Tuesday Karate class.

Good class.

We spent a little time warming up and then split up in to testing and done testing groups.

We spent a good amount of time working on basic stance training.  Now that most of the people that still need to test are all 5th kyu or above, the examiners are looking more closely at our stances and the way we move from stance to stance.  They are going to look more at our feet when we move to make sure our heals do not pop up  and are going to pay much less attention to the way we move our upper bodies and throw blocks or punches.

We also worked on kata.  My kata felt pretty good but my left foot is still not back to normal and is still sore.  I was able to perform a decent jump but I am still holding back until my test for now.
