Karate class: 

Class was tough today.

We did a lot of basics with little to no rest. Many of the more advanced basics such as inward block, elbow strike, backfist. Then we did some kick work. Front snap kick, side thrust kick, back kick, roundhouse kick and front snap kick all while keeping the kicking leg off the ground. Balancing for those moves it really hard but I didn’t do too bad tonight.

We then finished up with kata.

My foot feels like someone dropped a car on it. It is really sore today but it was fine in class.
