Friday Karate classes.

Classes were hard!

We started the first class with kata for a warmup.  We  did all of the Heian kata and we did our own kata twice so I did Tekki Shodan.

We spent a lot of time working on sparring drills.  We did anchor man drills which gave everyone a chance to score against each other.

The second class got interesting, we did a lot of sparring drills again but then we worked on throws.  We threw a roundhouse kick at our partner then they would grab out leg, pull it around and take us down.  We ended up doing about five different take downs.  Even though it was a good workout, it was painful hitting the floor so many times.
