Friday Karate classes.

Hard classes!

If any of you noticed that I typed classes above, it is because I signed up for two classes on Friday.  I wanted to try to improve my endurance and I hope that by taking two classes in a row, I will improve.

We spent most of the time working on sparring and conditioning drills.  We did a lot of basic sparring moves in the first class but the second class go interesting.  About two thirds of the class was standing in a circle and the rest were in the center.  Each of the people in the center shifts in and then throws a punch or kick while the other blocks and then the move on to the next person.  It was much like anchor man but with a little different twist.

We also did a lot of conditioning. Many push ups, push ups with one leg, push up then stop and hold out one arm and the opposite leg and even a move where we held the top push up position and did a side thrust kick movement.  We also what felt like a million low walks and lunges.

I am not sure if two classes will help my endurance or not but it has to help something.
