Thursday Karate workout.

Morning / Afternoon workout.

Side leg raises – 4 x15
Slow side thrust kicks – 3×15


No class tonight because both my wife and son wern’t feeling well.

I went through my entire test.

Moving forward and backward, triple punch.
Moving forward and backward, rising block with reverse punch.
Moving forward and backward, downward block with reverse punch.
Moving forward and backward, inward block, elbow strike and backfist.
Moving forward and backward, outward block with reverse punch.
Moving forward, double front snap kick.
Moving forward, front snap kick and side thrust kick.
Moving forward, double roundhouse kick.

Heian Godan and one step sparring.  I also did a Tekki Shodan just in case they ask me to do it on my test.

I felt good and my moves felt strong and fast.  Some moves even felt effortless.  The only moves that didn’t feel too good were the moving forward double roundhouse kicks.

I also did a good amount of stretching:

Bent over splits for 60 seconds.
Seiza for 60 seconds.
Seated hamstring stretch for 45 seconds.

I also did Side leg raises – 1 x15 each side and slow side thrust kicks – 1×15.

My feet are now 43.5 inches apart when cold and 44.5 when warm.  This is up an inch and half from just a couple days ago.
