Tuesday Karate class.

Side leg raises – 2 x 15

Class was good tonight.

We spent the entire working on sparring drills.  It was tough but a good learning experience.  One drill in particular always gives me a problem but tonight, after a lot of slow moves, I was able to do it.  We start with our partner in front of us and they throw a punch, I block with my left hand, then I throw a punch with my right hand and they block with the same hand that they punched with last and then we repeat going back and forth the same way.  It even sounds confusing when I typed it here.

We also did a good amount of free sparring.  It was going pretty well until I went to throw a front leg front snap kick, slipped on a puddle of sweat and landed on my butt.  It’s really a humbling experience to say the least.
