8/9/07 – Thursday Karate workout.

After reanalyzing my Karate workouts, I am going to train with more focus and when I train I train for real or not at all.  When I day for real, I mean with power, speed and focus unless I am working on something specific like my stance training.

Todays workout was kata.  I did one each of:

  • Heian Shodan
  • Heian Nidan
  • Heian Sandan
  • Heian Yondan
  • Heian Godan
  • Tekki Shodan
  • Jion

Doing my kata with full power and speed really helped me feel a difference and even after only doing those few kata I was spent.  I feel that the slow motion, lazy stuff that I was doing before was tricking me in to thinking that I was working out.  I had my son help me out with Jion since I only know about 90% of all the moves.
