Tuesday Karate class – 9/25/07 – Lower stances and better footwork.

Class was much like Saturday’s class.

We spent a great deal of time working on stance training again. We started with drills where our partner puts their belt around our waist and pulls us from behind while we move forward in front stances. I am pushing much harder from my hips instead of my shoulders now.

We then had our partner stand in front of us and watch our front foot to make sure that we did not move it when stepping forward. Then our partner watched our back foot to make sure our heels aren’t popping up.

We then finished up with some kata.

It was a good class. I really like the basic classes like these.
