Saturday Karate class – 12/22/07 – Sparring drills with some free sparring too.

Sensei Noia had us work on sparring drills today.

We started with some simple movments where one partner would shift in and attack with a reverse punch and the other would block. After that, we worked on some kicking movements that same way that we did the punches. We did these drills to work on our timing and accuracy.

The next drill was an accuracy drill where our partner would move their hands to create an opening and we would attack that open spot. For example, our partner would put their hand by their face and we would attack their body with a reverse punch. After that, our partner would put one hand out and we would have to attack their fist guard where ever they put it.

We finished up with some free sparring. I felt lighter on my feet and do not get as winded as I used to in the past.
