Kata from Heian Shodan on up – 11/8/08 – Saturday Karate class

Sensei Gatch gave a good class today.

Do all your kata’s…

We started with Heian Shodan, then Heian Nidan, Heian Sandan, Heian Yondan, Heian Godan, Tekki Shodan, Jion and then Bassai Dai.  He explained different parts and details to look out for in each kata.  He then had us do our own belt level kata a few times.

One-step sparring…

We spent about 15 minutes of class working on one-step sparring.  This is one area that I always feel we do not spend enough time so I glad to see that we did today.  I was happy to be paired with one of our assistant instructors and working with him made the drill feel much different.

It was a really good class but the time flew by too quickly.
