Kicks and more – 2/14/09 – Saturday Karate class

Sensei Plocharczyk had us work on some kicking drills today.

Kick that pad…

We partnered up and one of us held the pad while the other kicked.  We started with front snap kick.  We started with some light kicks for the first set of 10, a little more power on the second set of 10 and the last 10 were full power.  We then worked on some roundhouse kicks.  Between groups of kihon, Sensei had us run to opposite sides of the dojo and do a kata.

Make those muscles grow…

Partner push ups.  Sensei had us do push ups while our partner pushed down on our upper but Sensei Gatch thought I needed some extra resistance and put one of the 70 pound kids on my back while I did my push ups.  After that, Sensei had us hold our push up half way and he was kind enough to come and sit on my back.
