Mirror image kata – 12/21/09 – Monday Karate class
Being that this was the last Monday class of 2009, Sensei Brien gave us something fun to work on today.
Mirror image kata…
I never spent much time thinking about doing kata in mirror image even though I often do Heian Shodan and Heian Nidan that way when I help out with the various classes each week.
All the Hiena kata”s didn’t really cause many issues for me but doing Bassai Dai in mirror was really tough. I really head to think about each move before I did it but I eventually made it through the entire kata. This really gave the kata a different feeling because I had to actually think about each move before I did it instead of just doing each kata without thinking.
This was a great class and I hope we do this a little more often.
