Oh, there was more….

For the next drills, at least what I can remember, we did some stationary reverse punches.  It was nice to not have to move my legs but holding the stance and the hip rotation made the drill intense.

Next we did front leg knee strike, step down and reverse punch, then front leg knee strike, rear front snap kick and rear leg front snap kick and front leg knee strike.

Classes like these make me glad that I take Karate!
