Sock wrestling in our Ladies only Kickboxing class. Training can be fun and even have a serious message.

Thought I'd do some work on Tekki Kata today with Tekki Shodan, shown here, and Tekki Nidan.

Tekki Shodan is an intermediate Kata within the Shotokan style of Karate, generally needed to advance to Brown Belt grades.

Trying to maintain alignment whilst turning, aiming for the body to drive the arms. Some worked, some didn't.

Spent some time on HIIT this morning on a bike, skipping and running 丐

Finished off with some practicing of Kosukan Dai, a Brown Belt Shito Ryu Kata and some Tai Chi with The Yang Chen Fu form.

Been working on balance exercises on the Bosu ball. Front and Roundhouse kicks. Plus attempting a single leg squat. More practice needed 不

Really good evening training on the often neglected art of self defence within Judo.

We spent time working on Kumi Kata from a randori perspective and then studied how minor changes make it suitable for self defence, particularly, once we add in a slice of Atemi Waza.

Whilst Shioda Sensei was an very proficient Aikido teacher, this principle stands the test of time and is also relevant to all Martial Arts.

We've carried on the theme of kicking in the adults class last night focussing on supporting foot and kicking leg knee alignment. 
Towards the end of the class we worked on some 'fun' kicks. Jumping spinning hook kick, jumping Roundhouse Kick, jumping front kick, jumping spinning back kick and the double jump front kick in this video. They may not be hugely practical, unless you've seen Benny the Jet Urquidez in action, but they're fun to play with.

Working on chambering the knee last night to deliver Roundhouse kicks on target.

No gym for me today, some driving and a two hour private Tai Chi lesson with Sifu Steve Rowe. 
I asked to go through the kicking section of Chong Chuan. I made it through two moves out of fifteen and got 'stuck' on synchronising my waist and body. Steve made it look easy, working through the waist and using his structure to deliver the technique. I've got several pages of notes to work on ready for my next lesson.

It's been a chest and trunk day today in the gym with Oli. I've spent around 40 mins working through Nipaipo, which is an Yudansha (black belt) Shito Ryu Kata for 2nd Dan and above. It's also one of.my Kata to focus on this month.

It's said to have been taken by Kenwa Mabuni from White Crane Kung Fu, where it is known as Er Shi Ba and in other styles of Kung Fu as Sangfeng Quaichuan or Quickfist Form. Some styles of Karate refer to the Kata as Nepal.

The Kata has approx 47 moves incorporating punches, kicks, blocks, locks and throws.

Is this not the epitome of the successful Martial Artist? 
Where some people mistake gentleness and compassion as weaknesses, the opposite is actually true. The best people, not just Martial Artists, are compassionate, caring, softly spoken and are genuine.

What a great day at the Karate Wales Youth Open. A well run, well organised competition that started on time and finished early. A good standard of refereeing was shown and the coaches acted like true Karate-ka, humble, polite, selfless and supportive of all competitors, both their own and those from other clubs.

Really thrilled to say that everyone in the team won a medal today with outstanding performances all round. Particularly impressive was Jake Stanley winning Golds in individual Kumite, team Kumite and individual Open Kata plus silver in Other styles Kata.

The squad is pictured here with Lex-Jay missing having a trip to A&E to get checked out. Great support from the parents to one another and also to all the kids. Thanks for bringing the kids to compete.
