Working on arm and upper body strength in the gym, changing hand positions to make it harder.

Breakfast now and then some walking around a National Trust property.

Had a lovely walk through Cambridge University's Botanical Gardens. We stopped for a rest and I went through sections 2 and 3 of the Long Form / Yang Chen Fu. Rest over we carried on walking,  did over 11km today wandering through various gardens and college grounds.

The Dojo is quiet, everyone has gone home. Its time to do some more training, working on Unshu.

I must be improving, Lindsey Sensei told me that there were only 5 major things that could be improved in this section. There's only one thing for it, more training.

Only had a short time at the gym today, so went for a functional theme using the TrX system for various push ups, pull ups, jumping squats and variations like this where I'm working dynamic explosive arm action to improve striking skills, I added in some work with a 10kg medicine ball and 6 sets of fast skipping. Job done

The secret of getting good at something is practicing it lots to try to perfect it. I'm practicing Unshu Kata at my gym @winchesterenergiefitness after hitting the weights.

The sport development model, long term athlete development suggests from Ericsson the 10,000 times/10 year rule is necessary to become elite at something. Whilst more recent models dispute this, the are all clear that the more deliberate practice you perform, the better you get. Or as a Japanese teacher once said to me

Spent some time this morning practicing Grasp Sparrows tail in Yang Style Tai Chi trying to perform the form slowly to allow us to think about correct placement of the hands and feet as well as 'feeling' the techniques and the connections within the body.

I arrived at the Dojo early today to practice Kata by myself. Last month my Kata was Unsu from Shotokan Karate, this month it is Unshu from Shito Ryu Karate. The same Kata with stylistic differences and interpretation.

I finished teaching earlier than expected today so was able to attend the @iainabernethy seminar at @cantonmartialarts in Eastbourne, the Dojo run by my friend @Richard.canton.5 and trained with my friends @hardy.news and @dcollings75, had lots of fun playing with some of the ideas covered. We spent the  seminar studying Sanseiru and Saifa, both Goju and Shito-Ryu Kata.  Picked up some good ideas to come back and play with.

Who wants to be a Black Belt?

Everyone does. Until they reach their Black Belt and then they want the mindset of a beginner, the curiosity of learning new things all the time,  the excitement of new experiences and constant challenge to improve.

The best Black belts are also White belts.

I finished off my gym session this morning with the Yang Chen Fu or Long Form from Yang style Tai Chi. During both the weights  workout and Tai Chi I was focussing on driving the movement from my feet, whilst grounding them and relaxing my (tired) shoulders.

Working through a series of Pec flies. Started at 59kg and moved up on increments to 77kg, sets of 6 reps at each weight. Bit tiring, working through as much of the kinetic chain as I get to drive the shoulder movement.
