June 13, 2018. This is a very good class that should be taken multiple times. Very good instruction and drills regarding kicking.
I’m at 24 Hr Fitness reviewing and following along videos. GMAU has a new ‘completed’ feature. Good time to go back & review. I have a much more critical eye now that I’ve got 40 hrs of practice done.
10/12/17 This class has a lot of boxing and kickboxing in it. It is neat to learn and I’m glad to have it. However, I do not recommend rewatching this video if one is looking for karate class per-se. Great class, not condusive to studying for the belt upgrade though. Very insightful. I will watch it again when I am not in ‘karate learning’ mode as I am now.
Oct. 5, 2017. Good class-once you’re in shape and know the moves. First real combinations. That is exciting.
This is THE Kata instruction class.
This time around I learned to step backwards more. I think I was not stepping backwards but instead, sideways.
I’m not feeling very good AGAIN so I took this class at a moderate pace. I need to do this class again.
First time taking this class. It’s a bit different from the other classes. It is very good! Not much of a warm up, we get right into things! Very good!
I did this class tonight: Class 3 – Beginner Class Great class! Great for practicing downward blocks, knife strikes, upward blocks, getting in and out of back stance, punching, etc. Good warm up too. The time flew by.
I did this class: Class 2 – Beginner Class. It is a good full body workout Plenty of warm up that’s not too tough with breaks in the activity, then the instruction and that has breaks in the activity. Then practice stances.
I’ve not done Karate for 2 weeks-my lungs have just hurt too much and then the accompanying sleep needs. Working graveyards doesn’t help. What I need to do is not go out at night to places-cuz that’s how I picked up these 2 colds. : (
Great class. Easy peasy. Basic; calisthenics for warm up, into to; basic punches, blocks, and kicks. Cool down.
