    1830-2000: Training
    - warm-up
    - stretching
    - 12 x 2 minute rounds of circuit drills (3 x rounds on free weights and steel bar, 3 x rounds on heavy bag, 3 x rounds on Bob, 1 x round shin conditioning, 1 x round wall hangs, 1 x round straddle stance)
    - kata (Seienchin)

    Note: Our rounds are divided into six segments: 20 seconds for a two minute round and 30 seconds for a three minute round.
    For the free weights, we’ll do rapid straight punches with the dumbbells: 3 lbs, 5 lbs, 3 lbs, 8 lbs, 3 lbs, 10 lbs.
    We do a round of Bo basics with the steel bar.
    We also do a round of 12 lbs dumbbells from the back. Double arm and alternating single arms by 20 or 30 second segments.
    Although the weight is light, the exercises are done in rapid succession, so it’s a good workout for your arms. It’s also challenging to hit the heavy bag afterwards with power.
    Does anyone else train like this?

    1830-2000: Training
    - warm-up
    - stretching
    - sparring
    - combinations on the heavy bag
    - offence/defence drills
    - more sparring
    - basic hand strikes
    - kata (Tensho)

    Note: My instructor went over the finer points of basics and Tensho Kata tonight after I had previously discussed my concerns with him regarding my training. I feel better after tonight’s class. I feel like I understand the subtleties of these techniques a little better.

    I really like Tensho Kata, and usually include it in all of my workouts, even if it is just a part of my cool down process at the end.

    My Instructor also runs some pretty decent close range (phone box fighting) Impact Drills on the pads, using Tensho techniques (teisho and kakuto uchi) which I absolutely L O V E

    1300: Meal
    - Chicken breast
    - rice
    - steamed vegetables

    1630: Pre workout smoothie
    - 1% milk
    - frozen berries
    - instant oatmeal
    - protein powder
    - peanut butter

    1830 - 2000: Karate Training
    - warm-up with “the exercise that makes you look forward to push-ups”, line work, and abdominal exercises
    - stretching
    - heavy bag work
    - sparring
    - offence/defence drills
    - more sparring
    - 100 punches
    Note: “The exercise that makes you look forward to push-ups” starts standing with the arms held straight out for what feels like an eternity. First it’s small circles forward followed by push ups, small circles back, followed by push-ups, left arm forward circles/right arm back circles followed by push-ups, alternate with more push-ups, arms up and down, palms back/forward, hold, etc, all finished with one perfect slow concentrated push-up. I’m sure you get the idea. The name of the exercise is quite fitting.

    2030: protein shake

    2100: Meal (Buddha Bowl
    - spinach
    - rice
    - shredded carrot
    - shredded red cabbage
    - sugar snap peas
    - red peppers
    - chick peas
    - cashews
    - Asian dressing

    Note: I had a training session tonight, and a great day overall. I had so much energy, and class was amazing. I’m so happy and grateful that I have training in my life. It gives me a sense of purpose, a path to walk, and legitimately makes me feel happy to be alive.

    My dojo is open again. I’ve been back to a couple classes so far. Unfortunately sparring is not yet an option, but classes have been fairly intense.

    There’s really no substitute for good hard martial arts training. I did a lot of cardio and body weight exercises in quarantine, but I’ve been very sore after classes.
