Stuart led class. It was a good sized class with ten participants. Rose’s mom took this picture at the end of class.
We did some warm up footwork with combinations of punches and kicks going up and down the mat. Carolyne and Stuart took turns working with Rose on the basic kata while the rest of us did 18 Heian Yodan, 18 Heian Godan and about 16 Tekki Shodan. We practiced Stuart’s jumping in drill with the reverse punch as a counter. We did ippon and sanbon kumite. We finished class with each of us taking a turn on defense as the whole class one at a time attacked with an front lunge punch. It has a great feeling like gates of heaven.
