The first day of training included three SKIF Hawaii Sensei's: Victor Takemori, Ed Kiyuna and Ron Awa. Also training were Norm, Mel, Serena, Amini and Jason. My thanks goes out to everyone who helped kick-start the first evening of training!
Training consisted of basic Shotokan movements such as: lunging front punch, front snap kick, rising block and five-step kumite was also done to improve distance and focus.
Advanced training consisted of combinations including outside block, back fist strike, and reverse punch. Side snap kick followed by side thrust kick. Also, freestyle kumite with practiced and included referee practice during the kumite session.
