We want to welcome a new student to the club, her name is Lori. Part of her training was learning how to punch, front kick and move forward into a front stance.
Victor Takemori Sensei was there to help teach and provide guidance in the class.
In attendance were Norm, Catherine, Jenee and Serena.
Basic training starts off with learning offensive movements before defensive movements are taught. So learning how to punch and kick is a fundemental starting point for SKIF karate. By learning how to do these things, then learning how to defend against these attacks becomes an easier learning process.
Advance training consisted of a review of basic katas, one through five (Heian Shodan, Heian Nidan, Heian Sandan, Heian Yondan and Heian Godan) as well as Tekki Shodan. All are needed to advance to a brown belt or intermediate level as well as being a necessary part of Sho-dan exam process. Training finished with the first one-step free-style movement to defend against a lunging punch to the head.
