The Japanese Karate-Do’s Mid-Day class was a fun, but high intensity none stop class. We had a guest/student instructor today, Emmanuelle Paillaugue Bouttier. She started the class with a very warm up session followed by kihon (basics) drills. Using one fo kihon routine for testing (Step back age-uke forward mawashi-geri, uraken oi-zuki), the drills emphasized combinations, smooth and quick direction and technique changes.
We ended class with yoga stretches. Thanks Emma for a great class!
