KATA:

Set a clock for 20 minutes and use the whole period to work on two kata. Down-time does not count toward your total.

TECHNIQUE DRILL:

The focus today is on jumping kicks. Try each of these combos ten times off each side. The goal is to get a rhythm with these.

Combo 1: Gyaku mae geri, place the foot forward, gyaku mae geri, place that foot forward, then jump up while pumping to a tobi gyaku mae geri then oi mae geri.

Combo 2: Gyaku yoko geri, place the foot forward in a loose kiba dachi, step forward in kake dachi and throw an oi Yoko geri with the same foot as before, then turn and do a tobi yoko geri with the other foot.

MOBILITY:

-Take off your belt and use it to anchor to a table leg (or something similar). Do a seated split stretch toward that anchor for 2 minutes.

-Use your belt to a split stretch while laying on your back. Keep the base leg on the floor while you stretch the one in the air. 2 minutes per side.

-Sit up in a butterfly position, hook your belt around your instep, and bring that leg out to the side, holding it as straightened out as you can. 1 minute per side.
