Rough times Taijiman, sorry to hear that. emoticon
I plan to get to my class early and work Koncho, Konni, Pinan 4 and Siafa.

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

So I do a mixed martial art :). Let me start with this, No one and I mean no one myself included believed that I could do this at my current weight. I have been doing martial arts for about 6 months and am an Orange belt. My first tournament is coming up on FRIDAY..... Wish me luck. I will be doing a japanese inspired form called Peacefull Warrior 2 and a sticks Kata and sword sparring. Can you tell I am just a little bit excited???

Same at my school, we also start with the Pinans, as well as Hinkas and Keri.

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

Wow, Seisan, a name I actually recognize for a Kata in another style.

In our Style (Uechi-Ryu) it loosely translates as twelve forms of attack and defense. The move that most of the public knows is 'The Crane Stance' that occurs about as about the 3rd 'movement' (bearing in mind that movements contain repetitions) in the Kata.

And Sanchin I try for every day. I've discovered that one is in a LOT of styles in various formats.

Cheers

Yul-Gok for me. I try to do my pattern every lunch hour, it gives me time away from my desk and recharges my brain as well

Sounds good!

Today I worked on Konni and Koncho, my two highest kata. I trained each for about 15 minutes.

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

Hi All,

This is another variant of what happens in the Spark People Cafe, this is a place to list the Katas or Forms you've done today (and quantity if you like).

The goal is:

Drive traffic to our discussion groups.
Let people get some spark points for posting in this thread.
Have people think about practicing their art every day (and not just exercise, cardio, and the like that is not an art but is an important part of our training regimen)

It is my hope that this thread will be one of the things that sets us apart from the pure exercise / nutrition / social teams.

Cheers
