Hey all! Just found the group. I'm currently an orange belt at a dojo where we rotate Shotokan karate, Kodokan judo, and Seiei-kan ju-jitsu on a monthly basis. It's definitely more of a challenge than studying one art would be, in my opinion. I had no prior training though and have been here for about a year. I think judo is probably my favorite, but all of the styles definitely have their purpose. I'm thankful I found martial arts; I haven't worked out since high school and it shows haha. Also, Steelers fan, you seem to be learning very quickly! Props to you if you can remember all of the techniques you are learning!

At 49 I def know all about soreness. Ive had to put almost all my wk outs on hold this mth because Ive aggravated a health condition. Also when you do a hard work out its important to drink a good recovery product within 30 min. You need to get nutrients into those muscles. That will help reduce soreness much quicker.
Well, I had my second karate class last night. THey worked my hard but it wazs fun and I feel that I am learning. I've learned: Jodan Uke - Upward Block Gedan Barai - Downward Block Seiken Tsuki - Fore fist strike Mae Geri Keage - Front snap kick
I've learned how to practice these in sets of 3 but I can't remeber what the instructor called the practice routine.
