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!

Great! I take Ju Jitsu now, been off and on for 12 years, absolutely love it!

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!

Also, cool compresses can help, or a light swim in a cool pool.

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

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.

After those classes (heavy on the deep stances) I do a self massage of my legs, it helps a lot!

SHAOLINWARRIOR - Its Shorei-ryu.

I had class again on Monday and learned:
Kiba Dachi - Horse stance and how to move foward and back in that stance.
My legs where jello by the end of class.

I also added Shuto Uchi - "knife hand strike" to my routines.

Off to a great start! A lot of folks new to Karate don't bother trying to remember the names in Japanese, I'm sure your Sensei is happy that you are not one of them emoticon

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.
