3rd Thursday of the Month – Advanced Classes (sparring, pad work, footwork, takedown defense, cardio)

I will be teaching every third Thursday night of the month (advanced class), starting on Thursday, 2/21/13 (7:00-8:30 PM).  The class will be a lighter version of my Sunday class.  Please bring gloves (boxing gloves are preferred), shin pads, mouth piece, and cup.  The class is very safe (and fun) and you don’t have to spar if you don’t want to.

You will find that most of what we do is rooted in Uechi Ryu karate.

You can go at your own pace and watch parts that you don’t want to participate in. As we progress with the class we can customize it to the needs of specific requests. Please let me know if there are any areas that you are interested in exploring.

The following is a representation of the class curriculum:

1.       Warm up: light exercises for 10 minutes ( could be cardio kata or other drills)

2.       Partner work outs (bag work, kicking drills, combination drills, foot work drills, trigger drills, etc): 15 minutes

3.       Pad work: 30 minutes

4.       Pummeling, sticky hands, ground defense or take down defense (15 minutes)

5.       Light sparing (15 minutes) (20%)

6.       Stretching (5 minutes)

I am hoping to have a lot of fun with the class and I look forward to working with everyone.
