Good karate class tonight. First class split the kids up. I took the yellow and orange belts and we worked on kata and an introduction to basic step sparring. Sensei Martin took the white belts and worked on proper turning in stances.

Adult class started out with kata. We each picked a random kata and did it for the first hour. The last 30 minutes we spent working exclusively on knife hand block with partners.

Sensei Martin taught the kids class tonight. She did fantastic as always. The new class is very attentive and very well behaved.

I taught the adult class. We started by working on knife hand blocks. Then we did partner basics up and down the floor for about 10 minutes. After that, it was kata. We all did the kata together, then I watched and made corrections on the next rep. We did that for Fukyugata 1,2, and 3 and Pinan Shodan.
