karate - the term means many thing to many different people, thats cool i suppose.............

So what do you regulary train, what makes YOUR karate ?

I will 'kick' off -

dojo training, twice a week with my Sensei. work the sylabus centered around kata, drills and kobudo, not to much sparring but plenty of partner drills.

home training, 3 times a week, hojo undo, kata practise, isolated technique training, makiwara/heavy bag, zen

dojo teaching, once a week, teach my student sylabus, inc tegumi, drills, kata, self defence principles (new guys)

weekend, usually teach privatly, or go to a seminar - get together with local martial artists to train/share ideas

shiatsu - wife gets a massage once a week and I try and learn a litte more each week.

research, Im always digging for more info, writing papers and asking my Seniors questions to make what i do as authentic and effective as possible, also frequent here rather alot and get to meet some good people

off the top of my head thats about a normal week I guess.

Hello shoshinkan,

I train at home at least 4 days per week so I don't have a set curriculum. some of the things I work on are:

10 essential kata (Wado Ryu), Kihon - Bassai

In addition to basic kata,
Kata Blindfolded- Helps me feel proper technique and alignment.
I'll try certain movements from kata while on the ground for ground fighting value. Sometimes with a partner.

Tai Sabaki - With hanging sandbag, Head level,Chest level.

Punching - Makiwara, sand bag, heavy bag.

Kicking - Heavy bag, Makiwara, Kick past target hit with heel when re-chambering.

Sweeping, Attacking ankles, Low kicks - Medicine ball (15 lbs)

I also do the basics in solo and combinations as well as kihon kumite. In a nutshell that's my Karate.

Good Luck!
Mike

Where's the sparring with you guys????

I weight train four days a week,karate class twice a week. I do kata,sparring(including groundfighting),linework,bunkai,etc..during classes. I do bagwork,kata,and work on basics on my own. That's my karate.

I am karate! I think about karate when I am awake and when I am asleep. Karate 2 times a week right now used to be 3 but I have a night class on mondays now. I weight train 3 times a week and hit my heavy bag on weekends. I work guys that don't train at my school and sometimes I work with a boxing trainer.

My main focus as of now kata, bunkai, conditioning, strength, and grappling. When I am training people most of the same applies but more conditioning. Also, I need more sparring.

Many of the drills I work evolve into 'freepractice', which is not unlike sparring.

I do compromise spar in the dojo from time to time, no pads though so it needs to be relativly controlled.

The Tegumi is free practise stand up wrestling.

Our 'trigger responses' are trained at as good as full force against street style attacks.

It works for me, sparring whilst interesting and fun doesnt do alot for self defence work in my opinion.

WTF??? You're kidding,right?

How else would develop timing,distance,resistance,knowing how to hit,what it feels like to be hit,adrenaline,fear,working from compromising positions,etc....UNLESS you get in there and Bang!! Whoah buddy!!!!

LOL calm down Brian.

'How else would develop timing,distance,resistance,knowing how to hit,what it feels like to be hit,adrenaline,fear,working from compromising positions'

by drills mate, they start of simple and formal and build to less formal and more demanding.

if were freesparring - then its no longer self defence IMO. Thats called a brawl and its completly different.

And I do spar from time to time, but I really honestly dont see any major benefits in doing so regulary, against similair skilled partners anyway. (although I did spar, ALOT for several years, which might have put me in good sted?)

Mondays i go to karate from 6-10pm. Class usually starts off with warm ups (push ups, sit ups, dips, etc.) Then we do all 32 kata hard and fast, sometimes breaking them down (all depends on the type of class we are having). we do a lot of drills and sparring.

Tuesdays i weight train. Wednesdays i run or work on the heavy bag. Thursdays i do mma, we all know how demanding mma is right? Friday its back to karate to teach from 6-8pm then we train from 8- sensei gets tired. We always have a different type of class so its hard to tell you guys what we do every day.

Saturday is more weight training (if the wife allows it!) Sunday rest!

I'd say I'm 100% invested in...something...but not sure if it is 'karate'. One two hour goju class per week. It focuses on kata, and then working on segments for application and learning body movement/dynamics. Also, a two hour kobudo class per week. Everything else, and anything else is 'catch as catch can'.
