Tonight is my first actual Shotokan Karate Class. I’m really looking forward to it.
Sensei gave me a private lesson last week and I really enjoyed it. I feel I can trust him and that is important to me.
He demonstrated a few kicks and punches while I stood there. His hands and feet came within 1/4 inch of my body and I didn’t flinch. That tells me somthing.
I expect I’ll be awfully sore. and I’m concerned about not remembering the rules of the Dojo.. when to bow.. when to meditate… etc etc.
oh, in case you were wondering “Ichi” means “one”.
