Bruce Lee once said, "A goal is not always meant to be reached; it often serves simply as something to aim for." What is YOUR goal this session?

Without proper focus, there is no aim. This session we will be talking about focus as it relates to martial arts and life.

A great big sail on a boat still needs a rudder to go places. That is where focus becomes important. Focus is like a rudder on a boat. Without it, you will just travel in circles!

What will YOU focus on this session? Competing at a tournament. Breaking a board on the first try? Doing your form by yourself? These are all things we will think about this session, starting with our Smart Sheet handed out in class.

Down to details: Testing will be April 19, 2017 at 5:30 p.m. Tiny Tigers, 6:30 p.m. Karate Kids and Adults. Pershing Recreation Center.

Material for this session:

  • Beginners >> Songahm 3  Tiny Tigers do only first half of form (moves 1-14) and one-step #1. Karate Kids and Adults do entire form and one-steps #1 and #2.
  • Intermediate & Advanced >> Songahm 5. Karate Kids and adults must complete entire form (beginners must also demonstrate both one-steps).
  • Color belt board break is step reverse sidekick.

Stay focused on those goals and see you on the mat!
