Training with Sensei Robert Dejean, 22 September 2018

In part 1 he ran a basic class focusing on “feeling” your karate. He reminded everyone you need to push yourself to improve, push your stretches a little more each time, use your preparation hand – your checking hand he called it – as part of the technique. He said to use the floor to generate power and don’t just punch the air.

He came back for part 2 on October 13th!
