Anxiety effects on Kata performance – Naihanchi

Hi all,

It was a while I joined in  conversation due to busy family life, last week I thought i will record some kata at the dojo.

That night was sleepless due to baby not well, day was not great either -toddler become a terrorist and did not cooperate at all, our baby girl was not well and grumpy all day. i was tired and frustrated, also my anxiety kicked in (which you can see on the clip, nervously looking around).

My perfect Naihanchi never happened, more I tried more mistakes I made. My performance dropped about 60% (personal opinion) best what I could do is to stop and let it go, with the plan to do better next time.

What coping strategies you guys and girls have i this type situations?

Kind regards

Les

Pinan kata at the new Dojo

Hi all,
 
So our new dojo open, I decided it would be great to record some training in new surroundings.
 
Clip below is a result of that session where we went through dissected flow drill for our Pinan Sono Ichi.
 
Camera used t record done some weird stuff with lighting so my apologies, but I think that over all new dojo looks and feels so much better then old one.
 
Hope you will enjoy this short clip
 
 
Kind regards

Moving Club to Guildford

After few good years at the St Mark’s Hall it is time to move to new lactation. Considering all the options I decide that new location have to be closer to home, this decision was dictated by new member of the family arriving in March. New cub will be at the Queen Elizabeth Park on the ground floor of the QE Park Centre. This hall is nearly new with excellent wooden floor and bright light, having a good feel to it. 26952156_1990748001163412_3991770896776039895_o
