Trying Something New (Shotokan Karate)

I have signed up for a Shotokan Karate class at a brother university and I am awaiting their response to my home university.  This is not something that I expect to subtract from school work, since I already dedicate time out of the day for martial arts and exercise.  I look forward to the opportunity of learning a new form of martial arts and expanding my knowledge.  

I am curious to the opinions of others that have practiced/studied Shotokan in the past as well as are still presently practicing.  Have your experiences been good? Bad? Both? 

Since I will be participating in a formal class again I intend to increase my workout intensity and my stretching.  By the end of next semester I am specifically aiming to regain my straddle split, and my front splits ( i will also be posting this last statement under my “Goals” Category).
