Shotokan Karate official#1
It has begun! I have officially started taking my Shotokan Karate classes as of January 26th, 2011 at a University close to my campus. Sadly it isn’t offered at my own University so i have to travel a bit by car to get there, but I think it is worth it.
Since this is a beginning Shotokan course i feel that it is going a good speed for the people that have never done a martial art before, but for myself and a few others it is rather slow… I feel kind of bad being experienced in another martial art and participating as a beginner, but those are the rules and i also enjoy learning things from the beginning. The idea of hoping ranks is a tough subject, but i like knowing in my heart that i have everything down and being confident in every style i know.
The new terminology is alot of fun seeing as one of my majors is Japanese, so there is new vocabulary and such.
i am hoping more people show up for the next class, since the bad weather seemed to cut the class size in half of what was registered to attend.
