First loss of the season tonight. The team played aggressively but we were just slightly off with the timing of our runs and the touch on our passes. The other team got a head of steam and put a lot of pressure on us, and that’s where we lost the game, even though we only lost 5-4 in the end.
Back to basics tonight! Some of the guys from class competed in a local comp on the weekend, so with the kumite focus on the backburner again, it was down to technical work and kata. Felt like I trained alright, considering that I haven’t practiced karate in 10 days. Still a little down on intensity as I’m not fully recovered from my cold yet, but hopefully back to my best by Friday’s class.
First run around since coming down with a cold over the weekend. We won but I played a pretty crappy game, and I just felt really average throughout. Lacked strength in my throws, and found it hard to maintain concentration. Once I am properly back to full health, and back to karate training next week, things should pick up again and I will hopefully perform a bit better in goals next week!
