Had a free trial lesson at a local martial arts place and loved it! I did Tae Kwan Do and did really well. I learned the first five stances and the snap kick in just under an hour. I will be joining the class for real next time. They meet Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:30 for an hour. cheers Very Happy

Had another lesson earlier and I worked more on my snap kick and got introduced to the first stance routine. Was tired and didn't pick up on the routine too well,  but my snap kick has gotten pretty good. Not bad considering I have zero time to practice.

Had my third lesson today and learned the high block,  step punch,  and:D palm heel. Forgot to mention last time that I learned jab jab punch in that lesson. Got my uniform and white belt today! Yay !Very Happy (Oops. Put the first smiley in the wrong place. Wouldn't let me erase it.)

In today's lesson I reviewed the first five stances and worked on my high, middle, and low punches and I started really learning basic form one. Before it was given to me all at once. This time it was broken down into chunks that were a little easier to work with. They think I am doing very well. What do you guys think? Feedback is always welcome.

i dunno what to think because i cant see you through a punch, kikc, or how you carry yourself.

get your black belt in TKD and then ask that question. it  should only take 2-3 years. you can practice your cardio and strength at the same time, then you will be a lethal defending machine.

Today I worked more on basic form one and it's coming along good. I also did a snap kick and learned an axe kick,  both kicking a plastic board ment for kicking that comes apart  in the middle when kicked. I "broke" the board on the first try on both kicks. I had never heard of an axe kick before tonight so I'd say I did pretty well.

WooT. 

be careful on over stretching your legs, take it slow. you dont want any pain or even stinging when stretching. I over stretched my left leg and now my knee is funky and my hip pops every time i lift my leg up.

Ok. Got it. My legs hyperextend at the knees anyway so it's hard to over do it that way. But I can see my hips getting stretched to far if I'm not careful. I'll be careful. Very Happy Wink

Sorry I didn't update last night. I had a lot on my mind. I mostly sat and watched yesterday but I did get to do a flying side kick at a kick dummy. I didn't knock it over but I did tip it and had pretty good form on my first try so not too bad.

WooT #5 !!

Do you practice at home? do you do anything other than TKD ? Do you do excercises that help your TKD?

No time to practice at home. I do yoga every other weekend and both my jobs are highly physical. And I just started martial arts. I want to learn Aikido but there's not a teacher in the area.

Today was strictly observing. We warmed up, did jump rope and reflex work,  then I watched them spar. Got some laughs. A brown belt that looked like he was 10 flipped head over heels every time he did a flying kick and a blue belt whipped a red belt. I learned from their mistakes though so that's important. Smile

What did you learn from watching them?

I learned to move my body in such a way that I don't go head over heels when I do a flying kick and the red belts mistakes were backing up when he should have been closer and he needed to learn to keep his guard up and work on endurance. All things I can learn from.

Sounds good.  How was the flying kicker positioned that made him go head over heels?  And why should the red belt have been closer?

He's a little guy and I think he was throwing himself into the kicks a little too hard trying to make up for his small size with hard hitting kicks.

I'm really not trying to be annoying by asking these questions.  It's just that, the more detail you can give about what exactly you took away from your observations, the more the lessons will be ingrained.

It's a good habit to develop at any stage of training, but best in the beginning.
