Well. It's been a while since I posted and lots has happened in my martial arts world. I've been lucky enough to continue training with the inimitable Peter May and Sakagami Sensei. I've competed in European Championships in England, Hungary and Lisbon but missed out on a place in the team for world Championships in Japan and moved away from Leicester Karate Association to join Hei Jo Shin.
I've also, by virtue of being able to train on Mondays, taken up a new martial art; taekwondo.
Followers of my earlier blog will know I've tried a few taekwondo clubs in the past, but I'm really enjoying the opportunity to learn more about the art, and starting as a white belt and working ones way up is the way to do that.
This blog is my attempt to compare and contrast karate and taekwondo and comment on the different benefits of each.
I hope you'll join me..
