Today's training

 Today my training regime comprised of Kihon and Kata only; namely, the five core chudan uke-waza: Chudan soto uke, Chudan uchi-uke, Shuto chudan-uke and also, while gedan, Gedan-barai. This included the IKS Shodan and Nidan Grading Syllabus renzokuwaza.

Kata included Gyaku-zuki no kata, Heian Nidan, Heian Godan, Bassai Dai and Raiko.

Currently I am going through a 're-assessment phase' to establish new goals in my own self-training. This is periodically necessary to keep improving. When I look back, I can now see how far my karate has come; moreover, how much more I need to grow to be even a fraction as good as my seniors.
