At my karate club people call me Sensei, and my friends just call me Richard.

1000 punches, 1000 kicks! 千本突き、千本蹴り

The Seiritsu High School Karate Club had our final practice (osame geiko 納め稽古) this week. We ended with 1000 punches and 1000 kicks! This has become a yearly tradition. We stand in a big circle and each person counts out 10 reps. If someone makes a mistake with the count, their penalty is 10 push-ups!

Afterward we went to an all-you-can-eat restaurant, which everyone enjoyed and the muscle aches quickly disappeared.

成立学園の空手道部は、今週、納め稽古を行い、最後は千本突きと千本蹴りで締めました。これは毎年行う伝統になっています。みんなで大きい円を作り、一人一人が順番に10を数えます。だれかが数を間違えると、ペナルティーとして全員で腕立て伏せ10回!


その後、全員で食べ放題のレストランに行ったのですが、楽しさで筋肉痛はどこかへ飛んでしまいました。
