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.
