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

Happy New Year!
ハッピーニューイヤー!


A Seiritsu tradition the last few years is to finish the last practice with 1000 punches and 1000 kicks.
近年の成立空手部の恒例は千本突きと千本蹴りです。

The 1000 punches took 14 minutes. The 1000 kicks took 29 minutes. We stand in a circle and each person counts 10 repititions. If someone screws up the count, they have to do push-ups.
千本突きは14分、千本蹴りは29分かかりました。丸くなって立ち一人一人10数えていきます。数えるのを間違えると罰として全員で腕立て伏せ。


Of course afterwards, the students are quite happy it's over!
全部終わった後は、終わって良かったー!とみんなハッピーでした!
