The goal of training Shorin Ryu karate USA
under the direction of Grand Master Ansei Ueshiro is to stay healthy, increase confidence,
strength, and the ability to defend yourself should the need arise. Not to get injured!
In order to achieve these goals warming up is extremely important. I will preface
this thought by saying that the traditional warm ups at the beginning of class should be
sufficient, however everyone is different and therefore have different metabolic rates. It
is my recommendation to warm up before class for app. 10 minutes. At the end of this time
you should be sweating. Some good ideas for warming up include;
1/2 power kata
The reasons for warming up include;
raised oxygen intake
increased nerve transmission
warmed up muscles result in faster and
more forceful contraction.
Mentally prepare for the workout by
concentrating alone, or working with a partner. Every training session is precious.
so lets train smart and keep healthy.
