100 Kata for Karate Day 2014

On Friday, October 24th (25th in Okinawa), we practiced Naihanchi Kata for 100 times.  We did this to celebrate karate day, simultaneously with about 5000 karate practitioners worldwide!  In Okinawa, they did their kata in front of a castle at 6:00 AM.  We did ours in the dojo.

You can read more about the event here.

We did all three Naihanchi kata in sets of 10 each, and in a variety of ways.  It's was a great workout, and maybe we should try to do it once a month.
