Well, after over 4 years, and an extra 10 kilos in weight, I went back to karate on a formal basis today. The martial arts are back in my life!
I used to train in the UK in Shotokan karate, under a great instructor called Dave Thomson in Laceby and Aiden Trimble in Nottingham whilst I was in University. That was then. This is now.
I’ve now joined a small, new local club though the difference is that this is Kyokushin karate which has slightly different moves and stances, so it’s going to be an interesting summer!
All I need to do now is get rid of that extra 10Kg.
