exploringkarate

I've been a keen karate student for 16 years, Shukokai and Shotokan, but there still seems to be no shortage of things to learn and explore. I'm hoping this blog will allow me to share my experiences and hear other martial artists thoughts.

Karate isn’t just for the Dojo No.2: the morning shave

I’m 6 foot 5 tall which has a lot of plus sides but occasionally some things aren’t quite set up to cater for the taller person. The mirror in our bathroom isn’t that big so when I’m having a shave I have to hunch down a bit to take a look and make sure I’ve done a thorough job. But again karate comes to the rescue with the shiko dachi stance. By dropping into shiko dachi I can lower myself down to just the right height to ensure I get a good view in the mirror without an uncomfortable hunch down.

So Karate isn’t just for the Dojo :-).
