    It will strengthen connective tissue. I take it for bjj and it helps a lot with connective tissue injuries

    Your training sounds like my MT gym, so probably it's the norm.

    So, where is your school in Greece? I might look it up next time I'm there. Einai stin athina?

    Congrats on teh real Karate!

    As far as Kata goes I wouldn't expect any for a while maybe not even until you are out of White belt. Shidokan is a Kyokushin spin off so it's not exactly the same but I didn't learn any kata until I was a yellow belt. It's basically just used for grading and making sure you know all the movements. Also another big difference from other Karate, all my belts came from fight wins not formal tests.

    Hey - sounds like you found a good one.

    My dojo mixes in a bit of Kata and ido-geiko, but its mostly, bag and pad work, combo drills and sparring plus conditioning.

    A lot of Kyokushin dojos have seperate classes for people who are interested in the exercise aspect only, not the fighting (tournament or otherwise) side of things that go a lot easier on you in terms of conditioning and sparring, but it depends on the dojo size I guess.

    Keep it up and it will build that true KK/MT type "stone-face" where the other guys lands his best shot and (even if you are screaming inside) you don't change expression. Half the time they decide then and there that they have lost...

    I've just made the mistake of coming back from several years off formal training and entering a tournament - 4 weeks back on and straight into the full contact, so I know how you feel - been limping since Monday.

    Anyway Osu Muffdiver, have fun.
    Sociopaths are people too.

    We only do this type of training once a month if I'm lucky. But when we do it's brutal, things like: holding up a 60lb Heavy bag on my shoulder in a deep horse stance(kiba dachi) while other students do uchi momo geris (inside thigh/pick kicks) on me. Like I said it's done so rarely, I wish it was done more often. Which is a good sign that we don't do it often enough or I'm a masochist.
