Hey everyone, it's that time of year again! What is everyone's new year resolutions? It could be Karate related or general.

The only one I have, and I usually one pick one, is to do 1000 kata in the month of January. I wanted to do something fun, that I would enjoy doing in the process. Resolutions work best when the goal is obtainable and something that you already have started doing. I did the math, and I need to do 32.26 kata every day, or 2.7 every hour for 12 hours. I have decided to learn and perform Kusanku Dai for an upcoming tournament in February, so a large portion of my practice will focus on that (thank you Wastelander for having a clear video on YouTube of one that is close enough to my style's version for me to compare). However, I plan on sprinkling others in to keep things interesting.

That is a lot of kata practice, Zaine! I don't think I could put that kind of time in, but perhaps 500 in a month could be doable? That's worth considering!

1K Kata in one month only means 32 Kata per day. Seems quite reasonable.

Only resolution I have is to continue kicking cancer's butt and to remain in complete remission as well as remaining healthy in body and mind.

Wow, 32 katas a day seems a lot. I wouldnt be able to do it.
I mostly work 12h shifts, but mayby 10 kata would be reasonable.

And Bob I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

Luckily, I have the privilege of working from home 3 days a week, so I can get up every hour to bust out 3 kata. On the 2 days that I am in the office, my building has a fitness center that I can utilize. 10 kata a day would still be 310 kata for the month, which is still awesome!
