So Ill be spending the summer in Hawaii at a meditation resort. My focus here will be on yoga and meditation, but Id like to throw in some karate when I can so I can be the next Kung fu panda. I planned on keeping things simple, but feel free to add some ideas as Id greatly appreciate it!

What I have so far:
Yoga warm up
- breathing exercises (kapalabhati)
- sun salutations, arm balances, etc.
Kihon
- front kicks/round kicks
- knee strikes/elbow strikes
- punching/combinations with all
Kata
- either focusing on a few each day or going through them all
Kumite
- might punch a tree or two
Yoga/cool Down
- well rounded, but focusing on either splits, back bends or twists
- breathing exercises (Nadi shodhana/bandhas)
- meditation

I agree. When it comes to the katas, I think taking a few each day to focus on will be more helpful than doing all of them once. You'll be able to focus on troubled sections or techniques.

That sounds great! You might get a small board that you can punch lightly at first, and gradually build up speed and power against. Just to get the feel of hitting a hard target with your knuckles, and getting the arm lined up. Maybe even making light contact with a solid wall. Or a Makiwara if you have access to one.

Suggestions

1st enjoy, like no one is watching or cares.

2nd detox, thoughts, body and spirit.

3rd breathing often, releasing unnecessary tension and anxiety.

4th laugh, from time to time, or at least once a day and get it over with.

5th bring a bottle of baby oil, to massage muscles yours and new friends perhaps.

6th bring along a few thin thera bands and stretch and strengthen all of your muscles, they can teach you more about how to punch straight than any book ever could.

7th smile often enough to relax facial muscles, practice in a mirror first if out of practice.

8th hug the tress and thank them for the oxygen you are breathing, they give us more than we deserve and they really do deserve our respect and appreciation.

9th remembering that flexibility is an attitude that carries over to many different things including muscles.

10th learn how to gyrate those hips of yours, as this is the time and place to start doing it; as this is the fast track for becoming more flexible in the hip area in conjunction with deep squats.

Have a great time and keep us all posted
