Hello all. I am from Bosnia and this is my first post here. I am 36 years old, and I trained karate when I was 6. Trained for 2 years and get blue belt. But 28 years I haven't practice karate at all. But I signed up my little daughter and soonest I saw one training, I get strong will to practice again. So I signed up my self to ). Trainer gave me back my blue belt but I am totally rookie. So I am going step by step. In 4 training that I had, I learned again taikyoku shodan and heian shodan. This is all fine. I see my moves are bad and all, but no prob, hope will be better. ahahha.
What I wanted to ask, can you recommend me something to get my body in better shape so I can practice easier. For example, I can do 40 push-ups, run for like 10-15 min etc. But when do for example mawashi geri with right leg it is not to bad, but when do with left leg, it hurt... I hope you get the point ). So mainly wondering what should I practice at home to get better prepaired for trainings. Also there is very silly to see me with 192cm height and all other children. hahaha. Thanks in advance and sorry for bad english

Welcome to the forum, alen. Donít worry about your English. I grew up speaking English and Armenian, and my parents say I donít speak either one properly

Honestly, I donít think any specific exercises are going to be very helpful. Different activities stress different muscles differently. Your best bet is to practice the movements. Donít force yourself to go too far stretching wise, and donít put too much power into it. Ease into the new movements; stay comfortable with them. The pain will reduce and your technique will sharpen up.

As far as signing up because you signed up your little one, a lot of people start off that way. Itís a great way to bond with your child and itíll benefit both of you individually as well.

Congratulations on starting back up again. It doesnít matter how long itís been; it only matters that youíre back.

Great. Thanks for you reply and your advice. Will take it slow at start. I am very happy to start again and my little daughter like me there... We practice yesterday at home to. Now she do taikyoku shodan without mistakes and she will get yellow belt soon. My first sensei heard from current sensei that I started again and he called me this morning to give me best wishes. He is glad for that same as I do. He train our female national team. So this is honor for me that he even remember me...

Ps. I am overweight to. hahaha. Don't look fat because I am 192cm tall, but this is harder if have 10kg more than should )

So this all will get me to be a lot more healthier )
