Each movement in Goju-ryu is usually accompanied with a slight dip. I assume this is to force good foot placement and make you stable, but the turns we are required to dip all the way down (as far we can go) to develop our leg muscles. At the test we are supposed to be back to normal. Ah tradition. My legs felt like rubber.
While we worked on basics in the two hours of class we were introduced to some of the sections in our upcoming kata. Yikes! Complicated handwork coming up.
Here I am in all my glory! Cover your eyes.
