Great Urban Race Challenge – I taught the participants karate!

Great Urban Race visited out karate this weekend! This race is a wild urban adventure. Teams solve twelve clues and complete exciting mental and physical challenges while discovering the city in a particular way  One of the challenges was to come in to our karate  dojo and learn A) 6 techniques fighting combination and B) do knuckle push ups on cinder blocks!  I was involved in the first part and taught the participants how to execute that combination. It consisted of a front snap kick, left jab to face, right punch to stomach, roundhouse kick, spinning back kick and a reverse punch! I had only 5 minutes to complete a short warm up and teach the combination! Crazy but it was fun!!  Sounds easy but doing it over and over for hours….. drained me! Couldn’t imagine a better workout!! It wasn’t just me teaching all the time – we rotated but I’ve done it many, many times throughout the afternoon. I enjoyed it a lot because all the people coming in were full of energy and fun! Most of them had awesome costumes. Here is a picture with one of the participants dressed as a Marijuana leaf 🙂 Hilarious idea!
