We’re back at Taekwondo training! I haven’t gone for the past few weeks as my Church’s Young Adults group meeting was changed to Friday. There’s gonna be two weeks break for the meeting though so I would be back for training during this period.
It seems like the long break has given my legs the time to rest. Back then I had lots of trouble doing axe kicks as I think I pulled a muscle somewhere. And given my hectic training schedule, I wasn’t giving enough time for my hamstrings to rest. I tried kicking the paddles and the dummy before training started and it felt good! It seems like my legs has become a lot more flexible and I could execute some kicks a lot faster than before.
Here’s what we did today:
