    OK, as of right now Im only about an intermediate in the style of Goju Ryu, but what would you like to talk about in regards to the art?

    No mafter how you try to rush the process it still will be a slow one when you are a beginner. Much of what you will learn comes with the passing of time in the system. There's no quick path to training martial arts just hard training

    biggest thing on stretching is often
    biggest thing on balance is bending the supporting knee
    and use the okinawa rattle to improve blood flow

    at my Goju Ryu school I feel like we practically live in Sheiko Dachi (Straddle Stance), but I think that is more strength building. We stretch our legs, back, arms, hands, neck prob all the "standard" stuff most cardio classes do and a lot of yoga moves have been mixed in at our dojo.
