Hi all! There's a state karate tournament coming up in 8 weeks that I'm going into. I'm going to be competing in Traditional Forms and Semi-contact continuous sparring Just wondering what training I can do outside of my karate sessions? Should I be working hard at my cardio?I've seen something about kettlebells being good for explosiveness in kata but I have no idea about it. I can train anywhere up to 6 hours a day if I really push it so load me up with stuff! ATM I have been: -Stretching -Lots of kata practice with a video camera -Weights twice a week -Karate 5 nights/week (plenty of bodyweight exercises and cardio involved in the sessions) Are the weights really a good idea? Should I add anything or take anything away? Thanks!
