    Hip stretching injury

    Alright, so one day about 1 1/2 to 2 months ago, I was doing this stretch. I'm pretty flexible, so I needed to stretch pretty far to feel anything in my hamstrings. I feel tension in the hip joint (?) before a stretch in the leg. So, I'm doing this relatively slowly, and then my hip pops...

    Super glue for blisters?

    Just walking around with the blister is fine. I don't need a bandaid or anything for that. When I go back to class though and continue doing the same things that gave me the blister in the first place (without the black tape that I use to continue practicing at home because it just seems a bit...

    Super glue for blisters?

    Well, I know that the reason why I got this blister in the first place was because I was using poor technique while sparring. I wasn't using proper footwork to begin with, and since I was sliding all around trying to run from people instead of kick or block like you do if you know anything about...

    Super glue for blisters?

    Yep, I figured that out pretty quickly today in class. Luckily it didn't take anything but the glue itself, but I will not be trying that again. Thanks for the pivoting tip, too.

    Super glue for blisters?

    Unsure of the art taught at my dojo

    That's also a good point, but it doesn't mention or allude to anything that would be specific to either art, which could be because there are a few arts being taught at the dojo. I guess my main confusion came with how different people called what we're practicing different things, so I'll just...

    Unsure of the art taught at my dojo

    Yeah, it would be. I'm a bit on the shy side in class so I guess I avoided asking about it. For some reason I guess someone saying that makes it pretty clear to myself I should have just asked a while ago. Thanks for solving an unnerving middle of the night thought of mine. (Man... it does seem...

    Unsure of the art taught at my dojo

    I've been practicing at this dojo for sometime over half a year now, but I'm still not sure what art is being taught. I know it is either karate or taekwondo, especially since I have heard those two terms being used in the dojo. We do practice many kicking techniques including spin kicks and...
