Staying motivated to stretch can be challenging to say the least. I recently started increasing my stretching days to help with my hamstring flexibility. As most of you know my kicks have been not as high lately. So I have been adding more yoga stretches to my warm up routine.
But I also just recently ordered a machine from bestlegstretchers.com. I got the pro model (Pro swift leg stretcher). As that one seemed to be the best. So lets hope I can stay motivated enough to stretch. It gets harder as we get older. :)
Here are some of the yoga poses I have been doing:

Karate uniform, or gi includes a coat, pants and belt and is worn by all students throughout their training. Some one carrying an uniform is instantly named students of karate, and most if not absolutely all dojos need use during training. When working different methods that makes it perfect for sparring their sense of convenience and lightness allow for greater flexibility. Consequently of modifications on the sleeves and pants making them only a little smaller than usual, stopping anyone's feet or hands being found within the sleeves.
One more thing is its durability; an individual carrying karate uniform can be fallen, cast, broken and can tolerate strong connection with the floor. Karate uniform also provides an emotional goal. It's made to place students in a far more 'real' frame of mind throughout instruction, particularly. Many schools permit you to use any white gi, but usually request the school logo be mounted on it. All of the uniforms can be bought through the college, and some are free whenever a person registers. In the event that the school has stopped providing them with out, there are numerous places online where you could get one, leaving the job of sewing the ID of the school on. As previously mentioned, the karate belt is included by the karate gi.
Even though your teacher should and will probably instruct you how to tie a belt, if you wish to learn how to perform your self to it, then it's quite simple. Understanding how to connect a gear is some thing most people learn per day of instruction, but I usually see people using their belts fastened incorrectly. When you place an uniform on you'll be asked to connect your belt properly, so you can easily see why it's an essential thing to understand.
Your karate gear is just a image of the knowledge and skills you've within your respective style. First, simply take the gear inside your arms and split in to two halves. Take the middle portion of the gear and put it along with your hips just beneath the navel. Carry on to cover the belt around you at the same time. Make certain the ends continue to be equal. Take the area of the belt inside your right-hand and cross it within the left, then slide it under both levels of the belt through the bottom and emerge on top.
This will now function as the left-side of the belt. Cross the best side and simply take this piece, then place it in the hole you simply created. Take the belt tight and there-you go! You've now discovered how to tie a belt.
