My my, I certainly didn’t expect to see this necro’d!

I’ve been unable to train either karate or judo for the past ... yearish due to covid, so I’ve been doing a lot of stuff at home, and have begun a steady descent into more and more niche stuff. Taught myself some taiji forms off a dvd, got way too into forearm exercises, and started hand and body conditioning routines. Also a ton of qigong stuff since I’ve discovered I find it neat.

Lord, my sparring’s gonna be so rusty when I eventually am able to engage in it again. Punching bags and whatnot are fine, but nothing replaces another actual person.

Gyms all closed up here - and by the time they reopened, I had moved. I'm down to only running basically, but itching to get back in the sport. There are no normal gyms near me, let alone boxing gyms or any sort of dojo. A bit frustrating - I even considered teaching some of the students here how to box just to get some practice (and school funding...)

Great Order

Good news is that anyone that's not been living with another martial artist is going to be in the same boat as you.
