As we will have more time to train on our own I want to share some of my thoughts on one of my favorite solo training methods – Carenza. Carenza is my primary morning exercise and one I will use throughout the day. Though you are using techniques and movements that are definitely combative, my goal with it is therapeutic. It is a great way to loosen and build mobility in you shoulders, elbows, wrists, spine, hips and lower body.
Today, I will break down some of the basic movements used with a single stick. The goal is to be flowing and fluid. – Figure 8, X, Redondo, Abinico, Florette, and Jab. Have fun and stay tuned.
