Got Grit?

These red forearms are the result of an hour of soft hand block practice at Tac Black Saturday morning. The smile says it all! nothing better than a fantastic training session with master Buckley and your fellow black belts!

This is an incredible display of athleticism!


I thought this was a very interesting article about determination and fortitude.


Warm Up:
2 times:
5 techniques in your belt tai ji style
5 forward snap kicks, 5 rear kicks, 5 wheel kicks each leg
Drop stance/ hardbow/ crane up and down mat
Straight leg kicks up and down mat
Inchworms up and down mat
Broad Jumps up and down mat

3 Rounds of the following:
1 minute max rep Double Unders (or single jump and tuck jump)
1 minute max rep Bok Fu Burpee Box Jump (or step up)
1 minute max rep Horse Stance Squat with medicine ball throw
1 minute max rep V Ups
1 minute max rep Push Up with hand release
1 minute rest

Notes: A bok fu burpee box jump starts with a bok fu burpee but instead of the jump kick, do a box jump.
Your score for the workout is your total number of reps over the 3 rounds.

Warm Down:
5 minutes belt torture for hamstrings/groin
