The daily routine for the new class was very much the same as nowadays except that it was more strenuous. All the basics (kihons 基本) were done about 100 times each. Due to the large amout of students and the very small space, the first few lessons were done in shifts. Half of us did 100 times then the other half did their turn. At least we could take turns to rest a little bit.

Good things won't last. emoticon After 2 weeks, we were down to 10+ and Harada sensei decided that........

 

 

...... by now we should have been strong enough to do kihons non-stop for 30 minutes with 2 minutes break. Sensei's requirements were getting stricter and tougher everyday. He would move around the lines of students during the kihons and if he spotted any mistakes, he would stop in front of you and show you the correct way. If you still didn't get it right, he held your hand and guide you a few times. If you still couldn't get it right, he would punch you hard in the stomach to "wake" you up.

After correcting you, he moved on and if he spotted the same mistake when he moved back again, he would punch you in the stomach again very very hard to show his disapproval. Many student left because of this.

Harada sensei had a very good reason for doing this. He said that everybody should be 100% ready once they stepped into the dojo. If you repeatedly make the same simple mistakes, you are either "not here" or you do not "have what it takes". Either way, you cannot become a karate-ka and you are wasting his time as well as your time. emoticon
