Tips for Learning Karate at Home

Use Your Karate at Home Resources

What props do you have to enhance your karate at home experience? Practice correct technique by starting off slow and building up speed when you know your executing correctly. Use a chair or wall for assistance. Buy a punching bag or use a firm pillow to practice your strikes, punches, and kicks!

Turn your Home into a Karate Dojo!
Get a large mirror so you can see yourself when practicing karate at home. This will help you to correct yourself. You can also record yourself using a webcam or smartphone camera if you do not have a large mirror. Reviewing your recording will help you to identify what you are doing wrong.

If you are learning from an online karate program, find ways to connect your technology to your large tv screen. Now days you can use something like Google Chromecast or Apple TV to wirelessly mirror what’s on your mobile devices onto the big screen. You can likely buy an adapter from your local technology store to connect the device directly into your TV via the HDMI port as well!

Prevent Injury by Warming Up!
The last thing you want to do is injury yourself while practicing karate at home! Karate develops both the body and mind, so it is important to prepare both. Make sure you warm up by taking at least 15 minutes to prepare your mind and body.

Start with Seiza to prepare your mind. Sit on your knees and close your eyes in complete silence for 2 minutes. Do this before and after practicing karate at home.

Why Online Martial Arts Does Not Work!

Many will argue that Online Martial Arts training does not work.

A dojo training experience is ideal, but what about for those who do not have access to a dojo, or maybe do not have the time to train at one daily? I would like to argue that online martial arts can be a great alternative solution if you pick the right program.

Reasons Why Many Online Martial Arts Programs Do Not Work:

Too Much Focus On Working Out Rather Than Correct Technique:
If you search Online Martial Arts on Youtube you will see many workout videos. Martial Arts is a fantastic way to get exercise, but that is only half of an effective martial arts program. You cannot get a black belt with conditioning alone. You need correct technique and a structured program! Unfortunately, correct technique is difficult to learn when you don’t have anyone in-person to assist you. An effective online martial arts program should allow you to connect with an instructor and get feedback for your progress. Many online martial arts programs incorporate online belt testing that requires you to record yourself using a webcam or smartphone/tablet camera. This is a key feature that should be in an effective martial arts program!

Not Enough Structure:
Martial Arts requires a lot of time and effort. You can only go so far watching a series of DVDs. A typical dojo experience requires you to learn and complete a series of steps to progress in belt rankings. For example, you have to learn fundamentals, assist new students, and take a written and physical test. When training martial arts online, look for a program that brings all elements of a dojo experience. Typically a training website or App is helpful as it will allow you to train from anywhere you have internet access. Key features like time tracking, ability to interact with an instructor or students can make a drastic difference! There should be a series of events that need to be completed before progressing.
