One resolution for 2016 we’re making at the Meriden Martial Arts Club is to train more outdoors. That means kata, kihon, and bunkai all done outside in addition to workouts to improve our fitness and general physical preparedness. One thing we’re planning in particular is to ruck. You’d have to be living under a rock to miss the biggest fitness trend of 2015! Civilian rucking is taken from military training, and what it entails is to carry a heavy bag for long distances. Mix in some other exercises like calisthenics and team-building activities, add some adverse environmental conditions, and you have the GORUCK Challenge.
