What would happen if you combined military-style PT, an adventure race, and a karate class? You would get the Meriden Martial Arts Club’s first experiment without outdoor ruck march training. We only made it out for a few hours, but we loaded up our backpacks with sand and weigh plates, marched through the local Wallingford Land Trust, did tons of push-ups, pad work, katas, and had lots of fun! Here are some photos and videos; next time we’ll bring a GoPro and some lighting!
Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received.
If you would like to learn more about Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu Karate, or if you want to find people to train with, please contact me. I am the head karate instructor for the Meriden Martial Arts Club.
