The Daily Dozen For The Holidays

The Daily Dozen is a great way to keep your training going through the holidays. The Daily Dozen is choosing 12 martial arts techniques and doing them 12 times on each side of your body. Blue belts know dozens of martial techniques, so you can train in different areas each day of the week. Here are some examples based on my training schedule through the years:

Day One

Front punch … 12 with the right hand, 12 with the left hand

Reverse punch … 12 with the right hand, 12 with the left hand

Front palm strike … 12 with the right hand, 12 with the left hand

Reverse palm strike … 12 with the right hand, 12 with the left hand

Snap kick … 12 with the right foot, 12 with the left foot

Thrust kick … 12 with the right foot, 12 with the left foot

Front knife hand … 12 with the right hand, 12 with the left hand
