I am really sore after working out yesterday. Hope I didn’t overdo it. The idea is to be in better shape in a couple months, which is when I plan to start going to karate practice again.

There’s a chapter of Shotokan Karate of America here in Berkeley, the same organization as at Caltech. On top of that one of their black belts is a postdoc in the physics department and a former Clarke group member. So I’ve decided to do this rather than one of the university clubs, since I’ve trained in the style and I know somebody there already.

Soon I should be as badass as this guy.
