Good Leg Calves

Post by emattson »

Strong legs seem to have a special place in Karate, even though many experts I talk to prefer using punches over kicks. Feet are used to properly anchor the body for strikes. in shadow sparring, students are encourage to move around constantly. George Mattson's basic daily exercise class always include 10 squats and jogging in place.

Which brings up an interesting question that I had been puzzling over. What is the difference between good calf muscle and unhealthy leg swelling?
