"Roshi's Training" Workout

This should be fun! Just don't die.

(Note: Do NOT attempt the next level without first completing the previous level in its entirety three times. If you fail on a set, continue your workout, but do not count the workout as going towards the three needed successes.)

I am currently attempting to work on both the Grappler Baki Training Manual and some workout plans based on it and the Dragonball series. These workouts will be specific to characters or sagas, and will, in general, have some sort of theme attached to them. I'll try to get one up as soon as possible. I hope they will help in organizing your training.

Grappler Baki- Part I


Grappler Baki is quite possibly the most brutal martial arts anime ever and that is awesome. The story follows Hanma Baki, son of Hanma Yujiro (the Most Powerful Creature in the World), as he quests to become even more powerful than his father. Along the way, he encounters some of the most skilled martial arts practitioners this world has to offer and pushes himself to every extreme imaginable to become stronger. There is a treasure trove of training ideas within Grappler Baki and a vast measure of combat arts to analyze. So, let’s begin.

Ok, so I'm a slacker.

I wasn't sure if anyone was actually reading, so I wasn't really all that jazzed about putting the time in with school and training and home life to actually make workouts and things. However, now that I see that at least one person has an interest in the blog, I'll be happy to be regular with it again. Heck, I'll even start back with that person's request: Grappler Baki.

Here's what I'm planning:
1. Workouts based on several of the main characters training (or implied training).
2. An analysis of the styles and techniques presented in Grappler Baki and their real-world applications.

Let's see how often we can get something up here, shall we?
