Defense Problems with
From an anonymous female reader:
I'm practicing Zenshin Karate and
absolutely hate sparring sessions as I always get hit. My blocks
aren't good and my punches never quite make it to the practicing
opponent. I'm of small build and believe my problems are because my
limbs are too short. Any tips on how I can improve??
