Shotokan Karate

It’s just something I’ve been taught. I had a Malaysian teacher in Iceland, but with something like that I think the biggest discoveries you make on your own. Obviously it’s a defense thing, but it’s very focused. It basically aims to kill in one hit, but it’s a lot about breathing. It allows you to use oxygen as a fuel for what you do. It’s one of the few physical things that’s good to teach singers to breathe and run at the same time. So it’s really good for gigs.
