My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 01/02/15

Here's how my week of training, writing, teaching, and miscellaneous Filipino Martial Arts-y goodness went.

What have you been up to this week?

THE WEEK DAY-BY-DAY:

Saturday:  Planning session for Mid-Cities Arnis 2016 calendar.  Recorded video for Mid-Cities Arnis and Hidden Sword martial arts.  Practiced bo and a bit of tonfa.
Sunday:   Practiced bo and tonfa.  More videos for MCA and Hidden Sword.
Monday:  Just a bit of bo and tonfa today.
Tuesday:  Review class for Mid-Cities Arnis.  Made sure everybody was doing well on the topics we covered in December.
Wednesday:  Just a little bo today.
Thursday: New Year's Eve.  I really don't celebrate this holiday - never have.  Sat home with family.
Friday: Day off, so I wrote a bunch of stuff for this blog and for Mid-Cities Arnis.  I cleared out my garage to have a better practice space - having no storage is a real problem!

BLOGGY GOODNESS:

I updated the blog template this week - brighter, cleaner and sleeker for 2016.  What do you think?

I posted these posts of original content this week:

Monday: The Stick Chick Blog - Top Posts of 2015
Wednesday: 2015 Goals - Final Update

I re-shared these posts:
Tuesday: In Defense of Violence
Thursday: Injury: Just Train
Friday: FACE-OFF FRIDAY: Is MMA a "Martial Art"?

My martial arts school is on holiday hiatus - our bad luck that the holidays fall on Thursday/Friday this year - so no value post this week.

OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

Ran across this nice interpretation of Baston Anyo Isa by Dan O'Connell as a two-person set.



If I missed a neat video or article or other martial arts related thing of note, let me know in the comments!

FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

So glad the holidays are over.  Life gets to go back to normal - hooray!

So what did YOU do this week?  What did you train? What did you teach?  Did you see any really cool martial arts stuff online?  Let me know!
