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?


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!


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.


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!


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!
