My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 08/27/16

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:  I rested, for the most part, still recovering from the stupid migraine.  I was weak as a kitten.
Sunday:  Finally got some energy back and I caught up on chores and things.  I wore out easily.
Monday:  My "day off" - hubby went to Arnis and I stayed home and made dinner!
Tuesday:  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.
Wednesday:  Went to Arnis at Hidden Sword. Worked on the material I'm teaching at MAPA 10 with our junior Brown Belt.  Brain candy!
Thursday:  Taught Class at Mid-Cities Arnis.
Friday:  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.



BLOGGY GOODNESS:

I posted this post of original content this week:
Monday:  Nunchaku - The Big Surprise
Wednesday:  Gold Medals (In Olympic Shenanigans)
Friday:  FACE-OFF FRIDAY: When Do You "Fire" a Student?

I re-shared these posts:
Tuesday:   How Cheering Made Me a Better Martial Artist
Thursday:  Exploring the "X"

(If you have a good idea for a Face-Off Friday topic, let me know!)


OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

ENTER THE DOJO IS RETURNING!!  Season 4 starts this week!  Happy dance!!



GET ON THIS!  New movie - "Fighting Sticks of Arnis" available!  You can order a download or a DVD.  ORDER HERE - and below is the trailer.  It's awesome to see people I know - and have actually trained with - in this amazing movie!



If you were curious about what I was talking about in my blog post on the Olympics - the Online Dojo - here's the details.

If I missed a neat video or article or other martial arts related thing of note, let me know in the comments!  I'm still looking for guest bloggers - if you want to try your hand at writing an article for the Stick Chick Blog, hit me up, thanks!

FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

So I'm teaching at MAPA 10 today.  This MAPA has 3 big guns... and me.  I'm a little nervous but I'm excited about the material.  If you're in the DFW area, hope to see you there!

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!
