My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 09/10/16

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:  Flew to St. Louis for my High School Reunion.
Sunday: More Reunion Fun.
Monday:  Came home, exhausted.  It was a long and fun weekend but glad to get back home!
Tuesday:  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.  We have switched our 6:00 class to a more formal program, so I'm getting used to doing arnis in a full gi again.
Wednesday:  Attended class at Hidden Sword Marital Arts.
Thursday:  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis. Our adult program, Force Necessary: Self Defense, got off the ground this week.
Friday:Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.  Review and stick sparring goodness!



BLOGGY GOODNESS:

I posted this post of original content this week:
Wednesday:  Living the (Martial Arts) Life
Friday: FACE-OFF FRIDAY: Is "Karate" a Generic Term for "Martial Arts"?

I re-shared these posts:
Tuesday:   Confessions of a Martial Arts Snob
Thursday:  The Myth of Wasted (Martial Arts) Time

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


OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

Just... wow.

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:

Today is kobudo day where I drive over to Dallas, and I'm excited for it.  Yep, excited to do nunchaku.  GO FIGURE.

I'm also starting a new empty hand training program that I'll talk about in the near future today.  Older Daughter is joining me, so that's going to be really neat.


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!
