My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 09/24/16

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:  Went to Clear Lake Modern Arnis in Houston to attend a wonderful seminar with Master Romeo Bollares.  SUPER FUN and a 10 hours round-trip drive.  Yay.  I saw a whole lot of Texas, and it was just a relatively small slice of it!
Sunday:  Practiced kobudo. Watched my Chiefs get their butts handed to them.
Monday:  My night off!
Tuesday:  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.
Wednesday:  Attended class at Hidden Sword.  Marital Arts.  Showed them some of the stuff I picked up in Houston and my teacher riffed off of that the rest of class.
Thursday:  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.  Getting the kiddos ready to test at the end of the month.
Friday: Younger daughter had to stay home, so I stayed home with her.  Mr. Chick taught at Mid-Cities Arnis.

Playing "ninjas", a movement drill, with the kiddos.


BLOGGY GOODNESS:

I posted this post of original content this week:
Monday:  Change Partners
Wednesday:  3 Reasons the Filipino Martial Arts ROCK (for Women)

I re-shared these posts:
Tuesday:   In Defense of Performance Martial Arts
Thursday:  More on Strike Mechanics
Friday: FACE-OFF FRIDAY: Gi/Uniforms or No Gi

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

I am moving my blog content on Facebook from my personal profile to a page for the Stick Chick Blog.  If you're on Facebook and want to get notified of new posts (and see all sorts of other martial arts content), please like my page and share it with your friends:  The Stick Chick Blog on Facebook

OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

This might be the best season of "Enter the Dojo" yet.  Every episode is a winner.



I definitely think this is a move in the right direction: West Point now making boxing mandatory for female cadets


FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

Long weekend.  We have our monthly Modern Arnis training session (four hours) today, then we teach ADE Women's Self Defense tomorrow.  Whew!

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!
