My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 12/31/16

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:  Christmas Eve.  Went to see Rogue One.  Liked it!
Sunday:  Christmas Day!  Nice day of food and family.  Our big family gift is a four-pack of passes to Trinity Forest Adventure Park - and all y'all know how much I love that place!!
Monday:   Hidden Sword is closed, so I made dinner and we didn't do much.
Tuesday:   Students are on vacation so no classes at MCA.
Wednesday:  Hidden Sword still closed.  Made dinner, played Skyrim.
Thursday:  Students are on vacation, so no classes at MCA.
Friday: Open Mat at Mid-Cities Arnis for stick sparring.  I notice that when I look at pictures of me stick sparring, more often than not, I'm smiling. It's because it's SO DARN FUN!



BLOGGY GOODNESS:

No fresh content this week, just a few reruns.  I find it's very hard to write when I'm not actively in class!  Don't worry, things will return to normal this week (and I'm glad the holiday season is over - I don't like having my routine disrupted).

OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

Hey, this blog was included with a BUNCH of really awesome blogs I admire (and follow myself) on this  top 20 list of Martial Arts blogs from Feedspot.  It's an honor to be included!  Top 20 Martial Arts Blogs & Websites Every Martial Artist Must Follow

I posed this on Facebook this week (I have mentioned the page over there, right)?



FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

New year, new goals - I'll be talking about that on this blog this week, and some big changes for yours truly in some areas (including the blog itself, which I've been planning for some time).  I'm working on my seminar schedule, including going out of town - out of STATE - to train at least twice, maybe more, depending on the costs involved.

Monday things get back to normal-ish, training wise, and I'm planning a long day of kobudo and maybe some Okinawan Karate practice.

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!
