My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 03/04/17

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:  Kobudo and Arnis day. Nice, normal day.  Yay!
Sunday:  Hubby was training (again) so I stayed home and did chores (again).
Monday:   Morning gym. My day off.  Made dinner and chillaxed.
Tuesday:   Morning gym. Taught at Mid-Cities Arnis.  As we just tested our kids, and a new session starts Thursday, we held a special topics class on pressure points.  Fun!
Wednesday:  Morning gym. Attended class at Hidden Sword Martial Arts. We have a new student so I spent most of the class working with him, and a small portion teaching our "Dos Manos" drill to another student, where we also did the same drill as bo vs. stick.  VERY fun.
Thursday:  Morning gym. I didn't teach at Mid-Cities Arnis as Younger Daughter had a school event and I took her to it.
Friday:  Morning gym. I spent the evening at the first day of the World Modern Arnis Alliance Texas Camp.  SO AWESOME! Still time to come by this weekend if you're in the area (and you wanna, it's fantastic)!  1st Annual WMAA Texas Modern Arnis Camp March 3-5, 2017

Here's the original content I posted this week:
Monday:  Making It Happen
Wednesday:   Myth and Memory in the Martial Arts

And here's what I re-shared this week:
Tuesday:   An Unexpected Benefit of the Martial Arts
Thursday:  Four Hand
Friday: FACE-OFF FRIDAY: Disability and Promotions


Looks like an interesting seminar - if you're in the area, you oughta go.

Interesting history of Goju-Ryu Karate posted over on Facebook this week.  Give it a read HERE.

I've obviously been going about this all wrong.


My weekend is going to be spent at World Modern Arnis Camp, acquiring bruises and having fun learning.  I hope your weekend is as productive as mine!

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!
