My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 04/08/17

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?

THE WEEK DAY-BY-DAY:

Saturday:  Metroplex Arnis Players Alliance 11th gathering over in Richardson. As always, it was awesomesauce.  Also got in a little sai practice, which is good.
Sunday:  Chores, chores, chores.
Monday:   Morning gym.  My day off, so I cooked a little.  Yay!
Tuesday:   Morning gym.  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.  In family class, we worked on the jab and the cross and the jab/cross combo.  In adult class, we worked on chaining together different sinawali patterns, and how there's more in sinawali than meets the eye.
Wednesday:  Skipped the gym and slept in.  Class at Hidden Sword.  We're in the home stretch to promoting our brown belts to black, so we worked on some material they're going to have to know.
Thursday:  Morning gym.  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.  In family class, we worked on kicks. In adult class, we worked on interruptions of single sinawali.
Friday:  Morning gym. Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis.  AW YISS, FRIDAY NIGHT STICK FIGHTS!

The consequences of being dumb enough to grab his wrist.

FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

Mr. Chick is under the weather, so I will be taking Younger Daughter to an Easter Egg Hunt, and then later today I have my once-a-month class over in Dallas for kobudo.  It's really nice weather here, so we'll probably be training outside.

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!
