My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 4/1/17

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:  Secret training at the ninjer base over in Dallas.  I'd tell you more, but I'd have to kill you.
Sunday:  Practiced sai. Who knew you could actually throw them through drywall?  It's way easier than it was with the tonfa.  Used it to spear ninjers coming in the garage.  Handy!
Monday:   Morning gym.  Deadlifted 500 pounds repeatedly - man, my arms are tired.  My "night off" from martial arts, so I roasted a goose for dinner, but it went uneaten as I had to use it as an improvised weapons against yet another ninjer attack.
Tuesday:   Morning gym.  Ran the equivalent of a marathon, and nobody was even chasing me (ninjers slept in, apparently).  Taught class at Mid-Cities Arnis, where we worked on using flying side kicks against ninjers on horses.  The rec center was really, really pissed about how the horses scratched up the floor, and we won't even get into the stink-eye the cleaning folks gave us on our way out.
Wednesday:  Skipped the gym and slept in. Allergy season is in full swing here, so instead of going to class at Hidden Sword, I ended up going to bed early in an allergy med coma.  Ninjer free day.
Thursday:  Morning gym.  Leg day, so I practiced kicking truck tires across the gym. Later at Mid-Cities Arnis we worked on knife disarms with live blades (thanks, ninjers!), then we practiced our emergency first-aid against really deep cuts.
Friday:  Morning gym. Did a thousand pushups on my pinkies.  I'm getting stronger, yay!  At Mid-Cities Arnis, as usual on Fridays, we stick spar against the ubiquitous ninjers. Being smacked repeatedly in the face with bahi sticks really stings, lemme tell ya!  Ha!

BLOGGY GOODNESS:

Wednesday: The Perils of Ninjer Attacks: Three Strategies
Thursday:  Ninjer Secrets of Arnis REVEALED!


OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

It was a busy week, indeed (did I mention there were ninjers?)  So I don't have much to share with you, other than the stuff over on my Facebook page (it's HERE, by the way - won't you please like and share it?  PLEASE?!?!?!)

This is INCREDIBLY not safe for work and I'm not kidding. It's DEADPOOL. I shouldn't have to say it.  You are warned, and it is AWESOME.




FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

Today is MAPA 11 and if you're in the area, you should evade the ninjers, come on by, and challenge me to a death match, will ya?

By the way, one of the things I listed in my week o' stuff I did is true. Can you guess which?  Nope, not the goose thing.

Hope your week is full of deadly goodness and completely 100% ninjer free.

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!
