My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 05/06/17

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:    In the morning, Youngest Daughter tested for and was promoted to orange belt in taekwondo.  Later, we tested our kids in the lower ranks in Arnis.
Sunday:  Caught up on all the chores we didn't do when I was sick and when Mr. Chick was very hobbled due to a knee injury.
Monday:   Morning gym.  That night, we went to Arnis at Hidden Sword.
Tuesday:   Morning gym.  Taught at Mid-Cities Arnis, reviewing where our students stand, as we plan to hold tests at the end of this month.
Wednesday:  Slept in! Went to class at Hidden Sword, but I spent my class time working on converting our "competition" form, Baston Anyo Lima, into Jo.  Made a lot of progress but it's not done yet.
Thursday:  Morning gym. Taught at Mid-Cities Arnis. Worked with one student on his stances, as I finally figured out how it was not quite right and how we might correct it.
Friday:  Morning gym. Car broke down - again - on my way out of work so I had to get a tow home. I made it for our new "tournament" class at 7, and I taught our two students going to tournament Baston Anyo Isa.



BLOGGY GOODNESS:

Here's the original content I posted this week:
Monday:  To the Nth Degree

Great piece of advice.


I posted a lot of non-bloggy stuff over on my Facebook blog page.  You should like it, and tell your friends to like it, too.  It's what all the cool kids are doing. The Stick Chick Blog

FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

Today Older Daughter takes the SAT, and Mr. Chick spends the day with +Hock Hochheim.  Me, I'm taking younger daughter to Taekwondo and I'll practice my jo form and kobudo, attend Arnis class, and then in the afternoon, head over to Dallas for my monthly Kobudo class.

Hope you have a great weekend!

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!
