My week in Stick Chicktivity - 06/17/17

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:  Kobudo and Arnis day.  It's that time of the month where I go over to Dallas for my two-hour kobudo class.  I kinda stunk up on the joint but we're getting close to the end of the sai material and to the point where we'll be practicing all we've learned over the past few years.
Sunday:  Taught ADE Women's Self Defense and spent some time with my youngest and my inlaws - they left town on Monday for a long trip and I won't see any of them for a long time.
Monday:   Caught up on chores.
Tuesday:   Class at Mid-Cities Arnis. We're working on new curriculum stuff with our recently promoted students in our family class, and we played sinawali in our adult class.
Wednesday:   Migraine started, so I stayed home and slept.  Day 1 of three days of "fun", ugh.
Thursday:   Class as Mid-Cities Arnis. Worked on anyos in family class, and worked on basics with a new student in Adult class.  Migraine continues at a low-level of annoyance.
Friday:  Migraine finally requires more nap time.  Stayed home and took it!


No new pictures of me this week, so here's one from about a month ago in our women's self defense.

BLOGGY GOODNESS:

Here's the new posts or reshared older posts I sent out this week:

OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

The answer, Hannah Hillam, is ALL THE THINGS.


Nice video by +Ando Mierzwa (and +Jesse Enkamp) - entertaining and informative!



I ran across a rumor over on Tumblr that YouTube is shadowbanning martial arts content.  I'd like to hear from you martial arts YouTubers if you think this is true, or not.

If you run across cool martial arts stuff you think I should see, please do post them in the comments!


FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

Thank goodness I have a relatively sedate weekend planned.  Arnis, then kobudo practice.  I am going to a camp next week in Colorado, so it's best to rest up and hopefully beat back this dumb migraine that has been plaguing me all week.

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!
