My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 07/29/17

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:  Got in three hours of kobudo practice, and an hour of Arnis.  Man, that's more like it!
Sunday:  Chores, grocery shopping, and avoiding the Texas heat.
Monday:   Went to Arnis class at Hidden Sword.  We worked on our defensive responses and did a bit of sinawali boxing drills.
Tuesday:   Taught at Mid-Cities Arnis.  Worked on kicks with our white belts.
Wednesday:   My "day off" with younger daughter.  Too hot to cook, and I went to bed early (ahhh, middle age - when going to bed early is something you plan and look forward to!)
Thursday:   Classes at Mid-Cities Arnis.  Worked on self defense techniques with our orange belts.
Friday:  Stick sparring night at Mid-Cities Arnis and our second-to-last practice for a tournament coming up.
Not taken this week - from earlier this year, but still, me beating up a child. :)

FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

It's stupid hot in Texas.  STUPID HOT.  Oy.

Today I get to do a lot of kobudo practice, and I'm covering Arnis classes at Hidden Sword, so I think we'll be doing some bag work today.  LOTS OF BAG WORK.
