My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 08/05/17

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.  Another "normal" day,. two weekends in a row. Yay!
Sunday:  Mr. Chick was training with Hock all weekend, so I was the homebody doing chores.  Got a lot done!
Monday:   Our household struggled all week with allergies (Texas is ground zero for it) so we stayed home, hopped up on Sudafed and Benadry.
Tuesday:   Stayed home with Younger Daughter while Mr. Chick covered classes.
Wednesday:   Everybody is still sick at my house, so one more day of rest.
Thursday:   Classes at Mid-Cities Arnis. Worked on stances with our new white belt, and in adult class, we have a short-term student studying our Women's Self Defense curriculum, so I worked with her..
Friday:  Stick sparring night at Mid-Cities Arnis and our last practice for a tournament coming up.

BLOGGY GOODNESS:

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:

Today we have a tournament in Jacksboro, TX, about an hour away. My teacher's school, Hidden Sword, will have competitors, and I have a student from Mid-Cities Arnis competing.  Me, I'm going to judge this time around.  Wish us luck!

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!
