My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 09/23/17

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:  I covered classes at Hidden Sword while my teacher was at a demo.  Had the tkd kids work their basics and do a skill-based obstacle course.  In Arnis, we hit the bags!
Sunday:  Kobudo and chores.  Oldest kid started getting sick, which was a preview for my Monday and Tuesday.
Monday:  I got whatever crud my kid has, stayed home from class and went to bed early.
Tuesday:   Spent the entire day home in bed due to the crud.
Wednesday:   Last day of the crud.  I worked but came home and went to bed almost immediately.
Thursday:   Just as I'm getting over the crud... hooray, the first migraine attack in over 40 days.  Meds made me exhausted so I went to bed early.
Friday:   Had two ocular migraines, but didn't take the heavy-duty med that knocks me out.  Went to class at Mid-Cities Arnis and stick sparred.

Stick Sparring is so dang fun.


BLOGGY GOODNESS:

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

MondayThe Intimidation Factor
Tuesday: Nuthin'.  I was sick!
WednesdayRegistering Yourself As a Deadly Weapon IS NOW AVAILABLE!
Thursday: Context is Everything
FridayFACE-OFF FRIDAY: Online Learning vs. McDojo - Which Would You Choose?

OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

This happens a lot to me at seminars where I don't know a lot of people. Can't imagine why people don't want to pair up with a dumpy middle aged woman.




Because of the de-monetaztion thing I mentioned last week on  YouTube, there's a new way to support "Enter the Dojo", via their Patreon.  I will be pledging as this weekend.  Won't you join me?





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 is kobudo practice and then I go out to Bridgeport to help my teacher work with a group of folks learning Arnis in a special program.  It's gonna be a long and productive day.  Hopefully this stupid migraine swarm I'm in the middle of will let up!

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!
