My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 10/14/17

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 class. A normal, relatively sedate Saturday for a change!  I've been getting in a lot of kobudo practice and that's been very helpful.
Sunday:  Chores, kobudo practice, and another Chiefs victory (undefeated and feels GREAT!)
Monday:  Took the day off.  Kids had the day off so I actually stayed home and hung out with them.
Tuesday:   Took younger daughter to class at Hidden Sword, and practiced kobudo. 
Wednesday:   Arnis class at Hidden Sword.  Worked on some applications out of some of our anyos (forms), and did some disarms we haven't done in a while.
Thursday:   Took younger daughter to class at Hidden Sword. Kobudo practice.
Friday:   Friday night stick fighting at Mid-Cities Arnis, plus I got in a lot of kobudo practice.

I'm gonna get ya, kid!

BLOGGY GOODNESS:

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

WednesdayThe Martial Arts Student Bill of Rights
Thursday: The Joy of Newbies
FridayQuestions from Quora: Unfit Girl Has Concerns About Starting Martial Arts Training

OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

I would be thrilled if my kid got ninja throwing stars for good grades.


That WOULD be a problem.

If you haven't subscribed to Datu +Dieter Kn├╝ttel's YouTube channel, you should.




Nice article about some older ladies studying Tae Kwon Do.  A common question asked on Quora and in other places is "Am I too old to start training in martial arts?".  This is usually asked by people in their 20's.  Heh.  Golden Girls: Lawson, Hodges prove martial arts has no age limit

And here's this week's video from the world's best martial arts channel, "Enter the Dojo":





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:

Mr. Chick is out of town at a seminar this weekend. So not only am I managing children, I'm also practicing kobudo and arnis in the morning, then this afternoon I go to my last formal kobudo class before next month's black belt test.

Yup, I'm getting nervous about that now.

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!
