My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 02/03/18

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?


Monday was pretty good.  I trained at Hidden Sword in Arnis.

Then illnesses struck the Chickie household again.

Younger Daughter came down with something on Tuesday, so we didn't go to Taekwondo.

Wednesday I came down with the same cruds she has, so I stayed home and slept in instead of going to Modern Arnis class.  Good thing I did as I am still stick as I type this on Saturday (better, but not well).

The whole family stayed home and slept on Thursday!

Friday, Older Daughter took and passed her driver's license exam, then that evening I attended the TUSK Seminar by Datu Tim Hartman over at Trainer's Elite. I'n not WELL-well, mind you, but I'm not going to miss this opportunity to train, so it's all about having many good drugs and liberal use of disinfectant gel.

No pics of me this week, so instead, lemme just say I LOVE YOU GUYS.


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

Thursday: Planning for Failure
FridayMartial Arts Wish: Change One Physical Characteristic

HELP THE CHICKIE OUT: I have goal for 2018 to get the Stick Chick Blog Facebook pages to 1000 likes.  So please, if you're on Facebook, like the page, will ya (link is RIGHT HERE)?  Share it with your friends who like the martial arts too?  Pretty please?


It's false advertising, I tells ya!

If you train in the Filipino Martial Arts, you will ABSOLUTELY recognize a lot of what these guys are doing here.  IT IS ALL THE SAME.

Good read about women's self defense, and the reliance on the "stranger jumps out of the bushes" scenario: Dirty Little Secrets

New video from Master Ken at Enter the Dojo, and this one is right up my alley!


Action packed weekend for the Stick Chick.  I'm attending the World Modern Arnis Alliance Texas camp (you can still join me - check it out HERE), then Sunday night attending a seminar by +Dr. Tye W. Botting (learn more HERE).  I'll be bathing in hand sanitizer and avoiding breathing on everyone, I promise (I suspect the crud has turned into a sinus infection anyway, so hey, that's not communicable so everyone is safe while I am miserable!).

Hope you have a great weekend, everybody!

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!
