My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 03/10/18

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?


There was a water leak at our rec center, so Hidden Sword didn't plan classes on Saturday.  Instead, we went to the Dallas Irish Festival.  Going by Mr. Chick's count, we walked a total of four and a half miles. Fun, but exhausting.

Monday went to Arnis class at Hidden Sword.  We're working on boxing/Panantukan drills, which is always fun.

Tuesday I took Younger Daughter to Taekwondo class.

Wednesday, Hidden Sword and more Panantukan drills.  This is definitely material I want to get better at!

Thursday Younger Daughter had a show at her elementary school, so we all went to that instead of martial arts.

All in all, a relatively light week.

Not from this week - from two years ago - and not the specific drill we worked on this week, but you get the idea of the kind of thing we were doing.


Monday: Trust Issues
TuesdayAbout the Competitive Spirit
WednesdayThe Natural
Thursday: The Only Woman on the Mat
Friday: FACE-OFF FRIDAY: How Can We Get More Women Training?


And it's probably suicide.

I will never, ever get tired of this kind of fail video.

Sure wish I could get more of us on the mat. Check out these women with mad skills:

Look who's back to posting again, and it's on nerdy Modern Arnis goodness!  Check out Brian Johns at Bamboo Spirit Martial Arts: Modern Arnis Concepts: Go With The Flow

There's more martial artsy goodness I ran across this week, but you can see it over on my blog's Facebook page.  And as usual, I'm going to beg and plead all of you are on Facebook to like this blog's Facebook page and share it will all of your friends. The link to the page is RIGHT HERE.


Mr. Chick is training all weekend long, and I have training today (Kobudo and Arnis), and tonight, Older Daughter and I are going to see one of my favorite bands live.

Y'all keep busy and out of trouble.  

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!
