My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 03/24/18

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?

WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:


Saturday was a "normal" day, as I took Molly to taekwondo in the morning, I did a little kobudo practice, and I attended Arnis class.  Later that evening I attended the AKATO annual banquet, celebrating Sensei Keith Yates' 50th anniversary as a black belt.  Fun evening!

Spring has sprung here in North Texas, and my allergies are going haywire.  In between bouts of sneezing, I attended Arnis classes on Monday, took younger daughter to taekwondo on Tuesday and Tbursday.  Wednesday I went to bed early because the allergy meds were making me sleepy.

Here's a picture of the black belts under Sensei Yates attending the banquet. Can you spot me?

OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:

Seriously The Stick Chick Blog on Facebook, page has WAY more than what you see here. If you're on Facebook, like the page and don't miss all sorts of interesting, challenging, and funny martial arts content.  Oh, and you might spot the crustaceans plotting for revolution (go look at the page and see if you see what I'm seeing).


Master Ken is back!




I'm all about the improvised weapons. Check this out:


LOTS LOTS more over on Facebook, in case I haven't mentioned it 1000 times already.

FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:

I have started entering the period of "this is the last time I'll do this" here in North Texas (if you missed it, we're moving to Kansas City in early June).  Today is one of those things, as I attend MAPA 13.  Come join me, will ya?  Here's the details: Event for MAPA 13 in Dallas
