How was your week?
Saturday I attended Arnis class and then I went to my second-to-last Kobudo class. We worked on learning our Kama Ichi form, then we seniors (and yeah, it still weirds me out that I'm a "senior" in there) helped out the juniors with Bo Ichi.
Sunday night I started getting a really bad migraine episode (that hit really hard Monday mid-morning) and it knocked me out of work and training and writing and most everything, really, until Thursday. So that was fun.
Thursday I took Younger Daughter to taekwondo.
So basically, training-wise, it was crazy light due to my brain deciding to no work more gooder.

and I was trying to figure that bad boy out.
Because of the stoopid migraine, not much fresh content on the blog this week. Sorry, y'all.
Monday: THAT GUY: Overly Macho Guy
Thursday: How do YOU Teach Discipline and Respect?
The Stick Chick Blog can be found on a profusion - nay, a veritable plethora - of social media platforms. Google Plus, Facebook, MeWe, Tumblr, Twitter. The Facebook page is the most active of the bunch, but I'm trying to make the MeWe group busier, too. So if you do that social media thang, I'd love it if you connect with me there!

Any week with a fresh video from Master Ken is a good week.

Reasons fooling around with a live blade is SERIOUS BUSINESS (no matter what they show you on television or in movies), example 442:
Today is a "normal" training day - kobudo practice and Arnis. Our school is also doing a taekwondo rank promotion today, so I'll stick around to help out.
Hope your week was awesome, and have a great weekend. See you Monday, as long as my brain decides not to be a jerk.
