My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 04/21/18

Another week in the books!  Here's what I did in the martial arts - training, writing, and the various stuff I stumbled across.

How was your week?

TRAINING

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.

That's me, in the foreground. There's a part in the form where we change to reverse grip
and I was trying to figure that bad boy out.
BLOGGERY

Because of the stoopid migraine, not much fresh content on the blog this week. Sorry, y'all.


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!

OTHER MARTIAL ARTSY GOODNESS

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:



LAST THOUGHTS:

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.
