My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 5/26/18

I
Here's what I did in the martial arts - training, reading, writing, etc. - this week.

How was your week?

TRAINING

On Sunday, I helped out at my teacher's monthly Arnis Instructor's course.  This has been a truly fun thing to do and I'll miss them!

Packing packing packing... oh yes, Arnis! Wednesday night.  We worked on a variety of drills from the "Kombatan side" of my teacher's blend of Presas Arnis - especially espada y daga, which is always fun!

I was given some amazing gifts this week - a polyethylene espada y daga set, and some gorgeous wood training weapons from our friend Skip Todd down in Houston.

Last instructor's class. **sniffles**

I've already been hitting stuff with these bad boys.  Whoo!

The picture doesn't do them justice. Thank you so much, Skip!

BLOGGERY

Just so's you know, with moving week coming, I'll be working on pre-programming up re-runs of old posts, and there WON'T be a Stick Chicktivity post next weekend.  I will catch up with all y'all with some fresh stuff once I get to Kansas City!

OTHER MARTIAL ARTSY GOODNESS

Diemon Dave - the Hillbilly Ninja (I wrote about him here)  IS BACK!  Find him on Facebook HERE and HERE.  Video language is NSFW, warning.  But make time to watch them. You won't regret it.



Fascinating video on the Quarterstaff (posted at +Martial Arts by Coleman):


I have no words.




And I am so glad we get to wear shoes in Arnis much of the time.



LAST THOUGHTS:

I saw Deadpool 2 last weekend and I'm so happy.  Loved it.

Today my school hosts an awesome Kombatan seminar with GM Shelley Millspaugh of Kapitiran Mandirigma.  VERY excited for this one, folks!

If you're in the United States, it's a holiday weekend (Memorial Day is Monday).  Have a great one!
