My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 08/31/18


Wait, it's the end of AUGUST already? Wow!

Even though I spent a couple of days fighting off a nasty illness of some sort, my week overall was pretty cool.

How was yours?

TRAINING

We spent a really nice Saturday morning at the The Kansas City Presas Arnis Meetup working on reviewing policing techniques, x-pattern sinawali, and we wrapped it up with our defensive responses.  Good day of training!

Monday I woke up with some sort of illness and I spent Monday AND Tuesday fighting it off.  No fun, kids.

But I got better by Wednesday, so FINALLY I could re-join karate class and get a lot of bo work in, which is always fun.

Thursday, thanks to a friend, we were able to attend the final preseason game of the Kansas City Chiefs.  It was a fantastic night and we won!  Yay!  It doesn't count, but still, yay!  It was Younger Daughter's first trip to Arrowhead and she had a blast!

X-Pattern Sinawali variant.

BLOGGERY

Weird week.  Two fresh posts but no #tbt on Thursday (I was swamped that day, y'all).


Absolutely, you CAN find Stick Chick Blog on most social media platforms. Check us out on Google PlusFacebookMeWeTumblr, and Twitter!

OTHER MARTIAL ARTSY GOODNESS

I can't resist a good Chuck Norris joke.


I've been getting into stick arts of the world lately, and it's fascinating how often they're found in a mixture of dance, ritual, religious significance, and stick fighting.   Here's a cool one from Trinidad (Kalinda/Calinda).  I'd love to know the rules for this...


Well, this is... a thing. What do you guys think about it?




If you haven't liked The Stick Chick Blog on Facebook you are SO missing out!  So if you do Facebook, get on over there!

LAST THOUGHTS:

It's a holiday weekend here in the US, and it's also Younger Daughter's birthday. So there will be lots of training and baking and whatnot going on in the Chickie household.

Be good, train hard, and have fun!
