My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 09/14/18

It's Friday!  Hooray!

Man, I can't believe it's almost time for fall. This year has gone by fast!

How was your week?

TRAINING

Had a new friend show up to the The Kansas City Presas Arnis Meetup, so we showed some of our basic stuff to get him going, then we worked on "stick capture" with block-check-counter.  Very fun day!

The National Football League started this week, and I got the pleasure of my beloved Kansas City Chiefs beating division rival LA Chargers on the road.  Great way to start the season!

In Karate (well, kobudo), I'm still working on the first bo form. Since the weather has been spectacular here in KC, it was really nice to spend the the early evening swinging the lumber.  My current studies are a perfect example of how different groups can see things different ways, and I'm working hard to understand and do things the "new" way.

I'm working on a project I'm not ready to share yet, but here's a still of me in my "Armory":




BLOGGERY

Another weird week where the fresh post published on Wednesday ended up being different than what I originally planned.


Not only can you make sure you don't miss a post by finding us on social media, but you'll find lots of cool martial arts content (especially on Facebook)! The Stick Chick Blog is on Google PlusFacebookMeWeTumblr, and Twitter!

OTHER MARTIAL ARTSY GOODNESS

The second most common phrase said to a kid's martial arts class is "Tie your belt!"



There are TONS of these parody memes of the Nike ad with Colin Kaepernick out there (the one with the Swedish Chef from the Muppets is genius) but here some from two of my favorite martial arts instructors.  First up, Master Ken:



And then Diemon Dave.



Finally, here's a nice video about the FMA's as a whole.  Sweet.



I'm always finding cool stuff that I share almost exclusively to The Stick Chick Blog on Facebook, so please do like and follow and share that bad boy with your friends. Thanks!

LAST THOUGHTS:

"Indian Summer" is kicking this weekend, but soon my favorite season - autumn - is going to kick in, months earlier than I've experienced it for the last 12 years.  I am still so happy to be home in Kansas City.

I actually have a thing I'm doing this weekend that I'll tell y'all about next week.

SO, practice makes perfect, so I expect everyone to be out there getting perfect!  Have a fantastic weekend!
