My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 02/12/21


BRRRRR! It's too cold to just stand here, let's jump in! I got two weeks to cover, so no time to waste.


TRAINING:


In the Kansas City Presas Arnis Meetup, we've been working on drills that will get us to playing tapi-tapi. That's been a lot of two vs. one drills that bring in various inserts, block-check-counter, and the like.


At Elite Dragon, we promoted several people to their new ranks, and we're excited that we'll be starting a new unit on staff (ditto in the Meetup, so both classes will be working on nearly identical material for the next few months).


I wrote this week about attending the Progressive Arnis Winter Camp over the weekend (see "Back to Staff" below). I admit it was probably the most physical work I've done in maybe a year. I have the blisters and the aches and pains to prove it, but wow, did I have fun and my mind is just a'buzz.


Old friends and new - and look, I'm not the only woman!

Speaking of aches and pains, I learned that I'm not 100% healed on the hip that got replaced in November - not by a long shot - and while I've been in physical therapy for my right shoulder, I still have a long way to go on that one, too.


But at least it's not just a shrug and "getting old sucks, so suck it up, buttercup!", so I'll take it!

Oh, I'll show you a move, all right.



FRIDAY THOUGHTS:


Well, my beloved Chiefs fell in the Super Bowl to the Buccaneers, but I'm still proud of my guys. Now that the season is over, my Sundays are freed up a bit to take on the amount of staff work I want to add into our curriculum, and that's pretty darn exciting!


Y'all stay WARM (we're hitting record lows this weekend in Kansas City), keep safe, have fun, and keep training.
