My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 04/23/21
Today is Mr. Chick's birthday, so y'all wish him a good one!
At the Kansas City Presas Arnis Meetup, we worked on the first pre-determined right on right tapi-tapi pattern.
We've been leading up to this with training a lot of the individual elements, so they caught on immediately. It was a very successful class!
Over at Elite Dragon, we have several new students, so we are working through the defensive responses for the next few classes, starting with #1 (same side block-and-strike, or as it's called in Kombatan - I think - "System 1"). We emphasize the feeding is as important as the defending, so everyone got in a lot of great work. Very productive class!
Tuesday: Style Wars vs. Fraud Busting
Wednesday: What Are Words For?
Thursday: Balancing the (Martial Arts) Force
Come join us on our MeWe page, on Tumblr and Pinterest! There is a Facebook page, but I'm no longer updating it, because as the likes went up, the reach and engagement went down. Not worth the effort if Facebook is going to show people who liked my page advertisements for junk versus my blog posts.
I have started sharing them to my personal FB account, so if we're friends there, maybe you'll see a stray post in your feed once in a while, in-between the ads and the... uh... ads.
COME TRAIN WITH ME!
My teacher, Mark Lynn, will be teaching three kobudo forms at Elite Dragon on Friday, May 14 and Saturday, May 15. Of course I'll be there. He's going to join us at the Kansas City Presas Arnis Meetup on Sunday, May 16, as well, and we plan to train until we just can't any more that day!

Today I get my 2nd COVID shot. Hope that I'm one of the lucky ones who don't get any big-time reaction, because I have THINGS TO DO.
Younger daughter is in her first tournament on Sunday - it's just an in-school tournament, but still - and I'm happy she is participating. So y'all send some positive karate vibes her way on Sunday, will ya? Thanks.
Y'all stay safe, have fun, and keep training!
