My Week in Stick Chicktivity - 05/21/21


Strap in and let's go!


TRAINING:


My teacher, Mark Lynn at Hidden Sword Martial Arts, was in town over the weekend, so my entire weekend was all about training.


First up, he taught some forms he'd learned for bo, double stick (Okinawan version) and kama at Elite Dragon Martial Arts.


Long time readers know I'm not a big forms person, but I enjoyed the process of learning all of those (and I got myself some new training kama to boot, so that's gonna be a good weekend for yours truly no matter what!). In fact, the bo form I found super-interesting and I think I'm going to practice that one for myself.


Sunday we spent all day training in Arnis at the Kansas City Presas Arnis Meetup. We worked on a number of drills related to right on right tapi tapi, some Balintawak drills, and a few other things. It was a long day of exploration and nerdy goodness.


Monday, we were back at Elite Dragon, where we taught that group the drill from Balintawak and we all had a great time.


Very fun, very productive, both in a martial arts sense, and in a "how we're going to teach martial arts in Kansas City" sense.

Come join us on our MeWe page, on Tumblr and Pinterest! The Facebook page is not being updated, but if we're friends on FB, you might see me post something there once in a while on my personal page.


You wanna go to MeWe, because every Sunday I post a funny meme, like I used to on Facebook. YOU WANT FUNNY MEMES IN YOUR LIFE.


DOING STUFF:


If you're interested in the Oyata lineage of Okinawan Kempo, you gotta attend this virtual seminar this weekend. Link is HERE.



Meet me (and Mr. Chick) at this awesome seminar in Nashville, TN! Learn more and register HERE.



We (Kindred Protective Arts and Elite Dragon Martial Arts) are hosting Bruce Chiu of Arnis International (on Facebook HERE and on Instagram HERE) in June!



You can learn more at the Facebook event HERE, the MeWe event HERE, and the Meetup HERE. We can't wait to host this event, so please join us!


If you can't make it to Missouri on the last weekend in June, perhaps you can make it to the Progressive Arnis Spring Camp in North Carolina? Details HERE.


I've also booked my flight to attend the World Modern Arnis Alliance Remy Presas Memorial Camp in August (event on Facebook HERE).


FRIDAY THOUGHTS:


Our weekends have been booked up a lot lately, so this weekend, I'm going to settle down and do some chorin' and some work for Kindred Protective Arts. We'd been sort of roadblocked on a few things, but Mark's visit cleared a lot of that up.


Y'all stay safe, have fun, and keep training!
