A Happy Snowy Friday from Kansas City, friends!
One of the reasons I moved north was to get four distinct seasons, and man, I haven't been disappointed!
How's your week been?
We had a new member of the Kansas City Presas Arnis Meetup show up on Saturday, so I worked with him on the 12 Angles of Attack from Modern Arnis, and also taught him single sinawali. He caught on really fast and I'm sure he's going to be a great addition to our group.
I had a short family trip up to Nebraska and back Saturday night, and on the way back, I got a really painful migraine. Luckily the meds I have blasted it out of my system, but I was in postdrome - aka "Migraine Hangover " - for the next two days, so I didn't go to karate on Monday. However, I've been working on the forms we're studying with Mr. Chick at home, so when I went to class Wednesday, I got my forms fine-tuned by my teacher so I haven't lost much ground. The only downside is that it's getting dark so early we can't work on weapons outside like we have been doing for half the class.
As I noted at the beginning of today's post, it lightly snowed here in Kansas City last night. I love it!
Monday: Three is a Magic Number
Tuesday: Little Details: Strike Mechanics
Wednesday: In the Elements
Thursday: Shenanigans: Your Martial Art (and Mine)
Note: ANY links to the old blog published before 10/10/18 that you run across online are now broken. They're as viable as that Halloween pumpkin you've left on your porch for the last couple of weeks.
OTHER NEATO BURRITO STUFF
Hey, to my generation, Miss Piggy was a role model!
Yeah, I go to a lot of seminars. But I am pretty sure I would have skipped this one.
There's even a KILLFACE in there!
More proof that NFL players train in the martial arts.
My beloved Kansas City Chiefs won again and are now 9-1. I've been a fan for the better part of nearly three decades, and this might be our best season I've personally witnessed. It's fun.
YES, it's cold and YES, we're still on for the Meetup this weekend, so if you're in the area, meet us in Happy Rock Park!
Have fun, stay safe, and train hard, y'all!
