Alicia, how did your class go?
CFMOSS, that's great. It's always nice to try something different.
Today we did mostly ground work, it was wonderful! We had so much fun, and I will be so sore tomorrow (that sore that says you got a great work out!).

I may not be there yet but I'm closer than I was yesterday.

I got tired of starting over and working back to where I was, so I have stopped giving up!

Eh, sorry to hear of your frustrations Alicia.
My class was fun last night, the brown and yellow belts worked with Sensei Sch last night, and we had a large number of white belts, they worked with Sensei C. Our head instructor was out last night but will hopefully be there Saturday, he's exhausted dealing with family, his mothers passing and work.
My oldest daughter (the just married one) made it to class last night, first time in a year, and I really hope she comes more regularly. Martial Arts is wonderful for about everything and what 18 year old doesn't need help with control emoticon

so annoyed...need to leave in 10 min for Class and have not heard from my head of school to let me know if i should go. I was told yesterday that there were no kids because of field trip. BUT he said he would call me this morning to let me know for sure!

CFMOSS - When you see someone who's been doing something for years demonstrating a technique, they always make it look so easy! Then you try it and go, "Wait..." Or at least that's what I do! But translating from seeing to do always comes eventually. :-)

Glad there's no break although sometimes that's more straight forward than the muscle things. Glad you had a good class!
I had a good small class last night - working onrefining technique - sometimes I'm slow to catch on - I have to figure out what I'm actually doing compared to what I see - the connection is sometimes rocky. But, I'm making progress - good thing.

Today I went to the doctor for my first TKD-related injury. Well, the first injury that was bad enough to actually send me to the doctor, I should say. I get bumps and bruises and mild strains all the time, and I'm pretty sure I broke my pinkie toe a while back accidentally kicking the bottom of the heavy bag... and there was the time I got whiplash practicing breakfalls...

Okay, so I'm a klutz. I'm getting better!

But back before Christmas my instructor was demonstrating a block and managed to hit the side of his wrist against the joint of my thumb. It hurt a lot, but after a few days the pain pretty much went away, except for some aching. But there's a bump on the joint now that does not exist on the other hand, and finally I figured I'd better get it checked out.

I got sent for an x-ray, but it shows no signs of fracture (or dislocation, I'm assuming) so I'm under instructions to call if it gets worse, but otherwise I'm scheduled to go back in 4 weeks to have it checked again. If it hasn't improved in 4 weeks, she'll probably refer me to an orthopedist for an expert opinion.

Fun times.

But class tonight was good. It was just me and my instructor, and I learned a bit more of my form, and I'm getting better at the parts that I learned last week that seemed impossible at the time, so other than having to be mindful of not slamming my right thumb against anyone else's bones, things are going pretty well!

Sounds like you are making a lot of progress CFMOSS, way to go!

Alicia, 18 new students is daunting! wow, that's a lot. I hope your instructors emergency is resolved quickly. $180 a month is pretty expensive, I don't think I'd pay that even if I had the money.
Good luck with tomorrow's classes, I hope you have fun.

I am looking forward to class tonight. The last few days especially, I'm feeling a lot stronger with more energy and stamina and I'm hoping to really kick it up tonight. Have a great day ladies!

Wow, went to class last night. It was run by different instructors as the main one was called out of town on an emergency! There were many people there to help which was good as tehre were 18 new white belts and MANY that nneeded a lot of attention! There was one boy that i (an toher adults) believe is Autistic....I wish parents would tell us these things and not just make us guess! He flipped out at being touched, he wanted to do what he wanted, he was very disruptive. BUT it is hard with 17 other new ones. It was a really long class. I am hoping the regular teacher is back next week. These ones also ran it different, and it was weird to me too! I was also looked at as an outsider in my own class!!

I went and worked out yesterday with a trainer. I liked him but i can not afford the training. It is $180 a month for just 1 time a week, $45 a session for 25 minutes!! YiKES!!

Well, can't wait for my other 2 classes tomorrow!!

Good workout last night. Making progress AND it's obvious that sensei has said those with black belts need to be upping the anty on my practice which is great (challenging too) And one of the neat things said last night from one of my black belt partners - sensei essentially gave permission for me to start practicing aikido (in other words to start putting all the pieces together instead of doing one at a time - that's progress!!!) got a lot ahead of me though.

How was everyone's first few days of 2013? New goals, plans, dreams?
I've been with a friend from the dojo over the weekend, she had her right shoulder rebuilt basically, and her bicep re-attached. Lots of girl talk, watching movies and just R&R, I feel pretty good. Have a great week ladies!
