Hi, ladies!

Just finished my "widow week". My other half travels one week out of each month. It's always tough.

Sounds like we all worked hard in martial arts this week. Yay! We worked a lot on forms and combinations using basic techniques. It's amazing how we all develop short cuts and bad habits and then have to fix them to get a combination correct.

Also working on my next Taegeuk form. I have decided that I don't like Taegeuk because they are so similar to each other that it is hard to develop muscle memory to help differentiate them. I have to be so focused and completely present and I still mix up the moves from form to form. Argh! Palgwe forms were so much easier!

Did a double class this morning. Black Belt Club was about what to do if someone pins you against a surface like a wall or pole or parked car. Great class. It was so practical, so intense, and still such fun. I just got my uniform out of the wash and had to throw it right back in. I was soaked to the skin and my sparring gear stank like a men's locker room. Pew!

Have a great Saturday, all!
Chellie

Change is hard. Be persistent.

Good class last night, we touched on a lot of material that I've been wanting to work emoticon and I got a great work out.
I mentioned before that I've got coworkers that have tried the class I think. One of them, C, had a mohawk that the kids we see at work loved. Apparently he was at a gym and a gay man asked him about hair product and what he'd recommend. C was so put off he shaved his head, spent all day yesterday in the back office going on about how gross and horrible it was but would have been fine if it was a 'hot chick' or 'hot lesbian'.
C has been to couple classes and we have 2 gay men and 1 lesbian woman in class. For 2 weeks he's given me excuses about not going to class, telling me he loved the classes, they were so much fun but family matters were interfering.
After yesterday, I'm certain he hasn't come back because he's 'afraid' of working with the gay men and that's fine. Our class, like most, is not about gender or sexual orientation, it's about martial arts and if he doesn't get that, he won't get far, fine.
I gave him a heavy weight gi after his first class, and I would like it back. Should I ask? If so, how?

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!

Getting older blows for sure but we get older faster when we are inactive, keep kicking tail!

Made it to adult class last night. Small group, but one of the youth brown belts stayed. We worked on kata and building your own applications out of the kata.

Good luck Alicia! We have some instructors coming to visit from the states soon, for the same reason. Class tonight was fantastic, as usual. We did mostly throws and I am super sore, very tired. Have a great day tomorrow ladies!

A little more than an hour early but I'm not certain I'll be able to start the thread tomorrow, working very early to late.

Happy mother's day to all mom's, regardless of where you are and when you celebrate.

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