Here's how my week of training, writing, teaching, and miscellaneous Filipino Martial Arts-y goodness went.
What have you
been up to this week?WHAT I DID THIS WEEK:
Friday I trained much of the day, then that evening Older Daughter and I went to see one of my favorite bands, Flogging Molly, over in Dallas. Great show, but by the end of the day I'd been standing about 10 hours, 2 of which were barefoot on wood floors, and I was crippled the next day.
In Kobudo we started learning our first kama form and we spent half the class helping the new juniors class with their bo form. I'm really grooving on kama - it's another weapon that's very... arnis-y... and easy to pick up from my point of view.
Monday was Arnis class at Hidden Sword, Tuesday I took Younger Daughter to taekwondo class, Wednesday was more Arnis, Thursday more Takewondo...
A little busier than last week.

OTHER STUFF THAT I SAW/DID:
I post a mere fraction of the stuff I run across here on the blog's Saturday roundup. Most of it is on The Stick Chick Blog on Facebook
, so if you follow my page, you'll get ALL SORTS of martial arts goodness in your feed (make sure set it to Following, See First in News Feed so you don't miss out on the fun!). This week was particularly busy with good stuff, so go check it out.
Speaking of Facebook, if you're a female martial arts blogger (or know one), we've started a new group to help share each's others posts and support each other. Check it out: Women of the Martial Arts Blogosphere
And also, we've set a date for MAPA 13, which will be the last one I attend for the foreseeable future. Come join us: Event for MAPA 13 in Dallas
The phrase "You own too many martial arts weapon" makes no sense at all, in any language:
I am loving this new meme.
FINAL THOUGHTS OF THE WEEK:
Today is a "normal" day - I'm going to practice some kobudo in a morning, and go to Arnis class. Tonight is the annual AKATO
banquet, and I'll be going to that tonight.
Hope you've having a wonderful St.Patrick's Day!
