Juggling fail guy is how I feel. It also represents my muddled martial arts practice. Lately I’ve been lucky if I get to the gym twice, run twice, and stretch. I hope to spend a little more time on tai chi this weekend but we shall see.
Lots of balls being juggled at work, and, it’s my tradition to not blog about work. I will say that I’m about to start back up on an online certification program so from here until May I’ll be pretty darn busy.
In May one of my good friends is coming up for some trout fishing fun. He’s in a high-stress finance job and puts in as many hours as I do. The difference? Well my capitalist Republican friend does not work in higher education so this means that he makes six figures! Anyhow, we are fishing for three days and hiking for one. Better still, we hired a guide for 1.5 days of fishing. It’s pricey but the outfitter does everything: Teaches us how to use fly rods, provides the equipment, feeds us, and even takes the darn fish off the hooks for us! This one has been on both our bucket lists for a while and I’m finally in a place where I can do something about it.
I just need to make it to trout.
In the meantime I’ll continue to
steal draw your attention to interesting martial arts posts.
- Cook Ding links out to a movie called After the Rain. If you are into samurai movies then you might want to check his post out and track down the movie.
- An Honest Philosophy offers some good advice about criticizing other martial arts.
Stop shitting on other styles. Other systems. Before you spout off about why this teacher sucks, or that method is terrible, ask yourself…
