Martial Arts

My adventures as a middle aged martial artist.

Tai Chi Chuan

I overcame inertia and a sinus infection, and made it to Tai Chi class.

I always enjoy the class, and feel good afterwards,

but it seems to be hard to go out of the house during the winter!

PS: The picture is not me, but he has great form!

So to catch up…

On Monday evening, I went to my cello lesson.  My teacher is very patient…he knows that I’m not purposefully hurting his ears!

Last night, Joe and I went to Tang Soo Do class.  (Another patient teacher!)  He showed us some wrestling things, in addition to a good warm up, and working on our forms and one-steps.  He keeps things interesting by teaching us things from a lot of different martial arts: jiu-jitsu, krav maga, escrima, bo staffs…we did some tai chi last week.

This evening, I practiced cello, and now I’m checking in with you.

Thanks for all the nice comments and likes!

I’m staring at a pile of paper next to the laptop here, trying to forget that I still need to do the stupid taxes.  Blah…

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  It was a beautiful sunny day.  The boys and I raked leaves and cut grass this morning.  I practiced cello for a while earlier (see picture below)…need to do some more.

I also need to order a couple of Tang Soo Do books, that show the forms and one-steps.  I can’t remember things from one class to the next.  That’s the downside of martial arts for the “more seasoned”!

We went to a Puerto Rican restaurant this evening.  Really good!  I practiced the cello before dinner, and I’ll practice some more later.  I didn’t have cello class this week, so I want to practice as much as I can, to keep from falling behind.

The library book I’m reading right now, “Notes from a Small Island” by Bill Bryson, is pretty funny.  You should read it!
