Reminiscing

A flash of a scent and I’m right back there.

Watching Gung-Fu movies.  Shaolin Temple.  Tai Chi Master.  36 Chambers.  Ghost Dog.

The scent of the shops in Chinatown. The heavy herbal combinations in the bins. The taro milkshake with pearls AKA bubble tea.

The little kids running amok in their traditional Gung-Fu uniforms. The private demos. The dreams, the aspirations of becoming…something.

Sunday Morning

Working out.  Working in.  Working inside out.  Working outside in.

F*ck Training

Posted in Martial Arts and Training with tags on August 30, 2013 by ctkwingchun

My fam got back so fuck training this week.  I’ve been staying up late and sleeping in late – waking up with just enough time to make it to work.  I might train next week, but probably not because I’m going to spend more time with my fam.

I might stretch, though.

Go It Alone

No one showed up this AM. Was expecting one person, but they late canceled with good reason.

Sick last few days and bummy knee.  Lots of vitamin D, vitamin C, gargling with oil of oregano and salt.  Lots of self-acupuncture as well.  However, after a few days of being down, it’s highly beneficial to finally get one’s body moving again.  Fever, sweats and sore throat?  Work out hard for a short interval.  Cold chills and body aches?  Work out slow at a slightly medium interval.

Today: skipping 15 minutes, bag 30 minutes, solo rolling and solo shrimping.

Nuff Said

If you’re not angry at something, someone or some situation when hitting the heavy bag,

you’re wasting valuable extra potential.

Every time, I don’t leave it up to fate whether my heavy bag is dead or not.

Triple S

Posted in Martial Arts and Training with tags , , , on October 14, 2012 by ctkwingchun

First, there was Remembering SEF.

Now, there’s the Triple S.

This morning, the two gents that came over drilled Wing Chun techs in the Chi Sau – the more useful ones if you will: Tan, Fok, Bong, Pak and Jum.  When drilled, it is important to keep the Triple S in mind.

Slow – Slow it down, as to not get so excited and overstimulated.

Smooth – Make it smooth, not so jerky.

Stay in the pocket – Two trains on the same track.  Stay with your partner.

We can play Chi Sau so many different ways: head shots only, body shots only, pretending to be drunk, etc.  I like the Triple S for drilling techs.  Then we can let ‘er fly.

Make it yours, CTK
