Another awesome session at PHDefence today – Paul did some work standing up, and I did some work lying down. All in all, it was great fun and even better training! There’s talk still of PHDefence moving to Friday nights, which is looking increasingly certain as the only viable option they have, so get in touch with Paul or me to let us know what you think. I don’t think he’s planning to change anything before 2012 though.
PHDefence is cancelled next week because nobody can make it, which is a real shame, but it’s back on the week after so it’s not on Saturday the 3rd, and it is on Saturday the 10th. Bring your friends, family and random people you meet! PHDEFENCE NEEDS MORE STUDENTS!
Yes, you’ve got homework! I’m going to see who of you reads these updates with this as well which will be funny. You have the following things to do for the next session:
– Everyone needs to have a try at the first Wing Chun Form (Xĭu Līm Tào – 小念头) for next time. Blue sashes have no excuse – you need to have more than a try because you’ll need it for your next grading! Anyone who can remember the name gets bonus awesome points. Now for some individual things:
– S.S: You need to, assuming your back’s ok, show me one full pushup. Just one.
– G.C: You need to show me some real aggression on the pads. You did it before, so I know you can do it again. Stop being so nice!
– B.S. and L. (sorry, I don’t know your second name so I can’t properly initial you but you know who you are!) have the same objective – stop being so easily distractible! You need to learn to focus. Be warned – next time you two lose focus I have an exercise for you that will help! You won’t like it much though, so this is your warning!
Sorry for the initials but I don’t feel right putting your names on properly with you being kids.
If anyone needs a copy of the guides or has any questions, get in touch.
If anyone wants some training in the meantime, or at any other time, don’t forget where I am! If there’s something you just don’t get, or you just want to make up for lost time, or you just want more training, then let me know and I’ll do whatever I can for any of you. Chuck me an email.
Now here’s the real test to see who’s been reading. Next time, I’m going to ask for the secret code, which is: ‘WEIRD BEARD’ – anyone who can’t tell me this code will have extra warmup! [insert evil laugh here]
Until next time,
