This morning there was a threat of rain to dampen things for Sunday Group Practice, however come rain or what be, we were going to meet! If need be, a couple of us were ready to practice in the rain (albeit cold rain would have not been fun), LOL! Fall has arrived at our "Luneta" (Heritage) Park and we were greeted with cloudy skies and a brisk cool morning which helped us open warm ups with a quick 5 lap run around the basketball courts, mixing it up with varied laps of regular run, zig zags, reverse, and laterals. Practice was more or less the same as least week, although no knife tapping today. Picking up from 6 count siniwali, we tried our hand at 6 count sambrada and working our way to a flow drill based on this.
How are we doing...? Two months in and with a steady count of at least 10 participants on average, we are overall still learning to crawl, but every week we strive towards that expected level. We'll get there as we get more familiar and comfortable with the skills. While we develop the physical aspects of the art we are inspired to learn, personally I enjoy the camaraderie developing , like any other group organization a bond and unity is formed and develops and this to is coming into fruition for our small club. While today was another good day of practice and great to see our regulars, I end today's blog with a quote to inspire....
"If you want to go into the martial arts
don't do it unless you want to become
better than the others.
You must practice, practice, practice.
