Monday - Back To Basics

Today the wifey and I are going back to basics to better prepare her for her Level I. We're doing a simple 30 minutes a day to go over a section or two making sure that she has the material down, that we refine her movements, and slowly try to work out any mistakes that we see. Our goal is to try to do this daily until she feels confident on all of the material.

Just like any practice we started out with the Warriors Salute. The difference this time was instead of her just going through the motions I had her try to explain what the movements mean. We went over it a few times to make sure she had it down.

After that we went over 1-12 of 64 Stick Form and Basic Defenses. The main thing she needed to clean up was her foot work on defenses. So we went over the drill several times to try to clean things up. This was a bit challenging due to space restraints and our little one running around us, but we got through it. Then we went over ranges and basic strikes using both hands.

So it was a short and sweet practice. You don't need to do hours at a time to train even though having that option would allow you to absorb the material faster. But it's enough to slowly get it to stick. I'm going to go over a couple of things for Level II before I call it a night. Till tomorrow, have a good one and happy training. ItsYoBoyFlex and I'm out.
