Tai Chi

My first Pilates, Yoga & Tai Chi. I needed to run 5k. I was shat on. What a day.

So I did my first Pilates, Yoga & Tai Chi class today!

It went well. I hope. I wobbled about, my balance sucks as much as my flexibility! 735 more words


Day 53 continued

I have always been a fan of formless/kata-less martial arts. Drills of technique are sufficient, and even better, than doing forms or katas. This is just my opinion, which is based on a time in the army when I practiced the carps tail/wrist blocks of Uechi Ryu quite a bit, and found myself using these techniques effectively in friendly sparring matches. 332 more words

Previously I wrote a post on Mortality.

This week I am reminded again of mortality particularly how the Grim Reaper can appear suddenly and whisk the living from this world.  161 more words

Tai Chi Y3D35: relaxation

I did my first qi gong form this morning, and found that I was having a hard time moving. It wasn’t that I was stiff and sore from anything yesterday. 235 more words
