25th April 2023, you’re a math wiz Harry!

Over the last couple of months, I’ve been on my own. Now, that’s never a bad thing in my mind because I get to work on something that would probably bore someone else to tears.

Bruce Lee made a comment one time about not fearing the man that practised 10000 kicks, but the man who had practised 1 kick 10000 times. And it’s all about that practice time, working on the basics, just drilling drilling drilling. So for me, that’s been going up and down the hall practising my strikes with sword, hanbo, and bo etc 1000 times each.

If my sensei was watching, they’d probably be cringing at my form, but you can really feel it when the steps land strong and the swing feels good. I have a blockers/kick shield that I set up for practise hits, so I do know that the weapon won’t bounce out of my hand.

To keep me honest, I’ve screenshot the logs and have put them up of the groups’ FB page, hence the joke from someone about maths instead of martial arts. Well, if this is what seems to be working, I’ll keep logging, and next week, it’s onto the thing I absolutely detest….rolls.
