The weekend will start warming up, which should resolve the ice problem, so class is back on!
Friday we will work on our legs. Front stance, sitting stance and kicks.
Saturday will be arms with pull ups, push ups, knife hand strikes, and lots of punches!
Sunday we will do core, with sit ups and leg ups.
I’ll give a stripe to any student who can hang upside down by only their feet.
I’ll give a stripe to any student who can do that and touch their toes five times.
I’ll give a stripe to any adult (who isn’t a black belt) if they run 1/2 mile in less than 3 minutes, 30 seconds.
I’ll give a stripe to any kid that can run the 1/2 mile circuit in under 4 minutes.
Still ice covering enough to worry me. No class today!
Regrettably, surfaces are still covered in ice. This means we can’t climb, we can’t kick, we can’t run. Just too dangerous folks!
Trees look like this. That makes it really hard to do obstacles! I’ll update tomorrow regarding Saturday class. Stay off the roads, stay warm. Watch for ice!
It’s cold. Wet. Icy! Tell me who is coming!
Let me know who intends to practice! If census is low, I might do what the schools did and cancel Friday. We do a lot of work on surfaces at are slick. I don’t want my students to end up looking like something from Game of Thrones.
The temperature on Friday will be between 18 and 15 degrees fahrenheit, with no sun! If you are coming to class, please dress warmly with a coat, gloves, a hat, and maybe even extra socks. If you are not coming, please comment on facebook, send me a message, or text me! Please!
Otherwise, we will start class with a run to stay as warm as possible, stretches with challenges thrown in, and some fast-paced drills and sparring.
I will be contacting the parks department also this month, regarding a building. Hopefully it goes well!
Due to three variables, class will have to be cancelled Friday.
Firstly, your instructor has holiday plans with the family that had to be rescheduled due to working on Christmas.
Secondly, it will be frigidly cold…after dark….which is a great recipe for frostbite, and frozen students. Students take a remarkably long time to thaw, and most parents would prefer to have their kids defrosted for new years eve. They don’t fit in the microwave either.
Other news: 2018 may bring us a building. I’ll be in contact with the Parks Department regarding a potential at the start of the year.
Remember, Sunday (new year’s eve) is still canceled, but Saturday is still on!
