In keeping with the spirit of Thanksgiving, I want to express my thanks to Cikgu and Joel for all the years of instruction and friendship. Thanks! 

Class 11/22/08

Class today was good. We worked on a lot of the basics. Golonggan 1-10, 1-21, 1-41, blocking, basic self defense and escapes, leg sweep drills. The more I train, the more I see how every time I do 1-21 it changes the way I view what we do. Each time, something changes: stance, balance, intensity... Each time there is a lesson, it's not just mindless repitition. It helps with muscle memory, it helps you to see things in a different way. The basics are ALWAYS important, they are your foundation. Without a good foundation the structure crumbles.
