Martial Art Injuries. I have had 3 martial art injuries so far in my martial art career. I call this phase Pain, Strength, Endurance, Survival, and Persistence. Because I am a fighter. Martial Art Flashback.
Working With Weapons, The Staff. The very first weapon I ever held in my hands was a staff, which is a long wooden bamboo stick in which you do forms with and also spar with in Sil-Lum Kung-Fu. Martial Art Flashback.
Karate, My First Martial Art Class Ever. Karate, my first martial art class ever – an accomplishment rather ironic but humorous I find as I write this post. Martial Art Flashback.
How I Got Into Martial Arts. One of my bosses I worked with at my undergraduate school got me into martial arts. He said that he thought I would like it. I started in 2002 in Boone, N.C., at the Blue Ridge Kung-fu Arnis Academy. Martial Art Flashback.
My Favorite Martial Art Weapon of Choice. When I first started my martial art training in Sil-Lum Kung-Fu in 2002, the first weapon I was trained in was the staff. The second form of weapon I was trained in was with wooden blades – using the real thing can kill somebody, and that was not the intention in martial art class. Martial Art Flashback.
Side Hair Grab with Scissors Takedown. This takedown may sound complicated but it isn’t really. It’s all in the legs. My favorite part of Sil-Lum Kung-Fu classes were the kicks, because I love to kick. Martial Art Flashback.
