Peaceful, Easy Feeling

I haven’t been this kung fu happy since my tournament win!  Earlier today I had a glorious ninety minutes in a wide open, dimly-lit, scented-candle-smelling yoga room with a wall of mirrors on one side.  I would have stayed longer if I didn’t have to deliver my daughter to a birthday party.  It’s probably good that I had the obligation on the calendar to keep me from overdoing it.

It was the most relaxed but intensive, high-quality practice session I’ve had since the last time I was allowed to practice in the open space during sanshou class.  My first use of a gym membership that’s also free for the first month, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with my choice.  I not only have freedom of movement, but the floors are so much better on my joints that I was able to execute jumps just as well at end of my training session as I had at the beginning – something that is never true at the guan.

Next move is the introduction to the program director to see about teaching.  I have a good feeling that a return to teaching is imminent.  In the meantime, preparation for the tournament two weekends away is very much back on track!
