"Kung Fu" means "hard work," and they're not kidding. I am super-sore tonight, from jogging, stances, weight work, more stances, kick practice, golden shield practice, more stances, and tonight's big milestone: my first night on the punching bag. My knuckles are a bit raw now, and may be bruised in the morning.
I don't remember if I mentioned, we have new students -- I'm not the newbie any more! And SiHing Williams (an advanced student who teaches the Friday night classes) told me tonight that my training was "looking good." I can see it, actually ... my stances are getting lower, my endurance is creeping up, and my ability to hold my arms straight out from my body while holding bricks is certainly improving. ;)
Oof; I'm worn out. Guess I'd better go to bed. G'nite, all!
