so we went kung fu fiiigh ting….

It started of learning movements and then how the movements helped with self defence.

So far, so good.

At the end there were exercises.

One was crouching, then putting your hands on the floor, then moving your right leg over to the left, whilst crouching and then the same with the other leg.

In our case it was dragging the leg over the other side, if you can!

The others made it look so easy.  They did it twenty times.

I was lucky if I managed to drag my legs maybe six times!  lol

Wow, we have a ways to go to get that one sorted.

I can feel some muscles that clearly havent been used before for quite some time, if at all!.

So we will do the months trial and see how we go.

It will be great for our fitness!

Has anyone else done any kung fu or other martial art?


fencing on friday

A couple of weeks ago we started doing a 1o week beginners fencing class.  Just to do something different and get ourselves off the couch.

It is fun, but also a little frustrating, only because Im still learning.

It is definitely good for fitness.  It is really hot in the outfits, so  I sweat a lot and burn over 1,000 calories per two hour session.

bf is better at it than I am. The teacher says shorter people have better speed (bf)  and taller people (like me) have to rely on our reach.

Ive never been really good at any sport.

I think Im a bit unco, so have to get it in my head that this is just for fun and it doesnt matter if I get beaten, as I am only a beginner.
