Not Much Here!

August 17, 2014

So it's the summer holidays. You probably guessed that my recent inactivity was down to me being all summery and visiting the outernet and doing things outside and having fun and stuff, right? Wrong. :p I've actually been spending a majority of my summer just relaxing and all of that fun stuff. I've been reading and playing video games and internetting and stuff. I've been out on my bike a few times on 10-15 mile bike rides, but that's about it, aside from the stuff I'm going to go over in this post!

So I've actually been focusing a lot more on Kuk Sool as I have been enjoying it a lot more over the past few months. I've been going in 3 hours before my class and assisting with the childrens' classes and I've felt that I'm benefiting a lot more from doing this as well as from my own class as well! We've had a lot more specialised classes focusing on certain aspects of Kuk Sool which we don't do as often as we do other things. The things include sparring, special sword techniques, additional material to work with out staffs and a lot more! I'd like to give a special that you to JDKJN Martin Ducker, my instructor and school owner, for arranging these classes which many of us have enjoyed! 
Another thing I have been focusing on a lot more in my own time is training at home, specifically with my weapons as I have always lagged behind in weapons training as I much prefer empty handed forms and techniques. I recently purchased a real sword from Kuk Sool which I have loved using and it's certainly been better to train with than the wooden one I have been using the past 5 years! I have been dedicating a lot of my time to training with my new sword and trying to improve my sword forms and, not only have I benefited in skill by doing this, I've also been enjoying doing all this extra practise, especially when the weather is nice!
Next week, there will be a Lowestoft and Halesworth Kuk Sool Won beach training session which I have been looking forward to for a long time now. I'll be sure to write a post about it when I get the time to do so!
