Practice with my park kung fu student continues to go well! If anything it’s a reminder that during the five years I practiced in NYC, I learned A LOT. Yet still I’m painfully aware of all that I still had yet to learn when I had to leave. I continue to meet more people in the park who see me there every morning and approach me to either ask questions or say that what I’m doing looks very pretty.

Like I said, I bought a pad to practice kicks with which I’m excited about both from a practice and teaching stand point. Funny because when I was in NYC I’d kind of dread the days we did pads because I’d always get super tired and would worry about doing well. Now the pressure is off somewhat since I’m the one doing the teaching, but there’s internal pressure on myself to set the bar.
