In a slump....

I guess it's bound to happen....this week I've been on super low energy ...missed my two hr. Monday evening class which started the downward spiral, ate ice cream, slept in air conditioning, woke up in pain and sore throat.....forced myself to class Tuesday and felt better..but today I slugged around all day...

I hate when I get in this mode, don't feel like training, over eating, and feeling tired!!! Surrendering to the laziness.....MUST GET TO CLASS TOMORROW!!!!! I'm not sure if I can go… Continue

I'm moving up - but not in Hapkido!

I just got my green belt in Hakko Denshin-Ryu Jujitsu (straight from white belt to green, bypassing yellow and orange), and a yellow belt with two stripes in Matsumura Shorin-Ryu Kenpo karate.
