    I taught a series of half guard sweeps from the knee shield position. Everyone was working the technique really well, and I felt pretty good about it.

    After drilling and before sparring, all three guys told me it was already one of their go to moves.

    *sob*

    Sometimes. It's no big deal. In Chinese shifu/sifu can mean many things, like "instructor" or "tutor" or "father" or "master" (as opposed to apprentice, as in learning a trade) or even "boss".

    It's more colloquial in Chinese and doesn't carry quite the same formality as "sensei" does in Japanese. There are other Chinese terms like "daih shifu" (great master) that are more formal. .

    And yes my sifu is a freaking riot sometimes. I asked him to please show me the #36th method on Tuesday, even if it angers the Abbot.

    I can't share it with any of you, under penalty of exile from the Temple.

    Today, I experienced a miracle. I got punched in the nose pretty hard, and it didn't immediately start bleeding everywhere. This might seem trivial, but I'm one of those pussies who starts bleeding everywhere if I sneeze a little bit too vigorously. Is this a sign that there is yet hope for me in this sport?

    Internal bleeding? :-)





    Also, Vieux, who is the dark haired chick on the cover of the Please yourself album?

    In Judo, we did the usual warm-up. Running, push ups, shrimping, and stretching etc. Then did moving uchikomis, mostly o soto gari for me with a couple koshi guruma thrown in. I left a bit early due to work being earlier this morning.

    My Hung Gar Sifu does that too, Sifu is pretty much just like a nickname at this point with him besides a title. I forget his real name sometimes. "Whats good witchu' Sifu?"

    On Thursday I boxed. Lots of shadow boxing then about 8 or 9 rounds on the heavy bag alternating holding and boxing on it with a partner... pad work - basic two pieces, jab-hook, jab-cross-hook and mixing it up. Feels good to be back to MAs after graduating college last week.

    Si fu is shorter than "Kung fu daddy".
