Learning a dagger form

 I was looking forward to my Kung Fu class this morning because I was going to learn a new form — the first one since I started teaching more.

I didn’t get to it right away.  After our warmup, I taught a section of Ching Kang to two of the 1st browns.  The form is fairly demanding physically compared to what they were used to as 2nd browns, so I had them do 2 different drills to learn the moves.

Then I went through 3rd Black Tiger with one of the other 1st Blacks who needed to learn the form.  It was good for me, because I got some clarification on some moves that had confused me.

Then we learned the dagger form — swallow swoops down?  I’m not sure what its name is, but it was really easy and short.  I practiced a little at home with a butter knife, because I don’t have a dagger of my own.

 My nutrition was a little off today because of a planned lunch out with the producers at Trudy’s.  I ate spinach quesadillas with mushrooms.  I was not hungry for the afternoon snacks I packed.  Tonight, Andy made cheese omelets with avocado and asparagus on the side.  Yum!
