Just got done with very early-morning T'ai Chi. It's still slow-motion posing with very limited combat applicability, but you know what? It's a good stretch and wellness thing, and that's just about perfect right now. Now that I think about it, if you sped a lot of it _up_ but still maintained that balance of soft and hard, it might not totally suck out on the street.

Flight students - we're going to review some film today. Forge, make sure you bring in that new batch of film you took - I want the winged folks to analyze their flight patterns.

Arabic students - review class today. I expect you all to come to class with questions, since judging by the last set of quiz grades there must be a lot of things that don't make much sense.

Shiro: I'm going to have to put the active part of our class on hold for now. I still expect to see you in the Gym at 8PM sharp, but it's going to be solo work for a time. Sorry, man. Make it up to you once my back heals a little more? Should only be a week or two.

X-Men Trainees: Email in your inboxes shortly with a curriculum and where you can acquire a little light reading. I'm available for questions, or you can pester Scott, Hank, Sam, or Ororo. They've all had the material you'll be learning, so pick their brains, people.

You mean that I get to skip my weekly beating this once? Damn it. (That's not sarcasm, by the way. I tolerate the abuse I suffer in the name of education.)

Tolerate it?

That would be why you leave the lessons with a big ol' smile on your face every time, right?

And, you know, if you'd forget all your fancy posing and just concentrate on _what worked_ you wouldn't be getting those beatings quite so often.

You've got a good foundation and you're quick and strong, but there's a lot of crap to undo.

Salaam,
Haroun

Can't you just feel my excitement every day? It's so tangible that it's sentient.

Converting from jujitsu, where posturing is part of the act, to krav maga which is "beat the living hell out of anything and everything you see" is still taking some getting used to.

Heh. When your back is better, I will show you sped up Tai Chi. ;)

*nudges*

Stiiiiicks.

Fine.

I'll see you in class tonight. Same time as Shiro's - no reason we can't start a little segment on the proper use of levers.

Class rules:

1) Be on time, or don't show up at all
2) Be warmed up and ready to go by the time class starts
3) Do what I tell you.


Salaam,
Haroun

Good!

Looking forward to it. I'm very very curious about this.

could I come for tai chi too?

not the fast version though, I'm still learning the introduction moves.

I'm not teaching Ta'i Chi

I'm just a student.

Ask Alison, she's the one organizing this whole thing.

But offhand, I'd have to say that it is likely not a problem.

Haroun

:) I meant for practicing what I've learned, not for learning new things.

I miss track.

If you're asking me...

if I'd like to work out in t'ai chi and refine the grip on the material I already have, my answer is a qualified yes. I'll need to touch base with Medical to see what constitutes overtraining - I'm trying to recover from a nagging back problem, and thus am supposed to be taking it easy.

Salaam,
Haroun

Practice...

I tend to practice every morning in the gym, to review in general. :) Students are welcome three days a week for that, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 7am, specifically.

I keep a few sessions to myself with the other mornings though, to work over more advanced Forms or meditation. ;)
