Went to sticks practice again. We did all the motions that one does in sticks. There were a LOT of them. It was amazing. There were a lot that I did not get. I can see where sticks would help with distance, and with knowing where your center and energy are going. The end of my stick wobbles around a lot!
We then did the 31 count Kata, and a practice with a partner in which we added a lot of movements together. It was cool, but I can't say that I am of a sufficient level to get anything other than the fact that my stick wobbles a lot more than everyone else's out of it.
