My workouts at the dojo have been very erratic. As soon as I feel funny, I stop what I am doing. The thought of laying in bed for 3 months still lingers in the back of my mind.


I have heard that maai should be 2 lengths. I seem to find it is better to be at about 1 1/2 lengths.

The closer I am, the better things work.

The argument that older instructors have more experience, as well as training, means nothing. Fresher ideas and younger instructors, bring more to the table these days. The wheel has to b ...More Read More
