I think I told you all in another thread about what happened in a seminar with our school's founder. Out of that came the realization I need to focus on "eating bitter." That is I need to work on stance training and slow motion kicks. I figure if I track it, I won't have excuses to skip it. I have to drop my ego and admit my leg strength needs serious work. So I know my stance training is starting at a low point. But the first step in overcoming any problem is an honest admission of the issue. Because of knee issues, I am starting at a low point and building slowly. But if I am consistent, I should see progress. Also, note that when I say TCC Class, that usually includes push hands. But I am going to be lazy and just say TCC class. CLF classes are more divided (sparring is a separate class) than our TCC classes, which integrate things like push hands. Another weird thing is we have one CLF internal form in our TCC curriculum. So I list it with my TCC practice, but yes, I know it is not actually TCC. Slow motion kicks are snap, knife edge and rear. When I say I do 3 rounds- 1 round is doing these three kicks. When I mention pattern push hands practice. Two of my classmates and I get together once a week to focus on this. Others are welcome to join us, but it is usually just us three. When I mention stance training that has two sides, like a crane stance, my time is for both sides. Unless I specify otherwise. Also, I think I am going to write down important thoughts - teachings - not just keep a physical log. Hey, I just started this. Not sure what form it will take!
