Integrated Martial Arts

I have been attending a Integrated Martial Arts class with my son for a couple months now. (Taekwondo, Judo, T’ai Chi Chu’an, Tang Soo Do) I first joined cause I saw other women my age was trying it out. So I thought why not!! First class,,, they was there,,, but after that ,, they dropped out! So I was like,,, hmmmm How long can I stick this out???

It’s hard,, demanding,, physical,, and fun. I have a thing about touching others,, and being touched. I DON’T LIKE IT!!  But being involved in this class,,, I am slowly loosing that  thought.

Also I like doing something my son is doing,,, he likes me going ,, and knowing I can fully defend myself if harm comes my way.

Every practice I leave red faced and outta breath,,, flop sweat all over,,, but feeling great!!

My first belt test was only 3 weeks after I joined. I earned a yellow stripe,,, very first level of the class. I was so proud of myself!!

At the end of April is my next test,,, full Yellow. My Sifu said I’m a natural and  caught on quickly also could jump belts ( be on the same level as my son),,, but I wanted to do this right. Take my time,, and appreciate the forms fully.

I catch on quickly,,, I was in dance from 3 yrs to 22 yrs lol,,, so Its all a big dance for me lol

My son is a Purple Stripe,,, 2 levels higher than me. Hes been working about a year longer than me. I told him,,, I’m going to pass you up!!! lol    He says, “Come on then!!” lol

Here’s my son ,,, and That’s our Sifu in black,, little but Mighty!!
