Training 3/17/17

The plan is to whip myself into shape...But first, I need to build a training foundation. Regime as of now:

-100 kicks (Meia Lua de Frente, Meia Lua de Compasso, Martelo, Armada, and Quexida)
-Bimba Sequências 1, 2, 3 and 6 (whatever correlates with class)

I know on days outside of class I need to do more, so I want to focus on things like my handstand, my queda de rins, and Au. A few reps  of that should get me in a more comfortable place, but I will need to start incorporating more fitness workouts.

Class 3/16/17

Today, I want to focus on several things. I feel that we need to keep the class physical, so I want to work on movements, several involving the hands (Au, negativa, and queda de rins.) Also, four Bimba sequências: 1, 2, 3, and 6

Tim Ferriss Books are Good

Okay, I only read one, but

It's got me thinking about a lot.

A whole lot.

Like an significant amount.

It feels when thinking about a leap of faith. I guess to a degree, you aren't suppose to think? Taking that kind of jump must be taxing, right? Ignoring social norms, your friends, your families, and most importantly, your bank account? As a stress eater, I know the long term goals start with little adjustments, looking like hurdles. I also know that diabetes is a looming figure on my life, who salivates when I consume a cheeseburger...or cookies (rather, cookie sandwiches.) Does that mean to know, jump?

It just can't be that easy - read book then fix life. Maybe it can? No, it definitely can't. Books of knowledge have been around for forever, which each having their own bias, but doesn't that mean this stuff should be learned behavior by now? Back to the bias- each story has the first drafts, the notes, the revisions, the cut material- all of this is a part of the process, but only a small part of it is seen. How messy did all of this leap of faiths get?

It's not like you can get the perfect youtube tutorial give you the precise step by step to happiness. Vagueness never did anybody any favors, but I feel like no matter how detailed it gets, there's gotta to be more than meets the eye. I also feel like there's no way any kind of self-help book or reference material can not be vague. You only get the see the masterpiece- only one person gets to see the single stokes, the tossed out canvas that have been trampled on in frustration. It's not like I shouldn't trust because it's neat, that's just professionalism.

Is it that I like a little mess?

So here's the deal.

I've moved to South West Florida.

I became Instructor Corvo April 2016.

I am now teaching classes at the Estero Rec. Center in Estero, FL.

I have three students.

I'm in a weird place of being content with my role in corporate america, all while wanting to strive in my writing and my capoeira. The capoeira portion has taken off (obviously) because I have a lot more responsibility. I want my students to learn so much, kick ass, and stay. I want to do everything I can to make those three things happen.

I'm still the only one (who isn't friends and family) that's concerned with the writing. Imma figure that out soon too.

I'm learning code, mostly to make sure to capitalize the capoeira maranhao site (harder than I anticipated because coding is hard.) In that, I want to expand on the possibility that's currently set up to pay for my classes. It's pretty manual, and requires you to pay at the counter of the rec center. It's totally fine, but...I feel like should take advantage of being in 2017.

My body needs to change, my game needs to get back, and I need consistency in my music. I got a lot of stuff to do.

I guess I'm glad that what new years are for.
