Remember that post a while back wherein I asked 'Tae Kwan Do or Kickboxing'?

Tae Kwan Do it is. I won six months worth o' lessons. Granted, fitting it in now that rehearsals are starting should be interesting, but... I want to learn it. I want the challenge. I want the exercise/weight loss benefits (now, thank you very much!).

Yesterday I went in, filled out paperwork and got my shiny white pjs (I have no idea what they're really called). Today, clad in shiny white pjs, I received a 45 minute private lesson. Basically, it was the stances, basic punches and kicks and the bow. I worked up a sweat, and the alarmingly young and energetic young man said my technique (especially the punches) was quite good. My kicks? Well, not so much. At least I didn't think so. But but but but it was a lot of fun. In front of a class full of strangers may be another story. We shall see.

Off to fold the shiny white pjs!

ETA: Just caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror in pj pants and tank tap. The pants, gathered in to an elastic waist, clearly are designed to make any woman's ass look poofy and huge. That must be why the pj top is so long - to cover the poofy horror.
 
 
I feel: chipperchipper

Kel, have I mentioned lately how much I love you?


Thank you so much my darling. :)

Thank you, sweet. I've felt so very disconnected of late, in so very many ways... I want you to know I love you, too. *snugglesquish*

And you are most welcome. I do love giving the gifties!

Ghi, I think it's called. I can't verify the spelling, but yeah. That's what I think it should be spelled like.

"Gi." ~giggle~ And you're right about the pants, Kel, they're just too silly, but the rest of it is fun. :0)

Yes! Thank goodness someone else noticed the poofyness of the pants. And the place where I went had wall to wall mirrors, which made it hard to ignore.

In truth, I'm relieved to know it is not just me. How horrible to think I might be the only poofy-pants.

I won six months worth o' lessons.

Yay!!!

Yesterday I went in, filled out paperwork and got my shiny white pjs (I have no idea what they're really called).

It's a gi. (Pronounced like ghee, the clarified butter used in Indian cooking.) But... *shiney*?? Ummm.

'Firefly' slang.
Ilena Ayalanetsearcher on May 3rd, 2005 08:45 pm (UTC)
OK. "Ooooh shiney" I can deal with. I was worried about polyester kind of shiney. (In a gi? Just the idea makes me want to twitch.)

re: bad shiny, mine is a bit stiff. I didn't dare wash it, though, in case it was the wrong size. It isn't. Although the fit of the pants is a bit wonky. Granted, my general conformation is decidedly wonky, so I can deal.
Kelladyjoust on May 3rd, 2005 09:19 pm (UTC)
Oh, and when I say it fits, I'm accepting that the poofy-butt is normal... -ish.

It's supposed to be poofy, to allow for movement. If you wash the top and pants, let them hang dry.
Good luck grasshopper.
I wanna see jump spinning crescent kicks by end of faire ::chuckle::!

Wow! Where'd ou win six months of lessons from?!?! That's great!!
Is it a lesson a week type of thing?

Steve started taking Aikido a few months ago. It's more self offense than defense.

"Gee" is correct, spelling, not sure.

Just caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror in pj pants and tank tap. The pants, gathered in to an elastic waist, clearly are designed to make any woman's ass look poofy and huge. That must be why the pj top is so long - to cover the poofy horror.

You probably look absolutely adorable in them!!!
