I was about 50 reps in to a spinning back kick and as time went on I noticed that I kept losing my balance. Mind you - I’m the one teaching the class so I was a bit red-faced at this point.
Thankfully Teacher came in for a simple correction. “Just look at my face all the way through.” Bam – just like that I’m perfect again. As the exercises had progressed I started doing the beginner – looking at the floor, mirrors, whatever it takes to savage balance.
Teacher is going out of town and wants me to run the class a few days. This means that I have to run the kids class as well as the adult class. Talk about anxiety. Little kids freak me out. So to maybe help myself out I’m going to a few kids classes before he goes to gear myself up. Yikes. It’s like knowing a test is coming up.
I think in the adult classes we are going to work on jumping kicks. Something we never do, but they are part of the TSD songbook so I think it’s worthwhile. I also want to work on them for the simple fact that I can’t remember doing them very well in the past.
