Doolies insisted that I post this today. We started Naginata practice a couple of months ago. We're now professionals--in that we finally bought our uniforms. We've upped our attendance to practicing twice a week.
It's enjoyable in the same way as indoor rock climbing: you spend so much energy concentrating on what you're doing that you don't realize when two and a half hours passes and you're exhausted. It's exercising without the boredom. And you get to hit people. With a long stick. What's better than that?
The sun left us today and it's drizzling. We at least had one day of sunshine. We're considering going to watch Chun Li for its comedic value.
