day 2082 – secret backtuck

it was a gruesome four hour long colour belt test that saw one hundred and fifteen students. my lungs were exhausted after calling out instructions nonstop, but i’m committed to doing a back tuck every time i step in the dojo. i tried to do it while the grandmaster was out of sight lines but because my mental setup isn’t instant, he walked back into the frame in time to see it take place. he reacted in a way i didn’t expect – very surprised and encouraging. i expected warnings from him to avoid high risk moves, but instead he showed interest and excitement in my ability to do acrobatics and even asked to send him the video. i wasn’t happy with that particular flip because i could only muster a tired flip, but the footage is now on his facebook page

day 1582 – kurios 

cirque du soleil once again proves it’s entertainment at its best. a little under the weather but couldn’t pass up the opportunity to good seats for kurios. it was a display of amazing acrobatic skills that took me through time warp and challenged my perceptions. this would be one of the better cirque shows i’ve seen so far. kooza, zarkana, totem, ka, toruk, and now kurios, i have never been disappointed walking out of their shows. each time i witness something different that is mind blowing

it’s finally come time for my turn to watch cirque du soleil toruk – the first flight. looking forward to this because cirque is doing a vancouver tour once again. the coliseum was fullhouse today, even lining up for the washroom took nearly the entire twenty minute intermission. watching those nimble acrobats move so swiftly makes me feel like i need to get on the flexibility and mobility again and also up my ninja game

day 940 – cirque tour

thinking back to the olden days when i watched cirque du soleil totem right here in false creek vancouver. i adore watching all cirque shows alike because what they do is amazing and it’s nothing i can and will attempt in a million years. doesn’t look like they have any scheduled tours to vancouver this year, maybe it’s also an excuse to make a road trip

day 301 – cirque du soleil totem night

watching cirque du soleil and eating at bullock butcher to end of the day. this would be my third cirque show and they always provide some amazing entertainment and exhilarating experience. these acrobats have insane skills, coordination and flexibility to do things most people never even imagine. wish i could pick up some of those skills, for instance some flips would be awesome
