day 1852 – chicks champs

both jabba and chicks had a good playoff run in their respective tiers, but it’s safe to say chicks one up’d jabba to take home tier champs. it’s too bad i couldn’t be a part of the playoff run and in the end it is probably best for my injury. i’m very happy for the group of guys and everyone’s contributions. even though i couldn’t be there for the celebration, i also received a hardware. i won’t be playing with this group for fall, but i’m expecting to return next spring season

day 1834 – kukkiwon demo

kukkiwon national team visits vancouver again third year in a row. on one hand i’m stoked to watch their demonstration expecting nothing less of spectacular. on the other hand i’m disappointed i won’t be able to participate in their training because my shoulder is still failing me like no other. it hurts not being able to take on this rare training, but i had to be present to satisfy the requirement of being there for my students. either way, the koreans made it spectacular with their spin kicks, multiple kicks and apple breaking

day 1823 – team barbecue

there’s a few flakes but the team barbecue turnout wasn’t too shabby. there was a lot of drinking involved considering the rest of the guys are playing a game afterwards. i wouldn’t be in on any of the drinking games if i was healthy enough to play. i’m very disappointed i have to sit out, especially when i was ramping up my hot goals streak. the duration is indefinite until i get another assessment. i’m on a short leash so i could be off to the emergency barring any symptoms. i’m praying it’s nothing serious, but i’m also starting to worry more and more

day 1792 – supreme me

ate a late night banana and hope i don’t get leg cramps overnight after a night of flipping and hockey sandwiched with a quick dinner. got a chance to test out my newly acquired supreme shin pads and i like the coverage. overall, my line played a good game despite getting hit in the ribs with a slapshot during warmup. i felt it immediately and hunched over for a good while and the fact adrenaline hasn’t clicked in wasn’t a good feeling. it hit hit directly in unpadded territory between my pants and chest protector. i’ll definitely see the big bruise tomorrow morning

day 1785 – pvc roller

on the ground for hours icing and rolling myself out after feeling the pains of a pull. i hadn’t noticed any pain or spasm until i got home and adrenaline wore off. prior to that, i had gone to class to work on more combos, cheat seven twenties, cartwheels and back tucks. i was quite pleased with my stuff today especially getting a handful of back tuck practices in with less spot. i feel better about it and it’s just a matter of getting the confidence now to making it over with no hesitation. in the meantime, i’m doing everything possible to alleviate this pain sensation i’m feeling done my back; and an appointment is upcoming

day 1765 – kp time

decided living off tape to walk normally wasn’t sustainable, so went in to the clinic to fix my neck, knee and ankle. i walked into physio clinic with many things that was either tight or wasn’t feeling right, but walked out with assurance i’ll be able to move properly again. crazy its been twenty years since my physio opened this clinic and even crazier thinking what i would have done the past fourteen years if it weren’t for him. i hope he never retires so i can continue to ham with everything i do and everything i want to do

day 1750 – suspending

that time playing on friend’s rings trying calisthenic moves while waiting for our carpool. i still remember we met up at midnight to do a red eye drive down to portland competition. the good old times when i am still active in the competition world, training and coaching at the same time. those days are gone and i no longer have the same competition goals anymore; maybe i finally realize it’s time to let go so my broken body won’t get anymore broken
