I just got back from PAWMA camp and are my legs sore!

Posted Tue Sep 07, 2004, 13:09 PM by Tracy

Mo Duk Pai women went to PAWMA camp this Labor Day weekend and we had a blast as always. Even better, my college roommate, Mukti, who lives in Olympia and practices Taiji and Qigong in addition to Yoga, was with us.

My highlight was a kicking class. For 1-1/2 hrs we did kicks kick kick. We partnered up and kicked as fast as we could for one minute. I did 166 kicks in one minute on my right leg, a class record. I’m paying for it now. My legs are so-o-o sore.

I also took a ton of photos which I will get up on the Mo Duk Pai web site some time. A couple other MDP women took photos as well, so I’ll have to get them all together and pick out the best.

  1. I was there with you in spirit! If I could have removed my spine and left it at home I would have totally been there. Just think how easy chi sao would be without a spine.

About

About Mo Duk Pai

Mo Duk Pai kung fu is a modern American eclectic system of martial arts, combining hard- and soft-style techniques Mo Duk Pai, which translates to “Martial Ethical Way”, was founded by Professor Frederick D. King. For more information, to see photos or inquire about training, visit the Mo Duk Pai web site, which I also maintain. I have been training since 1996 and currently hold the rank of brown-black sash.

Sifu

Sifu (pr. see-foo [Cantonese] or shur-foo [Mandarin]) is a Chinese term for Teacher. It also carries the connotation of Father (teacher-father), referring to a tradition of teaching martial arts within the family, as well as being a title of respect. In America the title sifu is given to both men and women. In Mo Duk Pai the title is awarded to 2nd degree black belts at their teacher’s discretion.

Qigong

Qigong (pr. chee-gung) is the practice of Chinese exercises incorporating movement and posture, breathing and visualization. Qigong exercises focus on maintaining health by energizing and balancing one’s qi, or energy.
