Pretty toes.

Pretty toes

I finally got back to kung fu today and went to sparring class. Talk about out of shape! I’ve been out of training for a couple weeks and my conditioning bites. But at least I got some good bruises to show for it.

Afterwards, Sifu Patty and I got pedicures. I’ve never had a pedicure before. I got pretty toes now.

I stopped in at the salon near my house and got my hair cut. It’s been 3 months since my last cut and I looked like a shaggy hag. The girl did a nice job, considering she had only my vague description to go on. She kept checking with me that the cut was going the way I expected, which I appreciated. I’m letting the color go back to natural and letting the gray come in. I’m curious to see how that’s going to work out.

  1. Pretty feet! I know when I get back to kung fu I'm going to be hurting. Slow and unable to take a punch or keep up with everyone. Oh well, that's what beginning cleass is for, eh?

  2. Oh yeah, nice picture of feet. All that's missing now is a picture of hair.

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 (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 (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.
