Hurts so good.

Posted Wed May 26, 2004, 09:01 AM by Tracy

After a few days I stopped hurting. I didn’t have it so bad as KungFu Kitten (see May 24 2004 entry “Oh My Ribs”), but I could barely roll out of bed last Sunday following our all-day ‘fu session on Saturday May 22.

I don’t know what we did to cause it, but my butt cheeks hurt!

Sunday I finally went shopping for new bras at Nordstrom. I’ve lost enough weight that the old ones were pretty saggy. I’ll shop at thrift stores for outerwear, but I don’t believe in going cheap on what lies beneath. Properly fitted foundation garments make all the difference.

  1. Aside from the rib problem, I found that my shoulder joints were very sore for a few days.

    I love shopping for underwear. It always fits, looks good and is fun to buy. One of my favorite spots is the Maidenform outlet in Troutdale. Sexy lingerie at reasonable prices.

  2. I won't add any comments about shopping for lingerie, which I of course don't know anything about.

    But I will point out that it is always weird when you wake up and some weird part of your body hurts from Kung Fu. "I didn't use my left forearm last night? Why is it sore?"

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.
