    Default Some Techniques on tape

    Hi.

    Me again. When I was recording the katas the other day, my instructor and I went a little nuts doing some techniques. Some of it is just us farting around, so they aren't all necessarily us giving 100%. In other words, keep your expectations low. He's going to be making some videos pretty soon and he couldn't understand how it could take 2hrs. for me to shoot an 18 min. video......until he got in front of the camera. It's amazing how your certainty disappears when that little red light comes on.

    I'll be looking forward to seeing them.

    I'm sticking one more one here. It's just Lone Kimono, which is not the most impressive-looking move, but as I said, we were just farting around for the camera.

    Good question. When are you going to open your own place Amy? I think you are ready.

    You guys are nice. I'm only a first degree black though and I feel like I have a ton to learn. Also, I like just teaching and not worrying about marketing for students and paying the bills.

    There's always more to learn but you seem to have a pretty firm grasp of the material. Oh yeah...paying bills sucks!

    Thanks. I don't think I'd have problems with the business side -- I've been self-employed for over 11 years, but I just don't wanna.

    Kenpo is one of the only things I do that I don't earn money doing. I've managed to make money doing all my other 'hobbies'. When I start earning money doing it, it becomes a job. And I get tired of my jobs.

    I'd rather do it for the joy. Then it's for me and I won't get tired of it.

    So far so good anyway.
