My martial arts club had its biannual training camp over the weekend at Broken Bay Sports & Rec Camp – and once again I had a fantastic time. We trained long and hard and ate so much food – not all of it healthy. We focused on getting our weapon routines down – double swords for the green belts and up, and pole for us brown and yellow belts. I am really happy that I have now learnt the entire pole routine as I want to start competing with it as soon as I can so that I can compete in weapons at the Gay Games in August.
Today I am feeling very stiff and sore and sleep deprived, so it is a very good thing that I am able to work from home today. Fortunately, I came away from camp with very few bruises, so I am not going to look battered when I show up at the office tomorrow morning.
I took my camera with me to camp, but unfortunately, it is almost impossible to get good shots of people doing martial arts – they move way too quickly for the camera to capture. It is a shame as I would loved to have gotten some shots of the guys doing double sword – it just looked amazing. However, I do have some lovely scenery shots to make you all jealous of the gorgeous place I got to spend the weekend.
