Some of this is just stuff that has happened to me lately that I felt like shareing with you. Part of it is I need help. On the stuff I felt like shareing part. I HAVE A JOB!!!!!!!!! What sucks is it is with McDonalds. So I'm being paid barely more then minimum wage to take lip from fat women and five year olds...brother. And I have to walk home alot of the time. And it is over two and a half miles away. So atleast I'll get a mini workout in. I also recently broke three boards. Which for my age and weight is the minimum for my next belt. So yay me. On the I need help part. While I did break three boards, it was after a few attempts. So I would like some conditioning tips. The technique is a downward palm heel. My current conditioning is 60 push ups, drilling the strike, and doing stick fighting with a peice of pipe I have. My sister told me about the 'final fu' series. I was scimming through the threads I missed and some more on it. But what I don't know is when it will be on. It looks intersting. Also (and last) I have started to write a story. For no reason other then I'm board. The prelude is basicly one of my visions of the future. Very few end nicly for anyone. I basicly just added a story line to the end. But I have a little problem. a few of the main characters do a modified form of a martial art. Why they need to be modified is long story. But anyways. One of the main characters (named Eriu, if you care) does Eagle Claw, and her faviorite weapon is the spear. However I am not very familar with Eagle Claw, does it even teach the spear? Anouther character mostly uses the war fan. But I cann't think of a style that uses it. Remember my story takes place in China. So a form of kung fu would be the most realistic. there yah go.
