Yeah like that. But hmm yeah I'm not too sure... I'm literally trying that as I type haha, yeah I can connect with the lats with that movement, but then I can protract and depress the shoulder blades and still get a contraction... I'd explore that for sure and 'feel out' what works for you...
Yes absolutely, I think especially in moreso the striking martial arts we concentrate and work so much on strikes, thrusts, and generally pushing 'out' techniques, so any large pulling muscles get left behind. Plus yeah we only ever visually see the front of our body too.
That's a really cool...
This is really excellent to hear, thanks for the update! Yeah it really illustrates the process of listening to your body, making adjustments and tuning into when things feel better as a result. Very helpful to others reading this too.
Yes alot of negatives are detrimental for sure. Still use...
We applied for a new rental the other day.... success!!! We're moving! Current house is just falling apart... very much looking for a fresh start elsewhere. Funnily we only looked at 3 places, and the first one we fell in love with, we applied for and got it. Everyone around us were telling us...
Oh brilliant, thanks for that appreciate it! That one stuck out to me as well, and his kata one. And good on you for being open to exploring something you're skeptical on, there's alot to be said for that quality of openness :)
Oooooh I haven't heard of this fellow! All his books look great, adding em to the list!
Another one you might enjoy is by Kenji Ushiro, haven't read yet but it's apparently quite good
Here ya go! Even more reason to come to Australia! We're a progressive bunch, always on the move, welcoming to new things! Come have fun!
Ah yikes, charcoal haha! Yeah even any roast I stuff up I still will try it, sometimes I am pleasantly surprised!
A few different sources, usually Coffeesnobs, ICT Greenroom up north I get alot from, all specialty grade. But looking at new places to explore actually :)
Ah awesome! Yeah some Yirgs just are... an experience haha. Magical!
No I can't say I've roasted an anaerobic! They're certainly popping up lot more nowadays, especially with alot of use in the barista championships. I wouldn't know how to approach, but always a good rule of thumb is to do your...
Ssssssso! How did the Yirg pull up Steve?? :)
Just did a roast day today, also a Colombian Supremo Popayan and a new Peru HB (both washed), haven't roasted many Peruvians before! (Sounds like the name of some new comedy show...)
I bought mine cos it was dirt cheap and looked like fun haha. Not investing too much time into it but it's a good variation for reflex development for something coming towards your face. Also targeting accuracy for your punch too!
Pretty much! Although I don't know if that'll be enough to take it down!
Basically half a can of bug spray took care of it. Started spraying, it looked at me and gave me the finger, so had to keep spraying!
You know that spider I posted about ages ago that kept reappearing, with the tropical look, big body and stripey legs? Heeeee's back!
And I finally found out what sort he is, an orb weaver spider. But unsure what sort as there a few different types, like this picture but the body is more...
