  1. So, yeah, I grew up reading comics. And when I got some time, I still love reading them. And these are some of my favorite guys: And you know what? I wanna look & be more like those dudes. Yes, I know they are imaginary. I know that I'm being unrealistic. I know that the last dude has horns. But that is a goal for reaching, not achieving. And I'm gonna go for it. Fit like Mark, dedicated like Frank, unyielding like Bruce, focused like Conan, free- moving like Lord Graystoke and ... cool like Big H. Why?
  2. What happened? How did I get here? Well... ...well, I left my old working place, and got a better job. was not easy, but did it! my wife got her big promotion, and now is a big boss at work! we got a loan from the bank and have bought a french car. I call him Red. I started doing a lot of additional work in local community , teaching kids to role play. ... and I really really tried to have my own dojo, but it went bust. I put op the posters monthly, I invited people regularly, I made ads and stuff,
  3. It was so long ago, and so many things happened. ... ...well, I left my old working place, and got a better job. was not easy, but did it! my wife got her big promotion, and now is a big boss at work! we got a loan from the bank and have bought a french car. I call him Red. I started doing a lot of additional work in local community , teaching kids to role play. ... and I really really tried to have my own dojo, but it went bust. I put op the posters monthly, I invited people regularly, I made ads and stuff, I paid the gym on time (and my friend the
  4. Oh, how long ago have I written all of this...
  5. Got the new space for my gym! Awesome! Along with my stuff ( punching bags, focus mitts, weapons), there's a lot of other stuff ( weigts, ketlebells, barbells, dumbbells, etc) that I can use!
  6. The dojos in Croatia have a fee in the range around 35 to 50 $ a month ( depending on the timetable of lessons: 2 times, 3 times or entire week long ).
  7. Hope you had a good time with Systema. (hope I ge to do that sometime, too) Considering the ones you mentioned, there was Aikido. From my experience, aikido is great for stretching, balance, perception, breathing exercises, reducing stress and health. There are unarmed and armed techniques ( knife, stick, sword ), a lot of falling and rolling. Basically, it is a defensive grappling martial art with a traditional Japanese feel to it. There are a few different branches of aikido, but basically they all come from the same source. To see how it looks like, look it up on goo
  8. I keep a diary of aikido lessons, and drawing stick figures and body parts to explain what was going on. Also, it is good to note it down, and then review it later to see how much you understood then, how much you understand now, and how much will you understand later on
  9. Still sticking to it. Every morning, stretching and some yoga. Need to do it, or my back will crack - I'm a kindergarten teacher, so there is a lot of movement and bending down - picking up stuff involved. My body is my tool. Every day some exercise: if not martial arts, then kettlebell. Or strength routine. Or natural movements outside. Or just walking for 30 minutes. Every day, thinking what I eat. I cut out milk, too. Watched a show where a doctor said that drinking milk is not really good for persons of my age (35.). Back to the dojo soon. Kind of feel bad
  10. Same here. I use a baseball bat to swing around, many gallon jugs to carry, stacks of books as yoga blocks, heavy bags and full backpack, towels for better grips, even an old phone book as a makiwara, duffel bags filled with old blankets for striking pads, and oven mitts for hand protection. Scrounging - that's my way.
  11. Gonna start a new addition to my workouts: the path of the shadow warrior. The Shinobi no mono. Yup, that's right. The path of the NINJA! Why? Because I frikkin' love ninjas. I loved them since my childhood. I loved them ever since I have seen the Awesome Ninja Super Movie (and yes, I know that reveals how old I actually am. Shut up.) So, that's why I have started my journey into martial arts. As I mentioned in my previous personal quest post: " I'm a martial arts geek, too. Ever since I saw Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon and Michael Dudikoff in Am
  12. Summer is here. Finally. And it's hot and humid, down here in Croatia. Still sticking to my morning routine. And I added this little bundle of joy to it: So I get to lift and play around with 16kg each morning.
  13. "Keep grinding. No matter how much it hurts, no matter how hard it gets, you gotta keep grinding. And that's how we're gonna win. And we're gonna win. We're gonna save Cas, we're gonna ice the Devil and we're gonna shank the Darkness. And anyone that gets in our way? Well, God help them."

  14. So tired. Sometimes, so tired. Wake up in the morning and go to work, then hold lessons in English language for kids, then rest for half an hour, then go to the aikido practice, then take the bus home and fall asleep on the bus, then finally come home, cook and clean a bit, then bed. Day in day out. And still feeling guilty for not doing more, for not working out more. But when ?
  15. Woods are lovely, dark and deep...
