So we had a board breaking seminar here at Cobourg Tae Kwon Do to help raise money to send Team Wolverine to the US OPEN and ISKA World Championships in Orlando Florida on July 3rd and 4th. It was a good day of breaking. We started out the seminar with different methods of meditating followed by an explanations of various hard body conditioning techniques. various breaking materials and how to break them with a variety of techniques was then discussed in great detail. The last part of the seminar consisted of seminar attendees breaking their material with various technqiues and having them analysis by us. Everyone put forth great effort in breaking and learning new things. I appreciate everyone who stayed after to help clean up and take some of the wood away. Team Wolverine appreciates everyone’s support.
Also last night was UFC 98 from Las Vegas Nevada. I was interested in three of the fights. The first was between Sean Shrek and Frankie Edgar. Sean Shrek lost the decision 30-27. Sean Shrek always is in outstanding shape but seems to have problem last night pulling the trigger. Edgar basically just out striked Shrek for the win.
The second fight I wanted to see was the Matt Hughes vs. Matt Serra. I wanted to see this fight the most. There was a few reasons for this. One was I am a fan of Matt Hughes and wanted to see him start winning again. Second reason was i wanted to see Hughes kick Serra’s butt. Serra runs his mouth way too much. Both Matts came in looking to be in the best shape I have ever saw them in. Hughes wins the fight after going through all three rounds and winning by decision 29-28. I thought he deserved 30-27. Matt Hughes dominated Serra.
The last fight I wanted to see was Machida vs. Evans. It was an interesting fight. Both fighters were undefeated going into the fight. Machida knocked Evans out in the second round with a furry of punches. Evans ‘t know where he was. It is nice to see a traditional martial artist win the UFC Light Heavyweight World Championship.
I also trained a little bit myself on the weekend. I got into a habit now when I take the dog for a walk I will stop by the park and do pull ups and hanging knee raises on the moneky bars. I can do 21 proper pull ups and 26 proper knee ups.
