I decided to attend a martial art class anyway yesterday, which was rather tough since it was for 3 hours from 18:30-21:30. But I learned some useful, unarmed fighting techniques. So, it was worthwhile. I will stick to attending the class on Sundays, unless I have something to do on some Sundays that I can’t attend the class. I also have to practise. It’s not going to do me any good if I go to dancing and martial art classes, but I will not train at home as well. All that time I spend going there will be a waste, except that I get to exercise. So, I have to start practising as well.
By the way, we also got to meet a stuntman from Jackie Chan’s stunt team which we could ask him anything. So, it was totally awesome to actually come face to face with the person who is really experienced in doing stunts for a well-known martial arts actor.
Below is a clip of me doing an unarmed fight scene:
I went to contemporary dance yesterday. It was tough. But it was amazing. I got to exercise all parts of my body and learn new skill. There are also some techniques in contemporary dance that similar to martial arts’ – which I do go once in a while as well, but I plan to go more often now – so it wasn’t something I wasn’t used to. So I really like it. I will attend contemporary dancing class maybe once or twice a week. I have to persistently continue with the training from now on if I want to master my skills and to be in good form.
Today, I will also go to yoga class. Luckily, there’s a yoga place near my home. So I don’t have to travel that far. But with dancing and martial arts classes, I have to travel far. Not so much the dancing class. It’s just in central London. But the martial arts class is quite far. There are also some martial arts schools near me, but I don’t really like them. But maybe, I should try to go to other places near me as well. I haven’t tried them all, yet. I have only tried a few of them. I just like the one that I always go. So, even it’s a bit too far, it’s okay.
I will also try to go to martial arts once a week, too. I just have to keep working out and perfecting my skills. Otherwise, it’s just a waste of time if I only go when I feel like to. So, every week, I go to dancing class, yoga, and martial arts. And since I don’t like going to the gym this is the best way for me to keep fit, and plus I get to learn new skills. As I get older, workout has become more and more vital because your body is not as strong and healthy as when you’re young. But even for young people, physical activities are also important for them. All in all, it’s just essential for everybody to be in good health and shape – no matter your age.
After the yoga class, I will have to do two self-tape auditions as well. So, I have to find the monologues to use for my auditions and memorise them. Then, after I am done with the self-tape auditions, I will work a little bit more on my screenplay. Maybe for a few hours or so. Just to take a small step towards my goal of finishing my screenplay although I don’t have time to write. Or, I will work a little bit more on my script now before I go to yoga class. I think, I’ll do that.
I rarely polish my nails. I think, I use nail polish once or twice a year. I just get impatient waiting for the varnish to dry. But this nail varnish I have on now is so amazing. It dries very quickly, which is good. It really makes the fingers look nice. So today I paint my nails to transform my nails to something new and nice, not just boring nails and fingers. I use beige nail polish – my favourite color. It really makes my fingers look different than before. When the result is this fantastic I shall paint my nails more often, then. I only have 3-4 nail polishes in various colours: Beige, red, blue, and even black. Maybe I will buy some more, but not the strong colors anymore since they don’t look good on me. I seldom use makeup and nail polish. But when I do use it I like to keep it discreet. The bright colors do not suit me anyway, so.
