Steps are getting more complex than before, but not that hard. I managed to pick them up slowly. My pace is fair enough, since I am female, and my fellow silat members are mostly pretty much younger than me. Yes, I have gained weight since I graduated. So I am lacking of stamina here, I am gasping for air after 5 minutes of regular warm up. The bending part is the hardest, because I have myabdomenisnotsoflatanymore symptom.
We learned, "buah gayung fatani" and "buah sendeng atas" or so they are called. Perfectly berterabur, especially buah sendeng atas. but I think, we finally get our change to counter attack (in Silat Cekak Hanafi, all basic buahs or steps are for defensive mode, so you need to be attacked first, before buka buah).
Err.. one senior was quite snobbish last night. I know our steps were berterabur. But no need to push us that hard or showed that attitude. may be he was just geram, because we took quite some times to pick up those steps.
so sudah ada timbul sakit2 as we grabbed, slapped (hard) each others' arms, softly elbowed each others' ribs, or may be tersasul penumbuk ke dagu kawan. sorry lah sparring partner, kau punya grab pun bisa juga ok. I slapped your arms hard, (and you grabbed my arms as hard). afterall the abang senior said slapped harder sampai ada bunyi the slapping sound. So I slapped lah. And my left heel is cracked, since we practiced with barefoot last night. Aku gelek punya gelek.. as expected.. memang kasar tapak kaki. Tadi kelam kabut selongkar minyak2 or losyen2, but I dont have any suitable lotion or oil (Bimbonya aku...hahaha). Besok lah beli losyen murah2.
Now I can feel the commitment in silat. There are problems, especially time. I have time. Plenty of time. Cuma selalu berpindah randah lately, sampai barang tertinggal sana sini. ok ini sudah cerita lain.
(aisey.. kenapa aku taip hingglish ni?... Tertulis, lalu terabur lah kan)
p/s: Silat aku buat separate entry. banyak lagi aku mau tulis ni
