Our first PK video!

So, here it is: our first year PK video. Simple stuff, mostly a good illustration of what our training is about and what any of us can do after a few months of practice. There is still plenty of room for progress, but we already reached the most important objective: having fun!!

Winter cold training

Now that we're finally getting some snow and cold, we can go back out and train in the bright, cold air! To train outside in the winter, though you need to remember a few things:

  1. Wear layers, so you can take them off as you warm up and put them back on as you cool down. Nothing worse than getting drenched in sweat and then freeze.

  2. Drink water while you train; with the cold you don't feel it, but you get dehydrated quickly.

  3. Take it easy on the endurance exercises, and warm up your joints thoroughly before any strength or flexibility exercise.

  4. Finish up with a big cup of hot chocolate!
