How does implementation help you out throughout the year? I am curious to know what things have worked for you and what things have not worked for you through an implementation standard.  Continue

Why We Love Bruce Lee

Ok, my killjoy of a husband said it isn't true, that it's not possible to hit a ping pong ball with a num chuc and aim the ball with that level of accuracy.

Hmmm. He is from Vietnam and knows his martial arts, so we have to consider what he is saying, but he might also be biased with jealousy : ).

I choose to believe.

Thanks for the video my students loved it.

LOL! Amazing. We need more heroes and more believing! I'm going to be showing all my table tennis addicted Korean colleagues this. At lunch at our training center, the tables under the cafeteria are always full and on days when I run across the hall on my treadmill, I'm thoroughly entertained by watching them through the glass, bang and bash away. But none of them could touch Bruce and him num chucks!

Yeah, Bruce Lee's a gd hero in our house too- boys!! I gotta admit, he is pretty cool : ) Chuck is even better though, not so skinny :D I can't help myself:

Did I mention he is 57 years old now, and can still press 700 lbs with his legs? (no lie!) He doesn't do it much though, only for me or the kids... the muscles are willing, but the knees are worn out : ) Ok, still can't resist, here is little chuck : )

I thought I'd post this video here.... a recent popular video on youtube. Ninja's Unboxing...

Well, I really didn't know "we" love Bruce Lee, haha. Now I know why you are so fond of martial arts. Is that one of your boys? Amazingly attractive, really cute. Mine is in the "martial business" too: He loves Naruto ^-^
Thankfully he's going to start university in September so, after all, he's not completely spoiled.

Comment by Ellen Pham on March 23, 2010 at 1:33am
:D :D Mine (both boys) love Naruto too... and Rosa, they are both in college (meaning university in US)!

I have a mixed relationship with martial arts... the gd in the quote "Yeah, Bruce Lee is a gd hero in our house too-boys!!" is short (and a bit more polite) for god damn... oops, sorry! :D

I only went to one tournament and swore I would never go to another- it was like being in a huge room of kids who wouldn't stop fighting. I spent all day wanting to yell, "KNOCK IT OFF!!" Honestly, I don't think I've ever been in a worse mood, and it was all environmentally caused!

Husband Chuck was the one to keep them on the black belt path. I made sure they all swam beautifully : ). Oh, and could read- that too!

THE EASTER BUNNY HATES YOU (don't be put off by the boring splash screen, this video is funny)

Rosa, this video is especially for you! There's even a complete ESOL lesson for this video over at the hilarious Turkish TEFL...

HILARIOUS! This is my youngest son's humor. Uh, maybe you have to get the martial arts references... no, it's still funny!

BAD Easter bunny! George, I only posted the second part.. there is a part 1...

Yeah, I'm just trying to get to you now... bad Ellen.

There are some lovely new videos of owls... someone should comment there to encourage me in the right direction!

Ellen, I watch your bird blogs quite regularly, they are marvellous. Especially the hummingbirds:-)
So I am a bit shocked by these two videos... generally I do not indulge myself in violence, but I accept it when it has some meaning. For myself I do not see any of it here. Sorry, but I do not get this kind of humor :-(
