01/october Not much to log of late due to extra long hours at work once again . Focusing what little time I have on taiji . Our class has shrunk to half a dozen which has actually helped us in making good progress with pau chui ( and fajin training ) , a new jian form and our Grandmasters new frame. Went to an event at the Tang Long school in north London last weekend with my daughter who was competing . Made more interesting by the small size of the venue and that there was just one mat for all categories ; hand/weapon forms and sanda . My daughter did well in the adult chen hand form , coming third competing against much older opposition , with afore-mentioned new frame . Hoping to get back on track with my running when this week's over - time to treat myself to some new shoes as another pair bites the dust .
