I'll cut to the point - I'm wondering if I should keep blogging about judo and life. I've been writing this blog for 8 years now. The posts on matwork even turned into a book, Winning on the Ground.
I'm really pressed for time these days. It is all I can do to make it to Gompers to teach on Fridays and to fit in a few weekend activities with the students each year.
Tomorrow, we are doing the first school-wide beta testing for our new bilingual game, Aztech, which is our fourth game. We've had a few beta test sites that were classrooms or after school programs but this is the first whole school roll out.
I'm sure almost everyone reading this has the same feeling of not enough hours in a day.
Ironically, I've actually been DOING more judo lately and blogging about it less. We went to a clinic with the fabulous Flavio Canto at Orange County Judo Training Center last month and this month I got to be part of the Grappling Summit in Morgan Hill (really pretty place I had never been). Of course, I taught transition to armbars.
I also started doing a youtube playlist on Five Minutes of Free Advice, partly because it only takes me 10 minutes, counting the uploading. Lanny and I did talk about athletes with unrealized potential in one of those.
So, since I ramble on about what I'm thinking about here, I thought I'd solicit your thoughts. Is 8 years enough? Should I just blog about judo? Should I give up both blogging and judo and try knitting?
