Goofy Me

At Tai ji class,we're all into preparations for our upcoming presentation on the 27th.  It's a yearly affair where all the martial arts students converge and perform.  The last two Thursdays, I've sort of been the center of distraction hahaha!  My partner has not been around and we're at the center of the formation.  So, to resolve the problem and since we're still learning the new moves, my partner is our Lao Shi (teacher / coach).  Indeed, sometimes I am fumbling to learn the moves and a bit of pressure in there as coach keeps correcting my moves and a lot of times, I simply goof off.  I know that because I would see my classmates either looking on quite confused or giggling.  Oh but we're all actually confused and coach says it's a good thing.  Because after all the confusion, it would become clearer.  I just hope he stops from changing moves every now and then, so we can all go to memorizing the moves already.

I'm not used to having our coach so near.  I've always been uncomfortable when he teaches us then lets us do the moves and he watches on.  I tend to make mistakes early on.  But am surprised that am not nervous at all this time.  I simply follow his lead.  I guess it's also the atmosphere of the class.  We're already like family.  And our coach is the most patient teacher I have ever encountered in my entire learning.  You will rarely or never see him get impatient. Plus the fact that he always smiles and tells us funny stories sometimes. 

So even if I am at the center and goofing off, it's a fun experience.  But still, I am nervous about the presentation itself...heaven help me...


I really appreciate your professional approach. These are pieces of very useful information that will be of great use for me in future.
