Discretion is the better part of responsibility

Early Morning Work Out

Got up early and worked out while still cool @ dawn 0530 could not sleep any more so just worked out in the early morning quite. Just watching the dawn and building my Chi. It is great to work out then before the hustle and bustle of the day gets started. The Sayaw flows well with the breathing techniques. Practiced it three different ways with stick with out and small hunting type blade trainer.

This is what happen, I was on guard duty for my unit (The Philippine Scouts Historical Society) my job was to challenge any WW-2 re-enactor or pirate for their pass , if not then I would escort them to my commander. This is done to cause some small… Continue
