Alycia and Sherilyn are both attending kickboxing and Muay Thai classes now. They love it! Well, my girls are not really girls. They prefer to indulge in boys’ stuff. When Alycia was about 7 or 8 years old, she was obsessed with Ultraman, guns and Doraemon and then progressed to something called One Piece figures (some figurines on fighters).
Once upon a time when she was 4 years old, Alycia joined ballet but quit after just a year. Prancing and bunny hopping in pointy toes while donning on cute little pink tutus just ain’t her jam. She does not even like to have long hair. Instead, I recently found out that she likes B-boy dance. I have not even heard of such a dance in my 45 years! B-boy dance is a kind of breakdance 😱
And fighting? It’s right up her alley!
Though she comes back from school at 5 p.m., goes for tennis lesson for half an hour from 5:30 – 6 pm, then proceeds to the gym for another half an hour, she still has the energy left for 1.5 hours of kickboxing or Muay Thai at night.
I thought that the coach will be gentler on girls but hell no. The exercises are really rigorous and exhausting, as if they are in some kind of boot camp. When I fetch the girls after their martial arts classes, they are always soaked to their bones in sweat. And the next morning, I see AcuStop plasters pasted on their legs! They get body aches all over but not a word of complaint do they utter to me.
