A Great RKC!

The RKC is a unique community.  Not only are we slightly off dead center in our interests (card tearing, bending, odd lifts, kettlebells, torn hands...) but there is a strong sense of community.
For example - upwards of 20 or so RKCs came back to assist at this RKC on a volunteer basis.
They volunteer their time and resources to assist at the RKC and are intent on providing the same experience they had to the new attendees.  It is amazing and it is a big reason why I am so motivated to stay on top of my game and why I am so proud to be a Master RKC.

Team Jones was simply great.  I had a combination of strength coaches, trainers, a florist, two true survivors and they all worked hard, learned well and made me proud.

My assistants were solid and represented the RKC very well.  Tim Anderson, Fawn Friday and Sharon Nelson took care of Team Jones and ensured that everyone had their questions answered and their form critiqued. I could not have done it without them.

Pavel and the rest of the Seniors, Master and Team Leaders - I learn every time I teach with you.

Go Team Jones!

Yesterday I did some card tearing:
6 decks total - 3 duct tape tears (one - 1 layer, two - 2 layers), 1 behind the back, 1 regular, 1 deck + 12 cards.  I also quartered two of the halves.
Adam Glass gave me a few pointers this weekend at the RKC which will help with my progression in card tearing. 

Training later today...
