A friend asked me last week what I do to unwind, apart from photography. As most readers know, my blogs tend to be picture related. If its not the 9-5 job (working on a Picture desk for a publishing company), its working as a freelance Live Music Photographer. So, if anything, I have the best of both worlds.
So, what are my hobbies? I’m an avid computer gamer and my current game at the moment ranges from The Orange Package (Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2, etc) to ‘Company of Heroes‘. Yeah, you might call me an ‘agbaya‘ (big baby), but to each his own.
But even then, there is only so much you can do sitting in front of a computer screen with the high possibility of destroying your eyesight, so it’s good to work out your body. I’ve never been one for running, and let’s face it, to try running in my neighbourhood is asking an inviting from the police. I love my volleyball, but haven’t trained for about a year. I used to fight Taekwondo, but I got bored. That is until I recently I found out about Rapid Arnis. Man, talk about a total workout!
Anyway, here’s a full contact sparring session video clip from last week’s training session. Suffice to say I had to break out the Bath Salts…
(In case you’re wondering, I’m the short one… but that’s blooming obvious!!!)
