I'm learning aikido at the Great Lakes Aikai dojo.
I enjoy training days with the bokken and jo in class.
I've been shooting with the University's archery club for quite a few
years. We shoot indoors in the fall and winter semeters and outdoors in
during the spring and summer semesters. I shoot with a compound bow
without a release aid because I'd like the challenge without extra
I was in the fencing club for a while. Learning to fence
with a foil using the pistol grip. Looking back I should have
learnt sabre fencing, anyway now I'm taking up aikido and don't
have time to do both.
Sailing / Windsurfing
I used to sail back in Hong Kong at the Royal Hong Kong Yacht Club
and now with the University of Michigan's Sailing Club. Since then I have
sailed Wanderers, Lasers, Toppers, 470s and Sunfishes. When its warm
enough during the summer I windsurf and I sail the Lasers most of the
time. Its a great way to relax and hiking all the way out in strong
winds is a rush for me.
I play squash whenever I get a hold of anyone who can play around here.
There aren't too many squash players at U of M. So its kind of hard to
keep it regular.
Lately, I've been playing beach volleyball every Saturday with friends
or with anyone I meet at the volleyball courts. Its a great way to enjoy
the spring and summer weather here in Ann Arbor. Click
