The Kea Bird is my God

The Kea Bird is my God

To please the gods, we sent a brave warrior to make an offering. We're glad to say the Gods smiled upon us, smited our enemies and bought more Barbell Biltong.

Shuffle Shake

Shuffle Shake

Shaking like this demands relaxation in the upper traps and shoulders, somewhere I carry tension. The shake at the end there is harder than it looks. The movement does not come from throwing the head of the shoulder forward. Rather, it is generated from the mid back; rhomboids.

I kicked a string and I liked it

I kicked a string and I liked it
