I love doing flying side kicks. We practiced them at the end of class today, with a huge, long runway.

I knew from the first time I saw one being done that I would love to do it--if I could figure it out. It took me a while to do that. At first, my main problem was not knowing when to jump. I have to jump early, so I can fly into that pad (or board). Once I figured that out, I could really fly up and out, throwing myself at the pad and punching that side kick. Now I'm working on form--making it really beautiful.

Of course, the only time Master Hughes was watching me ("Go Jane!" he yelled from across the floor) I stuttered in the middle and my form was off. Oh well. My classmates saw me doing it!
