Reigniting the energy

I achieved a black sash in lau gar kungfu in 2011. Since then a combination of circumstances have hindered me in my progress, the latest being my A-levels. I have not trained properly for around 8 months and the shape and size of my body has massively changed along with all the skills and habits one builds up after 11 years of training.
I intend to soon restart my training and build up to the mindset of a true martial artist.  I want to record my progress in case this 'slump' is forced upon me again.

My intention is to sharpen up my Lau Gar forms, retrain the 'basics' and restart my steel-wire mantis training.
