doc-andy-training(2)

[Doc Andy Tan is shown here being provided PERSONALIZED style of training by my brother WARREN T. YOUNG in the SERVICE or TENDER of the SHUTTLECOCK, by striking the COCK seamlessly in bringing the same unto the opposite court. It was indeed a unique show of humility and exemplary leadership on the part of Doc Andy to be there on the FIRST DAY of practice which was held on April 15, 2017. ASPAC Board Member Cindy Franco is shown at the extreme right portion doing the role of a “PULOT-GIRL” for Doc Andy as can be seen from the clump of COCKS which Cindy collected on the floor then being clutched by her on her left hand. ]

Ngayong ang syang IKALAWANG ARAW1,

PRACTICE ng mga ASPAC Parents, pero KWIDAW—

Merong ganadong darating ng MAS MAAGA2

Magandang pangitain ito, bilang pagpapakita ng TIYAGA…

 

 

Ang sabi nga ng mga MATATANDA,

Na tunay na kumita na nang swak na PRUWEBA…

Kung walang TIYAGA, ay walang NILAGA…

Tugon naman ni TESS: “Nasa DIYOS ang AWA, nasa TAO ang GAWA!”…

 

 

Bilang pangalawang POINTERS sa mga BEGINNER…

Dapat pag-aralan ang SERVICE o TENDER3;

Yan ang tawag sa PAG-UMPISA ng SET4

Pag-aralan ng HUSTO at huwag PONG MABUWISET5

 

 

Ganito ang dapat para ang SERVICE ay SWAK,

Hawakan nang mabuti ang COCK6 sa may PAKPAK;

Hawak ng KALIWA, at KANAN naman ang syang RACKET,

Pitikin7 lamang ito para dumausdos OVER THE NET!

 

 

 

Ang sabi nga ay ganito mga PANYERAS y PANYEROS…

HALF OF THE BATTLE ay siguradong LOST —

Kapag nagmintis ang SERVICE o kaya ay TENDER…

Kung ito’y KINAPOS o LUMAMPAS sa SECOND LINER8!

 

 

Pero HALF THE BATTLE is WON, IKA NGA…

Kapag SWAK ang SERVICE, bubuka ang BUNGANGA…

Nang KALABANG BEGINNER na mag mumukhang KAWAWA…

Kapag PUNTOS na naman …malapit na GANTIMPALA!

 

 

Kaya pati si DOC ANDY TAN9 ,

Minabuting mauna sa PRACTICE ng PALIGSAHAN…

Makikita sa PROFILE PHOTO10 sa itaas PO NITO…

Aba ang galing ng FORMA, parang ‘di BAGITO11!

 

Kaya dapat magdatingan ang mga BEGINNER,

Para maganda ang LARO lalo na ang TENDER12;

Kasi nga kapag sa TENDER ay PUMALPAK…

KNOCK-OUT13 tiyak kayo dahil tuwina’y PALPAK!!!!

 

==================================================================

[Legend: 1 – Today, April 22, 2017 is the SECOND DAY of practice sessions for the scheduled FIRST EVER ASPAC BADMINTON TOURNAMENT.
2 – The PRACTICE SESSION is set to start at 4:00 PM today (April 22, 2017), but earnest ASPAC parents who want to learn more, may opt to come as early as 3:00 PM to start their personalized practice.
3 – SERVICE or TENDER is the act of a badminton player to bring the SHUTTLECOCK into the opposite court to start the play.
4 –  SET refers to a BADMINTON PLAY.
5 – Doing the SERVICE may become a BORING thing for a BEGINNER to practice as it would be a monotonous skein of bringing the SHUTTLECOCK seamlessly (to be repeated over and over again) into the opposite court via the striking of the COCK with the PADDLE or RACKET. So, please do not get BORED…Huwag pong ma-BUWISET!
6 – COCK refers to the SHUTTLECOCK.
7 – PITIKIN is a term used in BADMINTON of serving the COCK via a mere quick movement of the hand which handles the PADDLE by means of a quick hand-twisting movement from the waist.
8 – The SHUTTLECOCK upon the SERVICE of the same must not go beyond the SECOND LINE of the opposite court.
9 – DOC ANDY TAN is Doctor Alejandro K. Tan who is the incumbent President of the Ateneo Schools Parents Council (“ASPAC”). It was indeed a distinct and humble show of leadership when Doc Andy appeared at the FIRST DAY of PRACTICE SESSION on April 15, 2017.
10 – The PROFILE PHOTO referred to is the PHOTO introducing this FUN-RHYME BLOG.
11-  BAGITO is a Filipino slang which means BEGINNER.
12 – TENDER is another term for SERVICE.
13 – The TOURNAMENT will use the KNOCK-OUT system of ELIMINATION meaning, ONE LOSS would spell exclusion from the sequel plays. But not in the BOODLE FIGHT certainly.]
