No Classes today 02/04/22… and other stuff!

No Classes Today at the YMCA

Due to the weather, the YMCA will be closed all day.  I’ve decided NOT to do virtual classes today either, so please enjoy the day off.  Kids, if you are old enough, please help with snow removal. 🙂

Trial Weapons Class!

We have enough people interested to start our weapons class in March!  But I thought it would be a good idea to do a trial class for everyone who might be interested as well.  So, for those of you who have already let me know and are on the list, and for those who are still unsure.  Please remember that this is a class for 12 years of age and up and space in limited.  Those of you who expressed interest are guaranteed spots which leave only 4 spots open.  If you cannot attend or are interested in attending, please let me know ASAP.

  • The trial class will be February 22nd from 6:15pm to 7pm.
  • Please note that this is an In-Person class ONLY and will have no virtual classes attached to it.  All the normal Covid Safety Precautions will be in effect.

Students in the trial class will be learning “Single Hand Sword” techniques. These techniques and basics translate to multiple types of single handed swords including the Korean saber and are very versatile.  The single handed sword is often learned along side a shield / buckler and our students will be learning that as well.  

Again, please let me know if you are unable to come (those of you on my list), if you are interested in coming or if you have any questions etc.

Here is the current list of Special Achievements I am leaning towards.  You’ll see that some of you may have already earned an achievement!  Munsay!  I’m not going to go into details on how to earn each one, but some will be special tests, while others will be a matter of time & effort and or a certain number of events attended.
