Fight-night Mini-focus!

Exciting news for those who’ve ever wondered “I wonder if I should bring my X to Open Floor”; we’ll be introducing a mini-focus to Open Floors! 

It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while: a regular day for everyone who wants to practice with, say, longswords, to come out. We’re going to reserve off some space for participants so they’re sure to have room to play. 

We’re still in the process of figuring out what weapon will be on which Friday, but, we got our first taste this past Friday when Roland did his Rank Exam Grind with rapiers. Everyone got a chance to take on all comers and then get some valuable feedback on their form. 

Stay tuned for the all the details and the schedule!
