What we're doing at Duello right now

Wondering what we're up to over the holiday? This:


Yup that's right we're wrapping Academie Duello in celophane.

This is part of a project to refinish the hardwood on our main training floor.  Thank you to everyone who has helped contribute to this project financially at our Christmas fundraiser and by lending a hand.  We'll be in the studio over the next 2 days and at the end of it we look forward to having a beautiful new shiny (or rather satin!) finish.
