December Class Specials - Cutting with the Longsword

Due to the Holidays we will have 2 special classes in December.

This Sunday's class is a special one as we will be focusing on cutting mechanics. We do this by using sharp longswords in combination with tatami (grass mats). While the class itself is included as a standard class there is an additional cost for the mats. Each mat is $5 and generally up to 4 are recommend for someone's first time cutting. Please contact us by Thursday if you will be attending and how many mats you would like. Class will be held at Serafin's home in Oak Park and I will send the address once you've confirmed attendance.

If you have any questions please let me know.
