Ok - We have the minimum number registered for the intermediate class to run at Edgemoor Parks and Rec. Yay, Air Conditioning!!!!!!!We will be in the gym tonight, 6:30-8pm, and in the club room for the rest of the session (unless the gym is not rented - they've been renting it out since we haven't been having classes) given our very small class size this session. If we get back to our usual class size in fall session, we'll be back in the gym.If anyone wants to drop in for a foil/epee/sabre/rapier lesson who hasn't been in our classes before, you will need your own mask/jacket/glove. Loaner foil/epee/sabre are available. If you want rapier or rapier/dagger lessons, please let me know in advance, as I don't always bring a rapier. Given our class size this session, it won't be hard to fit 1-2 extra people in for 15-25 minute individual lessons.Parks and Rec charges a floor fee of $4/night for people who aren't enrolled - payable to the person in the office, not to me. ...

Sword School Wichita - Sala d'Armi
We haven't posted lately - but it is time for an update. Spring session is cancelled in full. Summer session beginners class is cancelled, but the intermediate is going to remain in the books, at least for now. I'm not yet interested in any of the risks that might be entailed with loaner equipment, aside from foils that can easily be wiped down with an alcohol wipe and then re-oiled.I am hopeful that our core intermediate group will be all or nearly all vaccinated by the time summer session starts. I do not know what the social distancing rules will look like for summer session - and that will likely make my final decision for summer session, but it isn't quite time for that yet.As always, anyone who has their own equipment and who is interested in scheduling private lessons, outdoors, weather permitting, please send me a message through the page or on my personal facebook, and we can set something up. ...
