We're a new group for now, still getting established, but we're currently working on our first set of Elephante students and simultaneously testing out a new in-development curriculum on self defense, in addition to our main work with Sword in Two Hands. For now those are our areas of focus, though of course we'll be bringing in other weapons as our students advance.
"Soft" Rawlings are our standard.
HEMA-style reinforced masks, with medieval gambesons, gauntlets, etc.
COSTS & FEES
Before sparring, students must become members of the SSG, Inc., which is $35/year.
TIME & PLACE
Our students are relative new, so focus is on the basics. We start with a brief discussion of how training has been going and what we'd like to see in the near future. We then officially begin the lesson with a review of plays and techniques from previous weeks. After that, we build on old knowledge with new -- learning new plays or techniques, or expanding understanding of ones that are already known. Both portions include drills and repetitions to build muscle memory as well as focused corrections to help students improve their form. We finish with either slow sparring (will upgrade to fast sparring when we have a better training space) or working on the new self-defense module.
