COSTS & FEES
Before sparring, students must become members of the SSG, Inc., which is $35/year.
Currently none. May change if we get our own site.
TIME & PLACE
Practice starts with a discussion on how training and "at home" practice has been going. Then we move into some warm up activities and "games" before drilling fundamentals. We typically end with learning something new to work on for the following week.
We are not currently doing contact sparing at practice but are hoping to move in that direction soon!
