What we’ll do

Choose your weapon! When you first come in, you'll be asked whether you'd rather train with the longsword of the European knight (think Game of Thrones) or the katana of the Japanese samurai (Kill Bill).

What else you should know

Wear comfortable gym clothes. Classes are held barefoot (or you may wear socks with grips on the bottom). Try to arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled class time.
