Champions at international and local levels have gone through their doors, though not before starting out with required introductory and beginner classes.

Customer Reviews

More fun than I thought it would be. Great facility and they teach to all levels.
Pierre P. · May 3, 2016
The first day of class involves a discussion of the different types of Olympic weapons followed by a warm-up, so wear comfortable clothes, tennis shoes and bring water on the first day of class. We learned the basic salute, stances, how to advance and retreat. We learned about the protective clothing worn and why it is required and how to apply them. It was enjoyable and I look forward to the remaining classes.
