Nice welcoming and clear explanation on how things will work. My son has started the first lessons and he enjoys the coach and spending one fun hour with other kiddos.

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.
