Sword Training

***Our Sunday Battles may start up again in 2021 depending on what is possible and safe for our community, considering how the pandemic has affected public health concerns and the way our programs operate. We will announce the restart here on our website, and on our Facebook page, so keep an eye on those for updates. We welcome you to reach out by email with thoughts or concerns about beginning to gather again. But for now, all programs remain cancelled.***

What:

Many players in all the different after school programs, and attendees to all of our events on Sundays and at festivals, have expressed that they would like to have more opportunities to play the game during the week and have direct training on how to improve their skills. Sword Training is our answer to those requests, with an hour devoted to game play followed by an hour devoted to specific skill training catered to each player.

When:

Mondays and Wednesdays from 4-6pm throughout the year. Players can attend both hours or only attend the first or second if they choose, with 4-5pm focused on game play, and 5-6pm  focused on skill training. If enough interest is shown on Mondays, we would like to expand the program to every day of the week as a martial arts dojo!

Where:

68 Kentucky Dr, Asheville NC, 28806. This is our training facility in West Asheville, where we also live and make/sell gear. We have an outdoor ampitheater-style field space, as well as an indoor warehouse practice space for use during inclement weather. When you show up, please follow the signs to drive up the driveway, drop off students and gear, and then exit through another driveway.

Cost: 

The first class is free! After that the classes cost $10/hour per student, or $20 per whole class, and we ask for monthly commitments and payments. That means that we collect payment for the whole month of classes on the first class of the month.
