Wilderness Trail Demo - September 18th
We will be performing a demo at the Wilderness Trail Festival in Christiansburg. Everyone is encouraged to participate, regardless of rank, to help us grow and promote our school! We will be practicing at 10 am on August 28th, September 11th & 18th. A sign-up sheet will be posted on the peg board under the Senior Head Instructor Belt.

Help Us Grow
We are always looking for ways to get out in front of new groups of people. If you like the program and could help, it would be most appreciated. Some of the things we are trying are demo classes for the John Newman Academy and a self-defense class with Montgomery County Parks and Rec. We would love to get in front of young people any chance we can get. Our target group is children 6 - 10 years old, we can also do classes for older students and adults groups. If you have a connection at any of the local organizations, like private and church schools, boy and girls scouts, or any other group we would love for you to make the introduction. Be sure to mention that we do most of these intro classes for free.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please see Mr. Petersen. Thanks!
