DUE TO COVID-19 RISKS, CLASS STRUCTURE HAS BEEN ALTERED TO ENFORCE SAFETY MEASURES.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE CURRENT COVID-19 PROCEDURE WE HAVE IN PLACE (effective Nov. 3, 2020):
Every individual will be expected to go through a covid self-health check before entering class. If you are feeling unwell in any way, please do not enter the building and risk the health of others.
Enter the building with a face mask on and keep it properly worn around your nose and mouth at all times, with exception of when drinking water. Be actively mindful of your hand sanitization and how you interact with objects others may touch.
A Fencing mask is required to allow everyone full engagement in the partner drills. As we cannot lend any gear at this time, any attendee must bring in their own fencing mask. It’s up to every individual to purchase their own, but we may be able to sell off some of the old club masks, if needed and there is a possible fit.
Keep a minimum 6 ft. distance from each other. There is a risk that distance will shorten when people are engaged in partner drills.
Must have appropriate indoor training shoes. Work boots are not allowed.
We will remind everyone to practice good hygiene and enter class in clean training clothes.
We expect any participant at the Forge to respect and follow these above measures, as well as the Code of Conduct.
Tuesday | Maverick Combat Systems (MCS)
19:00-21:00 (MST) = Counter Blade Concepts, Hand to Hand Combatives, and Self Defense (Since we can’t train in close-contact with each other, training has been modified around solo boxing and unarmed drills and single-hand weapon techniques, such as messer, Polish sabre, with partner and solo drills)
FIGHT TEAM ON HOLD (21:00-22:00 = FIGHT TEAM/sparring (Scheduled every other week. This is recommended for those who are motivated to get into tournament fighting)
Thursday: Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA)
19:00-21:00 = Primarily German longsword, with foundational skill training and Ringen.
(While we can’t grapple, or close-in on attacks, there is still a lot we can train on the longsword with partner and solo drills)
Our usual designated “free play” in both classes is not allowed for the time being.

Sabreforce meets once a month on Sunday afternoon. Follow Sabreforce on Facebook for notices on meetings!

Whether you want to swing a light sword, short sword, or learn to practically defend yourself in the street, do not be shy! We’re just a bunch of nerds who get together to practice how to hit and not be hit in many different ways! We welcome all, no matter your background, or experience. (Sorry, currently during covid-19 precautions we are an 18+ only club)
