Outdoor classes return starting July 6th 2021!
As before, they will take place at the Highland Park Community Association in the field just east of the building, and at our regular schedule of Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7PM MDT.
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:
For the safety of everyone involved, we will be requiring all outdoor class participants to have at least ONE vaccination before joining the class. .
As a temporary measure, we will be asking class participants to sign a confidential card that verifies their compliance with this requirement. We will be providing a link
If there are underlaying medical conditions that prevent a member or participant from receiving a vaccine shot, this will need to be communicated to us prior to joining a class.
Class waivers and Codes of Conduct have been updated. As such, new participants and returning members alike will need to read and sign these documents at the beginning of their first class
As everyone will be at least partially vaccinated, masks will not be required for paired drills and exercises. However, we do understand if some participants would feel more comfortable wearing masks in these situations. As such, everyone is encouraged to bring masks and wear them should their partners request it. If one person requests a mask but the other does not wish to wear one, we will simply accommodate both parties by pairing them with new partners.
As always, if you are feeling sick or unwell we would ask that you cease class participation for the safety of others.
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) = Self Defense Concepts and Messer fighting. For at least the start of summer classes, we will be combining our MCS techniques with Messer training to start rebuilding the skill set around both.
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.
We are unlikely do be doing any grappling given that we are outdoors, but we will still be including light combatives.
Our usual designated “free play” in both classes is not allowed for the time being.
Sabreforce Sundays (TEMPORARILY ON HOLD)
Sabreforce meets once a month on a Sunday afternoon. Follow Sabreforce on Facebook for notices on meetings!
$100.00 / Month for Access to All Classes (Every week Tuesday and Thursday)
$25.00 to drop in either on Tuesday or Thursday
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 for covid-19 precautions we are an 18+ only club)
