    I really wanted to do this but couldn't do both our feast and the class. Will there be another class or will the follow up be a good starter class as well? Also, is there an age restriction? My daughter actually expressed an interest in this which I thought was an excellent idea. She is 14 and taller than me, ha.

    Several of the participants asked about a follow up self-defense seminar. If anyone has constructive feedback on what they would like to see in the next seminar; feel free to e-mail or post a reply.

    Good Morning, some last minute information. The Karate school is located along Route 30 about 5 miles west of New Oxford, in between Gettysburg and New Oxford. ** Please use the side entrance when entering the school.
    The class will be pretty informal so if you have questions ask away and feel free to laugh at each other!
    You can come dressed in work out attire or change at the school your choice. ** They have nice changing rooms.
    Note *** I may not be there until 1:00 , but the insturctors are up to speed on the event. See you all there.
    If you have question you can call my cell:[masked]

    I'm interested in going, but not sure if I'd be able to stay if it runs over too late. What time do you think it would be done? I would need to be back in Hershey around 4:30. I would like to ask a few friends as well to see if any of them want to go. If they do, do they bring $1 for the meetup or just the $30 cash for class?

      Hi Angela, the class is scheduled to run until 3:00pm. I know the instructors, they will probably run over a few minutes; but you would be free to bail anytime. The class is fairly informal in structure.

      January 6, 2013

    • Erica

      The $1 meetup fee only applies when I am hosting a meetup so all they would have to bring is $30 cash for the class

      January 6, 2013

  • Troy

    Attendees planning on bringing guest please give a tentative head count by Friday morning, so we have some idea of how many to expect.

    Hi gang, I just updated some details.
    We will be working out in our bare feet due to the rubber floor of the school.
    Please show up 15 minutes early to allow for checking in and payment.

    I have changed the start time of the event to 12:45, the class will start as close as possible to 1:00. The extra 15 minutes is to process paperwork and prepare for the class.
    The instructors said you can show up as early as 30 minutes before class.

    Typically the instructors tend to run over the time limit if all are having fun, placing us just in time for a ealry diner.
    Li's Chinese Buffet is a few miles west of the school. If there is interest I can post an event for diner afterwards.
    ABC brewery is also reasonably close in Gettysburg. Drop me some comments if you have interest and preference.

    FYI, The school is very close to Gettysburg Pretzel Bakery. If you are interested they have some very good soft pretzels and if your timing is good you can catch them right out of the oven.
