Next Meetup

I am learning a new Machete short sword fighting system called Gatka
We will be going over some introductory machete and short sword concepts including basic Four box movement theory, strong side attacking, beginning flow drills, and "blocking with a wall of steel" concept. Anyone interested in basic weapons theory or looking to develop some skills with an extremely versatile tool that has seen live action in Military operations the world over, remote villages, and Collapsed societies this is for you. Or if you just want to prepare for the Zombie apocalypse :p When would everyone be available to come out?
