What we're about

We teach a team based sword martial art that focuses on group tactics and leadership. Membership is free. We use bamboo practice shinais as our base equipment, in addition to shields, spears, and other practice weapons. Creating and executing a plan for your team helps to develop real world leadership skills. If you are interested in learning a new skill, improving teamwork and leadership capabilities, or are looking for a fun way to exercise, this is a group for you. We are part of the Sword of the Spirit organization with fields in California and Georgia. Learn more about our rules, ranks, and martial art at http://www.sotscm.org/rules

Our organization is free to join and I provide all equipment needed to participate, however, here are some items you may want to bring or be aware of:

* Eye protection: Eye protection is mandatory and we will have glasses available, but if you have something you’d prefer to wear please bring it

* Gloves: Gloves are not mandatory, but highly encouraged. Loner gloves are available, but if you can, bringing some that fit your hand size. A glove with some knuckle guards is useful

* Shoes: We fight outside, on concrete, grass, and dirt. Closed toed shoes with grip is recommended

* Clothing: Whatever you feel comfortable to move in for exercise is suggested. Freedom of movement is important

* Water: It gets warm, bring something to keep hydrated
