Sunday December 8, 2013

Location: North Hills Park, Raleigh

Rain Backup: Marsh Creek Community Center, 3050 N. New Hope Rd., Raleigh, NC, 27629

Plan: Sunday will be a bit flexible. The goal is to start late morning (assuming people will be up late). We have the following on the schedule:

• Montante Introduction and Demo (James Clark, 1-2 hours)

• Inter-group roundtable - A chance for people from different groups to exchange ideas about their own interpretations, training methods, and drills. We'll be sharing some of the drills we've found useful from our new curriculum and hope to hear about some of the training ideas other people have as well. The plan is to keep this light so people who want to drive home afterwards don't have to re-shower. For those who don't mind a more intense workout, some of us will be available for sparring, as well.
