Just some quick updates, you may have seen some news about the riot that occured in Downtown Fayetteville. The riot remained mostly centered around the Market House and the businesses immediately surrounding the area. The All-American Fencing Academy and our neighbors did not sustain any damage or vandalism.
Also! An update to YouTube now allows me to create “chapters” in the video so you can easily scroll to the different parts of the class!

Remember, starting next week, we’ll be doing some online live classes. I’m still trying to figure out the format, but after talking with other coaches, we’ll probably be focusing a lot on warm-ups and footwork. Maybe a little on Bladework, but we’ll see.
We’ll most likely use Google Meet, so be prepared with a Google account. More details to come!
