We’re inching closer to August and hopefully the opportunity to reopen. We must remain cautiously optimistic, because the number of COVID-19 cases continues to increase. Even when we return, we must equally treat our environment as infectious and wear our masks (not just the fencing ones), wash and sanitize our hands, sanitize our surroundings, and stay home when you’re sick.
But first! Here is this week’s class: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw3AUGUKCZ8&t=179s

I haven’t asked before, but if there are any special request from our students about skills they can work on at home, I will be happy to try to come up with a demonstration and practice for any special requests, just send me an e-mail.
Not a whole lot of other updates. Remember we have private lesson sign ups. Most of the times have already been taken, but there are a few openings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Keep In Mind!
USA Fencing Membership renewals are coming around at the end of July. All of our students whether online or in class must be members of USA Fencing. That is a requirement for our insurance policies. Renew your membership at: https://www.usafencing.org/page/show/698114-individual-memberships
New face mask designs! We worked with CCE Headgear Plus to create a new face mask design that’s an homage to our AAFA logo. Both the logo masks and the modified logo are available to purchase online or visit their store: https://www.cceheadgearplus.com/product/aafa-navy-face-mask/299
