Summer Weapons Retreat 11 – August 7-11, 2019, at the Emrich Center in Brighton, Michigan!


Polaris’s Summer Weapons Retreat covers five days in which adult participants come together to focus on martial arts, build community, and push themselves to learn and grow.

Both new and experienced martial artists are encouraged to attend.  New Students focus on our white belt track, learning the basics of knife, sword and shield sparring, and melee separate from our upper level Students. By Saturday of the retreat, new students are fully integrated with the upper belts for workshops and melee activities.

Returning students continue their learning with Polaris at the camp with workshops, sparring & drill lessons, goal time, video analysis, and melees. Evening activities include various kinds of sparring and melees to encourage students to apply the lessons and techniques they learned throughout the day.
