In the depths of winter, we will nourish the fire within! The day we will include weapons related workshops, mini-lessons, and both melee and bear pit sparring. In the morning we will meet at Steppingstone School (30250 Grand River, Farmington Hills, Mi 48336). In the evening we will move to Wellspring for stew and potluck, a fire in the fireplace, time to hang out, and a movie. $35.00 tuition includes instruction, lunch, and stew. Join us for an awesome day of fellowship and fighting! E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Events start at 10am and go into the night.
Like with last year’s viking theme, we will draw on both historical and legendary aspects of the tales of Arthur, Merlin, the Lady of the Lake, and the knights good and true, to focus and inspire the weapons training, tactical exercises, and personal development activities of the retreat.
