CHILDREN'S CHINESE SWORDSMANSHIP SEMINAR.
Sword games will be one element of the fun we'll have at our Children's Chinese Swordsmanship Seminar. It will be taught by Linda Heenan, a student instructor of Scott Rodell.
There will be plenty of new material for more advanced students as well as the basics for beginners. If you find this after the end date, please enquire anyway, as these will be ongoing seminars - several throughout each year while this page is live.
We will cover all of these throughout the day:
If you have your own gear, bring it. We have plenty to share (except gloves) if you don’t. If you are borrowing fencing masks, bring a bandana to wear underneath.
There is no cost for this seminar but donations are accepted.
10:00am - 3:30pm
Bring your own lunch and also bring something to share with everyone for morning and afternoon snacks.
Please phone or email Linda when you are registering, for the exact location of the seminar.

Parents need to arrange transport home for their child. If they are to go with another parent, please provide a signed note to give permission.
Make sure you let us know if your child has any special needs such as food allergies. If they are asthmatic, make sure they have their own medication. We need written permission and instructions to administer any prescription medication during the day.
Water is better than sugary drinks for a day of sword games and skills like this.
