So, my buddy who I practice medieval longsword with has finally gone over to the dark side. 🙂
He joined my other friend’s academy as an instructor, and they’ll be charging money for classes in it.
Daniel Brown founded the academy, and it’s a good place, well run, if a bit out of the way for me. I went there last night for a first class, and to be Chris’ tackling dummy, so to speak, because he doesn’t really know the who or what he was going to face for the class, and he figured a familiar face would help him stay on track and feel less outnumbered.
He did quite well, and knows his stuff and would’ve done just fine without me there.
So, I dunno, I may sign up. Well, I probably will. I’ve been needing to get back in the swing (heh, heh) of the fencing club kind of thing, because as much as I enjoy working out, due to time and play constraints, I don’t get to “play” that much with others (except for moto rides, which are great).
I would love to just go and grab some folks and throw frisbee for an hour, or canoe or such, but my schedule makes it somewhat difficult, and the fact that a lot of my friends are quite far from me at this time.
My friends Nancy and Walt mentioned they’d like to take up tennis for an activity, and would I like to join in. I might, though I know very little about it, and it means trekking way out there (yet again). We’ll see, though I will probably grab racket at Play It Again Sports or something anyway.
