Greetings, all manner of sword folk.

This week at Crossing Fight School, many of us will be in Georgia fighting our way to victory. There are a few of you who will still be in the area this Sunday, however, and since it has been requested, the venue will be open for free sparring, or whatever else you may have in mind.

Although there is no formal class planned, our very own John Thomas will be in charge of running things in our absence. Please pay him all the respect and attention you would to any other person instructing or otherwise leading class.

For those of you who haven’t noticed yet, John has come a long way in his training in a relatively short period of time. He combines terrific hand work, speed, stability, and overall athleticism in his fighting, and is indeed a formidable opponent. He’s mentioned he wants to open up his own school after his transfer out of NJ, so this will give everyone who attends a chance to try something new.

Enjoy this Sunday with John, and I’ll see you all on the 19th.

This just in … JT has a Meyer lesson in store for you all on Sunday. Enjoy! I can’t wait to hear all about it.
