The staff was very friendly and professional. However, anyone interested in this class needs to know it is quite physically demanding. After my first practice my arms were sore and carrying things was a bother. Lastly, absolutely do not feel intimidated; especially if you are a girl or are not very athletic. Its very fun, learning an art of murder!

The class was fine and the instructor was very good really smart and enthusiastic. There were a couple of helpers there who were also good. The owner of the place was not very friendly however and could use some customer service skills, which ruined the experience somewhat. I wouldn't say that to his face though - what with it being a sword fighting class and all.

The class was interesting and informative, but my brother and I felt the entire time like the instructor resented us being there. He seemed annoyed that we weren't remember everything and executing it perfectly. A shame; it could have been extremely enjoyable.
