Good News and Bad News

I have good news and I have bad news.

First, the bad news: We’re going on a two-week hiatus. There will be no classes on the following dates:

  • Monday, August 26
  • Monday, September 2

The good news is that these two sessions are being canceled for a great cause: The facility where we practice — the Brea Congregational United Church of Christ — will be using our training space to host its homeless rehabilitation program as part of an interfaith shelter network. The goal of the program is to help the temporarily homeless transition to self-sufficiency. 

I have helped this program in the past and it’s incredibly fulfilling. You can volunteer to cook meals for the shelter guests during these two weeks or help the church in many other ways. If you’re interested in volunteering, please reach out to the church by clicking here or calling (714) 529-3014.

We’ll be back to training on Monday, September 9. Please mark in your calendars. And as always you can get up-to-date info at our online schedule here.

No Class in Honor of Memorial Day

There will be no class next Monday as we will be on hiatus in honor of Memorial Day. Please have a safe and meaningful long weekend with your family.

We’ll be back swinging sticks on Monday, June 3. Please mark your calendars now! As always, you can check our calendar here for the most up-to-date info on training dates and times. 

And be sure to keep practicing at home. We’ve been practicing consistently for five months now and your progress has been inspiring!
