February Newsletter - Renovations Ongoing

19 Feb 2021 9:00 PM | Marla Desat (Administrator)

Here's what's coming up at Ottawa Swordplay:

  • Renovations Continue!
  • Online Classes
  • Winter Sale Exchanges

Painting and Drywall and Flooring, oh my!

The significant renovations we began in January are continuing. Check out the great photos below! The old gear storage room is gone, replaced by more floor space for fencing. We're redesigning the way loaner gear is stored, and making it easier to access the bathroom. And the whole place is getting a new coat of paint!

We're making steady progress, but the work is ongoing, so we are not resuming in-person classes yet. We expect the work to continue throughout February and possibly into March. We'll keep you updated on when in-person classes will return - both indoor and outdoor.


Online Classes and YouTube

Our latest video series explores the four main guards of our system. You can watch the video on The Tower right now, and the next ones will be released on Tuesdays over the coming weeks. On Thursdays, the recording of our livestream class from the previous weekend also goes up on Youtube.

Our livestream classes, held at 1 pm on Saturdays via Discord are ongoing. If you've attended any of our drop-in classes, or if you have signed up as an online swordplay member, you have access to our private Discord Server. Check your email for an invitation. If you're not an online member yet, you can sign up at It's a great way to support us and to keep practicing from home.

Exchanges from Winter Sale

Need to exchange the shirt or mask you bought during our winter sale for a different size? Please send us an email to arrange an appointment. We will be happy to help you but must plan around our ongoing renovations. Thank you for understanding!
