Covid-19 Update

We are working hard behind the scenes to bring some swordplay to you and keep our community connected.

Today we opened our online store. We only have a few items currently, but we will add more soon. We will be doing porch drop-off delivery on Tuesday every week.

We also have added a new video from our Virtual Open House to our YouTube Channel. Please watch and subscribe! More videos will be added regularly.

We've created a new Online-only membership, with three levels. We know that many people are in a pinch, so we are giving you the opportunity to support us and each other at level that makes sense for you. The subsidized membership is $10/month for those who are in a tight financial situation. The regular price is $25/month, and if you are in a position to help a little more, and offset the subsidized rate of others, we have a "generous rate" of $50/month. All three levels give the same access, so sign up at the level that is right for you.

The online memberships will give access to a new Discord server and extra video content. Additionally, if you are an online member in the Ottawa area and don't have a practice sword, let us know and we will porch-drop a wooden training sword for you to borrow. We will also hold weekly video chats and/or tournament video watch parties.

If you've already pre-paid for a membership for when we re-open, you automatically get all of the benefits of an online-only membership. If you prefer to switch to online-only, let us know and we will set that up.

We have more on the way soon, so watch this space!
