How to teach children

Posted by in Blog on June 17, 2015

Good news!  We’re growing fast. So to accommodate our many new students and to ensure classes do not get too big, we’ll be adding more classes, starting in March. While we’re still finalizing our schedule, there will new Beginners Classes on Tuesday evenings and another Open Class (all ranks) on Wednesday evenings – meaning you’ll
