Sword cutting 24 Jun 2011

Due to popular demand we are planning another day of sword cutting for adults only. This time we will attempt to have as many people cut as possible. To that end you are invited to purchase your own mats, if you are accurate with your cutting each roll should give you 4 cuts. A roll of 3 will cost you £8.00 and a roll of 4 will be £10.00. It may be a little less depending how many we order, we can settle any difference on the day. You get to use my sword for free so please be careful with it. You may purchase as many rolls as you like. However…….. this must be on the understanding that if you have not cut before and I feel that it would be unsafe for you to do so then I may ask you not to cut, in which case we will try to sell your mats to other students but there will be no guarantee we can do this. Also if I feel you may damage or break the sword, again I may ask you not to cut.

Dont let that put you off, lots of people cut last time with no problems I am sure you will be fine. You need to place your order for mats before 13 Jun 2011

The cutting will be available all day long from 1.00 pm to 7.30 pm in Dojo 2. A member of staff will need to be in attendance. We will also be cutting at the end of each class.
