We are still adding occasional classes, but all the class descriptions and class preregistration forms for each class are up, click on the Class Description tab at the bottom of the schedule, the links for preregistration are at the end of each description.  We will still accept class registrations after the deadline, but some classes have small limits, so to avoid disappointment, preregister now!

Classes begin at 9:30 am, and continue in 50 min blocks with 10 min breaks until 4:20 pm, with a break at 11:30 for morning court. Registrants are encouraged to preregister for classes to ensure their spot, especially those with class limits or teacher’s materials, otherwise classes will be filled on a first come, first served basis at the gate.

New to this EKU are two marshall streams, one for heavy fighting, one for rapier. We have a large indoor gym with locker rooms and showers, as well as a large soccer field, should the day be suitable for outdoor combat.
