I swung by Mike B's dojo yesterday. I didn't get to do much fencing, instead they wanted me to do lessons.
I kind of wish they had mentioned what they wanted before I came. I winged it without a prepared lesson plan or anything.
I ordered a coaching jacket + epee arm. I like fencing more than lesson giving but if they're going to have me do that during the summer I'll put some basic lessons together and have the right gear for it.

The electrician came by today. The idea was that he would fix up the wiring so that I could use my dryer.
