It is hard to believe that the Guild’s new home at Forteza Fitness, Physical Culture and Martial Arts has already been open for seven months! From what began as a cement floor that looked a bit like the Grand Canyon, chipping paint with half a century of grime and dirt, and plain brick walls, our homage to a 19th c salle and gymnasium has come a long way.
Now our final step, the Clubhouse project has begun! Forteza Fitness and Martial Arts is creating the ultimate “Adventurers’ Club” salon, and we’d really appreciate your help. Watch the video, check out the rather cool contributor rewards and, if you are so moved, help out. N.B. that the Indiegogo “share” tools make it very quick and easy to share the project page via Facebook, Google+ and Twitter, or to embed or send the page info by email.
The Forteza clubhouse will feature:
- a boutique library of both antique and contemporary books on Western martial arts, fencing, fitness and related topics
- an art gallery showcasing rare, original edition 19th century newspaper prints of combat sport athletes, historical fencers and gymnasts
- a multi-media learning center featuring WiFi, training DVDs and a discussion lounge and research area
- we cannot stress this enough, a secret passage entrance …
