Monthly long staff seminar focuses on the 6 foot long staff and spear.
The seminar is 1.5 hours of instruction and is divided into 30 minute sections–
Section 1: Handling, Twirls, and Physical Skills.
Section 2: Solo and Partner drills.
Section 3: Combat drills and sparring.
Drills are level appropriate to minimize risk of physical injury. Students are obviously expected to practice outside of the seminar. Skills can also be augmented with private lessons.
Each Seminar Pack includes 3 sessions which must be taken in a 12 month period from the date of purchase. Water Mountain will provide a minimum of 9 sessions during a year to meet this requirement. Students may purchase a new package on completion of the prior package, and can take up to all the available seminar sessions in a year.
