We're excited to officially announce that Da'Mon Stith is coming to Forteza in early July to teach a two-day workshop on East African martial arts!! Specifically, we will be looking at the double-edged sickle-sword, or shotel, of East Africa, used with a small, hide hand shield, similar to the European buckler. Da'Mon's classes on Barbary saber and Ethiopian shotel at WMAW '17 were a huge success, being among the most popular classes there. His classes are fun, dynamic, educational, and will also give you a great workout. Da'Mon and the shotel was recently featured on History's Deadliest Warriors, and now you can experience this exciting, martial tradition for yourself!
