-- Pirate Sword Play -- Arcata Recreation's New Class!

Arcata, CA, September 20, 2019 – The City of Arcata Recreation Division is excited to offer a new class for children and adults called, “Pirate Sword Play” beginning in October. Pirate Sword Play is a martial art masked in multifaceted skills and knowledge applicable to any age. It offers great mental stimulation, creative expression and physical activity. This class will model itself after the life of a pirate in 1690. Life onboard a ship or on pirate isle will be the setting settings for melees and role-playing games. Using role-play and sword play together will create more diversified challenges, making this pirate crew reenactment a one-of-a-kind class experience. Classes will begin on Wednesday, October 2 at the D Street Neighborhood Center, located at 1301 D Street. An intergenerational class for participants age 9 years and up will be offered on Wednesdays from 5 to 7 p.m. A class for adults, age 18 years and older will be offered on Wednesdays from 7 to 9 p.m. Participants may enroll for a monthly fee of $30 for Arcata residents and $41 for non-residents.
