I'm scouting out a park to do some outside classes this Summer. East River Flats Park was where I first taught when I moved here and it has the qualities of being open and private.

I look forward to training with you outside this year, just need a little more warmth! Thank you again for making my teacher's visit such a heartfelt and fun occasion. He will be back soon!
