[quote="JP"]would love to see you folk training there one day :)

THE PLAN is to organise a vegan strenth gathering in the gym this summer - the german vegan strength, but its of course international, so when the date is set i will post about it :) (if it gets set, i dont know, only offering the venue).



LOVE IT. Keep me posted. I want to try to be there. Also, let me know if you want me to do a mace/Gada workshop there. I have a few places in Europe that have expressed interest (Netherlands, Norway), so I'm trying to figure out how to make it work with shipping the maces out and all.

Nice one Joni, can't wait to train there in a couple of weeks! This is gonna be the best gym EVER!

In the future, if there is suitable space or outside space in the summer, maybe a vegan martial arts / self-defence gathering / seminar would be cool.

JP, guess what!!!! I was asked to assist at a kettlebell event in Italy in June. I'm thinking I will fly into Berlin for a few days and then go to Italy from there. Would LOVE to see your gym and chat!!!

Can't wait!! I will let you know specifics as soon as I book my tickets (today or tomorrow). Trying to figure out if it makes more sense to fly or take the train from Vicenza to Berlin.

OK, I just got my plane tickets! I'm weighing my options as to whether I can take the train there overnight from Vicenza on the Sunday or if I should fly there from Venice. Either way, I'll be in Berlin from Monday, June 16, until early morning on Thursday, June 19. SO excited!!!!
