Have you ever wanted to learn how to crack a whip like Indiana Jones or Zorro? Then come on down to our Bullwhip classes. These monthly practice sessions are held every 3rd Sunday of each month from 5 pm to 7 pm, at the School of Acrobatics New Circus Arts in Seattle Washington. Classes are free, but donations are gladly accepted for use of the space. Classes are taught by Sifu DeJesus and assistant coach Lyn Yancha. For more information, see the "Snapdragons Bullwhip Enthusiasts Group" web page. http://snapdragonswhips.webs.com/
"Beginner's introduction to knife throwing" is currently on a private lesson basis (individual or small group). These lessons are at your home and Sifu DeJesus provides the targets and knives. Participants must be at least 10 years old to participate. Minors must have signed parental authorization form for this class, which is available through Sifu DeJesus. Instruction for up to 2 individuals is $40 for first session (2 hours) and $10 thereafter for coached practice (1 hour). Groups of 3 to 6 people are $30 per person for the first session and $5 per person thereafter for coached practice (1 hour)
Sifu DeJesus is a 4th Dan (black belt level) coach in the the art of "Fukiya Do", ("Way of the blowgun" , with "Fukiya" meaning "blowgun") as taught by Shihan Hironori Higuchi. This isn't just your "point and shoot" type of thing...instead, FukiyaDo introduces the the proper stance, posture, breathing and targeting methods needed for accurate blowgun shooting. Beginners are always welcome to learn, and we have a few blowguns for beginners to start with. However, if you choose to continue with the activity, you are responsible for purchasing your own blowgun, darts and accessories through Sifu DeJesus.
We are members of the United States Blowgun Association (USBA), an affiliate to the International Fukiyado Association (IFA). Members may apply for official ranking within the USBA, much like belt ranks in martial arts. All rankings are based on final scores in "competition" events that are held periodically at our studio. Members must register as members of the USBA before they may apply for national ranking.
