    Creating the Forteza Clubhouse

    Forteza Fitness and Martial Arts, a full-time WMA/HEMA studio in Chicago, is mounting a project to create a neo-Victorian style "clubhouse" including a lending library, art gallery of rare 19th century martial arts prints and a multi-media learning center (to be accessed by a secret passage). All details, including a project video, at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/cr...house?a=498944 .

    Please contribute if you feel so moved and feel free to share the link; updates will be made available over the next month and the organizers will also be inviting design and decor suggestions ...

    The bad news is that, in the course of fixing a minor technical problem on the Clubhouse project page, the host site "help department" managed to break the link given previously.

    The much better news is that the project raised 1/4 of its target within one day and that it can definitely be accessed via http://www.indiegogo.com/FortezaClubhouse .

    The Forteza Clubhouse campaign has hit the Indiegogo "Popular" list and is currently at $5025.00, with 18 days left to run.

    Here's the latest campaign update - an embedded sneak peek at two of the posters that contributors can receive as perks, inspired by the works of medieval Italian swordmaster Fiore dei Liberi:

    The posters are designed by Rebecca Cruz-Smith, a member of the Chicago Swordplay Guild.

    Next week's update will feature a new video ...

    We're now into the final week! All additional funding during this period will help us not only rehab. the room, but also outfit the Forteza Clubhouse into a truly unique venue.

    Towards that goal, we have created two brand-new perks - Private Student and Scrimatore - with options including seminars with Forteza Fitness instructors. Details may be found at the campaign website - http://www.indiegogo.com/FortezaClubhouse

    Your welcome! I will. I hope the clubhouse turns out well. Maybe one day I will be up that way and can stop by.

    Today is the last day to be part of creating the Forteza Clubhouse; a neo-Victorian library, lounge and art gallery (with a secret passage entrance) at the Forteza Fitness and Martial Arts WMA studio in Chicago. Check out the contributor perks, which include everything from Western martial arts history books and documentary DVDs to private lessons and seminars with Forteza instructors: http://igg.me/p/220836?a=498944 . The final countdown has begun ...
