Team work makes the dream work!
It's a team effort to do all the awesome things that we do with the ACW! In NYC, specifically, besides having the national level of the ACW involved, the Manhattanville Community Center is the facility where we do all of our training, and Draft Barn Beach Coney Island is where we do all of our armored tournaments in NYC. Here are the leadership, facilities, and organizations that help make the NYC ACW experience a reality:
Draft Barn Beach
This is where we have our armored tournaments and practices during the warm months. We fight there every Saturday (during the warm season) at 6:30 PM. The location is 3029 Stillwell Avenue in Coney Island, Brooklyn. We are right next to the go-karts! Please come to watch us there if you'd like to see what it's like when we fight in full-steel armor with steel weapons!
Manhattanville Community Center
Our 100% free classes are at this location and they are every Tuesday evening from 6:30-8:30 PM. Anyone and everyone is welcome to come. Just bring some exercise clothes and we'll provide the rest! It's a standard martial arts class combined with armored and weaponized martial arts forms. The address is 530 West 133rd Street (between Broadway and Amsterdam). Feel free to bring yourself, and children, and friends and family, and whomever you'd like! All are welcome to participate in this fun, engaging experience! The classes are all about consent and are no pressure. You can take the content in the classes at your own pace!
