Heh I'm drawn to Gleason for a couple of reasons I just feel like I'll be stuck waiting a while to actually get active there as I don't presently have transportation. But given his knowledge of sword use and my prior training in sword I think it would be pretty cool.
Hmm maybe I'll just take a closer look at how I could get over there.
The Somerville location is on several bus lines and within good weather walking distance from the Orange line. I'd recommend at least going over to watch a couple of classes and talk to some of the students. (Tell them I sent you -- most of the yudansha, at least, should remember me.)
