introduction to balisong flipping

hi my name is Oliver and I am 13 years old and i have been balisong flipping for 3 years i will teach you the basics of balisong flipping and maybe some history on balisong flipping students will learn a variety of tricks and trick lines(that is putting the tricks together) students will not be provided with a balisong they will have to bring their own. also i recommend all beginners use a a dull blade i use a dull blade too i will provide links down below to some balisong knifes for 10 dollars or less . A butterfly knife, also known as a Balisong, fan knife or Batangas knife, is a type of folding pocketknife that originated in the Philippines. Unlike the normal balisong, the balisong is not generally used for performing tricks, known as “flipping”, as the handles and blade maintain.

Pride Club

Pride Club provides a safe and welcoming space for middle-grade students who want to talk about issues related to sexual orientation or gender identity and expression. Pride Club GSA seeks to create greater awareness about the issues and unique experiences faced by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/ questioning (LGBTQ) community. Pride Club is a safe space for LGBTQ+ students and allies to learn more about issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community, LGBTQ history, influential activists, and different orientations and identities. Allies are welcome and encouraged to join so they can learn how to provide affirming and supportive allyship to friends, family, and classmates.

Pride Club is an officially registered middle school GSA club. A GSA is a student-led club focusing on LGBTQ identity, support, education, and advocacy. For LGBTQ students, GSAs provide a safe and affirming space, encourage leadership opportunities, and promote avenues for creating positive institutional change.

We will also be learning about LGBTQ+ representation in culture and media. We will be voting on a fun book or graphic novel to read and discuss as a group. We will be holding “movie night” viewing parties of movies and shows featuring LGBTQ+ characters.

We will be following the GLSEN 2022-2023 calendar as an outline for weekly discussion topics and activities. We also have some awesome special guests planned!

Everyone is welcome to come, regardless of identity.

The book that is chosen by the club will be provided and is included in the course cost.

World History

WORLD HISTORY is a series of cultures and empires that have come and gone. Travel back to the iconic time of the Pharaohs in Egypt and to the Barbarian sack of Rome, the rise of Chi Rho, to the bloody Inquisition, the holy wars of the Crusades and the fatal Black Death, the last days of Pompeii to ancient Inca, Mayan, and Aztec warriors, to the coronation of Charlemagne and the macabre Guillotine. These historic epochs, rich with the wicked and glorious alike, created the world we live in today.

Mission Possible: Team Building Games

Mission Possible: Teambuilding Challenges – Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come together to overcome the challenges set before you. Each week the team will be presented with a new scenario that will require teamwork, communication, creative problem solving, empathy, group decision making, persistence, and out of the box thinking to conquer. Challenges are expertly crafted and facilitated to help students grow and develop their skills and themselves with each activity. Not unlike biceps, these mental “muscles” require exercise and conditioning to become “strong”. Some activities will challenge participants physical, others mentally, and yet others emotionally. Most will engage all three.

Survival Skills

Learn the tricks and techniques used by people throughout history to survive the harshest conditions and provide for their needs. Early people and explorers wouldn’t have lasted long without these skills we’ll be trying our hands at such as fire starting, knot tying, foraging, orienteering, stalking, shelter building, whittling, and projectile hunting. Damon has been safely teaching these skills to students of all ages for more than 25 years.

WILD Discovery

Have fun exploring the natural world as we seek out the flora and fauna of Florida, from megafauna to microscopic, and use our discoveries to learn about ecosystems, classification, adaptation, life cycles, symbiotic relationships, and conservation through inquiry-based learning. Plan to get your feet wet and your hands dirty as this class is all about getting out and immersing ourselves in nature. Activities will include dip netting, water testing, hiking, catch and release sampling, animal encounters, and just plain nature discovery. Each week will have a theme, but our learning will be driven by what we find along the way.
