I will begin by volunteering Kron for 100 hours of labor towards distance beginner curriculum support, with a 500 hour minimum total trigger (meaning that we don't start our 100 hours until there are at least 400 hours offered by other instructors and clubs).

Guys, I'm in ill give you 100 hours. Now lets get busy!

Aaron Pynenberg

To that effect, I'm willing to volunteer 100 hours of effort from me and my group, Triangle Sword Guild. One of my goals for the group this year was to publish our curriculum format and to film all of our basic drills for new students, so this totally seems like it would complement that effort.

I've been putting our lesson plans and other resources online. The beginner guides need to be updated, as do the beginner lesson plans, but the goal is to have everything up to date with good pictures and vids.

What ever you come up with it doesn't need to be the perfect end all be all. lots of people starting out have found our humble and simple starter guides useful.
