Dojo News for October

October 3, 2012

Our regional weapons seminar at Daiwa this past weekend in high heat and humidity was somehow both exhausting and exhilarating!  There was a high level of instruction from our teachers and students received lots of feedback. We have all returned with lots to work on. Thank you for your efforts to get there.

We are now looking ahead to hosting the seminar with Phil Vargas Sensei November 3rd and 4th.
