Seminar Dates and Other things

First if you guys could let me know what a good date for a Doug Wilson seminar would be. So far as far as seminars go there is Rob Renner in Calgary (April), Lubos P. in Edmonton (September) and Doug Wilson in Edmonton (?).

Also an update on Tickets to Japan, so far the best price that I have found is $985. I hope to do better so I will keep everyone informed.

Lastly I have the new domain to which I will move the club site. I am still trying to sort out the hosting details but I will let you know when the transfer happens. I would like to attract a few more people to the club. I don’t see any harm in having a large club filled with like minded people who are interested in Martial arts as opposed to sports.

Japan Trip May 2008(aka Japan Round 6)

Published by under Training in Japan

Just hammering out the final details of the May Japan trip. As you all know (well not all of you but I will say it anyhow), every year since 2004 I have gone to Japan to train the martial arts. Last year I managed to make it twice. This said, I am trying to organize a group trip. This will involve group rates for travel (I hope) and co-ordinates places to stay. If you are interested let me know and I will put you on the list. Usually you would plan to travel from 17-19 days and spend $4000 (as a safe estimate). It is difficult training that much and getting used to the culture for some. If you are coming and are trying to practice your Japanese, I do have resources to help. Let me know and I will get you what you need. From now until May I don’t expect anyone to be able to master the Japanese language, but ordering food and asking for directions are very important skills to have.

I hope everyone had a good Christmas and a Safe and Happy New year. I look forward to training with everyone in 2008.
