Hai sai (Hello) Martial Artists’: We had a long and unusually cold winter in the Northeast. But everything is back in full swing now and spring is here. Recently, we have had a number of great classes at the honbu dojo in New York. Anyone interested in visiting and/or training please let us know.
Also, just a reminder to everyone interested in attending the Summer Seminars it will be better than ever this year. Organizationally one of the goals of the ISKKF (International Shorin Ryu Karate Kobudo Federation our parent organization) is to host another Summer Camp & Seminars in upstate New York, July 31st and August 1st and August 2nd. This is always a fabulous event and not to be missed. You can sign up now and pay in full ($299.95) and get a discount or reserve your spot for only $50.00 by going to http://www.yamazato-videos.com
If you sign up before June 1st you’ll save $50.00. We will offer the full compliment of martial arts training as always. This will be the third year we will run the camp in New York and the combat maze our exciting new event. Upstate New York is beautiful this time of year and will provide the perfect setting for our camp. Will see you at the Summer Camp in August.
Finally, Okinawa 2015! We will be organizing another Okinawa Tour in January of 2015. That date will be here “Sooner than you think!” So plan accordingly. We will publish more on this shortly. But think of your budget being around $3,500.00. I already have some great dojos and places for us to visit you can’t find any other way and are not the normal tourist attractions. I guarantee the full Okinawa cultural experience. Just ask anybody who went with us last year. Any questions? Let me know. Sayonara!
Train hard! Win easy!
Cheers & Osu!
