Come join us May 15 – 17, 2015, for a weekend of training with no political agenda…open to all practitioners regardless of association or organization..,simply training and sharing ideas and concepts to help better understand our practice of Shorin Ryu Karate. This weekend is open to the first 60 people who sign up. The only requirements are that you come with an open mind and you are Shodan and above. There is no fee for this event.
