Important events

Minnesota Seminar 2017, Akamine Hiroshi Sensei, the President of the Ryukyu Kobudo Shimbukan and Mukenkai Karate Associations will be visiting Minnesota for 10 days. Training will be on Wednesday 4 October to Monday 9 October. This takes advantage of the holiday weekend on the 9th and should afford an opportunity for maximum participation. There will be training sessions from 11:00 to 2:00 and early evenings. Each session will have three hours of floor time split between one hour of individual / small group training and two hours of seminar instruction. We will have a welcoming party on Wednesday evening the 4th and a send off on Monday evening the 9th.
