We are all very honored by Shihan Willson's coming visit to our dojo. This will be his first visit ever to our area.
This is a rare opportunity to meet and train with him and I highly encourage everyone to seriously consider taking advantage of this special opportunity.
We will have a training seminar session on Saturday November 10 between 1pm - 5pm for all.
