First Mushinkan Seminar Details

Mushinkan Dojo (Liberty Township, OH) will host its first seminar ~1yr from now, currently scheduled for mid-July 2015 on a weekend.

The probable venue for it is Martin Martial Arts.

It will likely be weapon focused.

Stay tuned and look for volunteer opportunities, since host locations often help attendees from afar and prepare the event.

Although Lakota Schools closed today, evening activities are still proceeding--this reflects that the storm has passed long enough for the roads to clear up.  So if your local roads are good, please attend as usual. Class should start at 8PM!
