UPDATE: Weekend Seminar

Due to the heavy snowfall that hit Halifax/Nova Scotia this Wednesday, and the storms projected to hit this weekend, we have decided to postpone our Seminar with Yoshimi Sensei. This is unfortunate, but we feel its the safest option for all involved. Please stay tuned for more updates!

2015 CAF Summer Camp Update

It appears that Osawa Shihan, due to an injury, will not be instructing at the 2015 CAF Summer Camp in Toronto this year.  Quoting Fran Turner Sensei:

Hello Friends /Bonjour mes Ami(e)s

Due to an injury Osawa Sensei will not be available to teach at the 2015
Summer Camp being held in Toronto. The 2015 Summer Camp will go ahead as
planned. Classes will be taught by members of the Exam Committee, and
CAF Shidoin. As well, yudansha test will be held as planned.

Costs will will be reduced to reflect the fact that Osawa Sensei will
not be teaching. The CAF Board hopes that everyone will still consider
attending, and joining us in the first Summer Camp ever held in Ontario.

I will let you know when the information is posted on the summer camp

Camp Coordinator
