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.
