Sensei McColl Seminar
Reposted from GMAC announcement by Sensei Stafford - May 20, 2009

McMaster karateka, if you're looking for extra training and an excuse to hang out in Toronto for an afternoon/evening, then join us on Sunday, May 31. Sensei will be teaching a seminar at the Toronto Goju Ryu Karate dojo from 2-4pm. We'll go for a bite to eat and beverages somewhere nearby afterwards. The dojo is located at 190 Richmond St E, 2nd floor (Richmond and George - near Jarvis). See website below for map. We're a 10-15min walk from Union Station. I believe a few of the black belts are planning to attend, so you may be able to carpool.
