Join us for a three day workshop in our hometown of Keller, Tx as we delv into the details of the Karate's kata.
This time around we will be focusing in on the classical and immensily dence kata Kushanku/Kusanku/Kanku-dai aswell as deescalation, gripping skills, dealing with multiple enemies, and more!

Sunday 1/29/17: 9:30am - 2:30pm
Registration will begin 30 min before the events on each day, please make sure to show up in time to get checked in.
Keller is 30 min from DFW airport, one the most accessable airports in the country. Reccomended hotels can be found below. There aren't any hotels directly in Keller but Roanoke/Trophy Club is one town over (20 min) and has plenty of options. Additionally, there are lots of hotels in Grapevine near the airport. We're looking forward to training with everybody!
Side note, we have a really cool venue this year but the only downside is that the bathrooms are single person. So we reccomend coming in your gi ahead of time to minimize the lines to change.
Recommended Hotels (Roanoke/Trophy Club):
We will be limiting signups to sixty people this year to make sure that we don't get over crowded and that everybody gets their money's worth out of the weekend. Sign up sooner rather than later to guaruntee your spot!
