We're back with Kamata Sensei's SUMMER SEMINAR 2 at the University of Alberta Van Vliet Centre East Gym on June 23-25! THIS IS NOT A BEGINNER OR INTRODUCTORY EVENT. Juniors are welcome, but participants must be in bogu and capable of full contact practice. Don't miss this rare opportunity to train in Alberta with Kamata Sensei and his special guests: Rokudan Shawn Kunhee Kim of North York Kendo and Rokudan Bora Choi of Jungko! The focus of this event will be shiai kendo: whether you're looking to improve your results at local tournaments or to prepare yourself for the upcoming National Championships in August!

Budogu Zen will also be in attendance with a booth selling shinai and making kote repairs. A great opportunity to get advice from the experts for all your equipment needs!
