Budo Taijutsu Workshop, 08/23/08

We had good fun at last Saturday's workshop, which included plenty of training, questions from friendly passersby, a download of info from my recent Urban E&E seminar, including escaping capture from handcuffs and flexcuffs, and even an impromptu Taijutsu demonstration for curious officers of the Chicago Police Department. In fact, we had such a good time, I'll be hosting another workshop while we can take advantage of the weather.

Come join us on Saturday, August 23, 2008, from 12:00pm-6:00pm, at the same location, the park located at Lawrence Ave and North Simonds Road, just next to Lake Michigan in Chicago. Take a left onto N Simonds Road (which doubles as the parking lot), training will be near a small grove on the right-hand side, about 60 yards in from Lawrence Ave.

We'll again look at Togakure Ryu, Happobiken, and of course, Tsunagari "connecting" with the opponent. This will be outdoor training, so pack a lunch, drinks, and snacks. And you may want to bring something to grill, as we may have a hibachi with us. The cost will be $40.00.

Please let me know if you plan on coming by shooting an email off to me. Thanks!

Hope to see you there,
