Seminars are for your education. They do not serve to beast the students all over the dojo floor, but are instead there so that you can learn, with like-minded individuals, the subject matter on offer. No affiliation or particular level of experience is necessary, just an open mind and willing to learn.

Seminars 4 U!
Some seminars may not be listed on this page as they are undertaken for groups who wish to keep the tuition purely for THEIR members. As each club continues to be run in the way that THEIR sensei sees fit it is their prerogative to have the seminar run the way they want it.
A seminar at your dojo can be "Closed Door" or "Open". Generally, we find that Open seminars only attract open-minded people and have never found the issues of "style" or politics to keep people from training together. We also respect those who want to keep the tuition specifically to how it can help their group, without having to be concerned with questions from Outsiders. As always, the choice is yours.
