We will be holding the Spring Promotions and Yamakura Shihan Seminars in the Toledo area on April 13th and 14th.

Promotions will be held April 13th at 7:00 PM. All students in the area testing for San Kyu or above should plan on attending if possible.

School Leaders, please contact me to let me know which students you will be bringing to the promotions. All blackbelts in the area are welcome to attend and sit on the review board. Both the promotions and the seminars will be held at 8235 Adler in Lambertville, MI. This is a large residential property, generously made available to us by one of our members, Mr. Frank Borgelt.

The seminars on Saturday April 14th will be led by Shihan Yamakura. The fee for each Seminar is $10, or $20 for all three. Families may register for all three for $50 regardless of the number of family members. All attendees from outside the local area may wave the registration fee. Any instructors that have students with financial hardships should send me their names and they will added to a "prepaid" list so that they may still attend the seminars.

Noon - 1:30 PM for all ranks
1:45 PM - 3:15 PM for Green Belts and above
3:30 - 5:30 for Black Belts

6:30 - Dinner and Annual GKK meeting. Traditionally we have held the dinner meeting at the En Japanese restaurant. We plan to use that location again, though it is subject to change.

Check the GKK Events list for details.
