In preparation for the tsue (walking cane) seminar we will hold a beginner cane class Thursday, July 31st from 7:30-8:30 p.m. at the Estes Park dojo. Dojo members and non-members, beginner and advanced are encouraged to attend. We will start with very basic cane techniques. The foundation developed from
attending this class will enable students to make the most out of Soke Kubota’s instruction. The charge is $10. (proceeds will help offset the cost of bringing Master Kubota to Colorado). Any cane (wood, plastic, etc.) can be used for the class.
The self-defense seminar will include instruction on the use of the kubotan, shown above, a 5″ plastic key chain and self-defense tool originally developed by Master Kubota. Kubotans will be available at the seminar.
