Day 732: It's a summer tradition ...











It's a summer tradition ...








first we designate a hot summer weekend day...






then negotiate a large local gym, 






to host over 200 karate-ka, and ...








we meet for 4 hours of hard work.





Under the direction of Demura Sensei.
See the 4 minute preview of his documentary here.







We call it ... Super Summer Seminar.







Extensive training and  conditioning ...








in kata and kumite.








An annual summer tradition.






To prove it, here we were in 1991,  23 years ago ...
