Karate practice is great, but karate seminars are a lot of fun, too.
We usually have a seminar given by Hanshi Madani in August of every year. We do not have a specific date in mind for 2015 but will let you know when it is scheduled.

There are also seminars in SLC Utah yearly, often in September, as well as at the Honbu dojoin Louisville, Colorado occasionally. A reminder that all North Fork Karate-ka may visit the Honbu dojo at any time, just check the IMA website for details and class times.
Gasshuku or Karate Camp is probably one of the best and most intensive seminars of the year, held yearly at the end of September or beginning of October. A full weekend is devoted to age and level-appropriate training with some of the best instructors in the nation. Instructors in the past have included Senseis Cheryl Murphy, Tommy Hood, Clay Morton, Tom Scott, Akira Fukuda, Dustin Baldis and many others.
