This year our theme is Bushido (武士道, “the way (or the moral) of the warrior”, which is a Japanese term describing a codified samurai way of life.
We will have over 20 National and International Instructors this year from a variety of styles. Our hope is that all represented will find a relationship between what each of us does. This may give each of us a different perspective on how and what to bring back into our art form we each study.
At our clinic this year we will have 4 mat areas, an outside training area, and 2 healing art class rooms. Massage treatments will be available on site for $80 a session
We will have possibly 10 American Judo and Jujitsu Federation Professors at this years event:
- Professor John Congistre
- Professor Don Cross (hopeful)
- Professor Geoff Lane (hopeful)
- Professor Dennis Estes (hopeful)
- Professor Tom Hill
- Professor Robert Hodgkin (hopeful)

A special guest by the name of Master Tony Morris will be coming as well. He believes “Life is an amazing adventure – and we have never ‘arrived.’ Every day is a new beginning!” I could not agree more. He will be teaching a special class for all. He is a very successful businessman.
We will also be having Black Belt examinations and lots of great classes. Kumu Michelle Manu will be teaching a women’s self defense program in the evenings, this you don’t wanna miss!
