This seminar will be at Integrity Martial Arts and will be taught to you by Josh Reis:  Ganbaru Buyu Dojo

Day one will cover use and defense against a knife, accessing a knife and
protecting it.  Day two will focus on pistol use. Topics will include; protecting, deploying
and defending against a sidearm. Depending on the time, long-guns will be
briefly covered as well. Both days will include some empty hand training to demonstrate various principles.

Attire for this seminar is something comfortable with a sturdy belt for a
holster and no shoes. Socks or indoor tabi only when on the mats. There will
be some grabbing, so either a sturdy t-shirt or a sweatshirt would be best.
Please bring training firearms, holsters and training knives. A few extras will
be available if needed. There will be a short break on Saturday, and a break
for lunch on Sunday. Please email or PM me for any questions you may have.

Cost is $60.
