Upcoming seminars

Posted in Seminars by Mark

Its only weeks away now,  “The  Annual 911 Fundraiser”  we are proud to announce that this years event will take place  at the B-Warrior Dojo on 53rd and 3rd  on Sat Sept 8th, from 10am till 6pm, details on how to get there can be found at www.bwarrior.com or by contacting us. This Fundraiser, will be the fourth chapter in the groups efforts to raise funds for SAR  groups in NY area, check out (http://www.newyorksearchandrescue.org/), the groups effort to date has included people and Dojo’s from around the World and The US.

This year promises to bring together another extraordinary collection of martial artists form as far afield as MA, NJ, NY,PA ,GA, NC, including Dojo’s in Florida and upstate New York and as far west has you can get without getting your feet wet. (please feel free to contact me and have your state included in this list). We even had visitors from  Ireland, the UK and Europe over the years. We have tried and somewhat succeeded in keeping the event a low key and intimate affair, as the subject matter is not only topical to our current times but extremely personal for many of us, it is a day when we celebrate the living breathing art which we call Bu-do tai jitsu, this title does not exclude any other art, Bu-do encompasses all arts , it includes everyone who tries to help others and improve their communities .

If you have any questions about this years event please contact us, we have tried to keep the costs down and we will keep the same donation/cost as last year, all proceeds go to the organisation of choice, we try to maintain as low as possible expenses, so that the most amount of money gets to those people that need it, imagine one day if someone you knew was found by a SAR team , but more importantly imagine someone else’s families happiness at having their loved ones rescued and returned to them.

 Ultimately the greatest gift is the selfless act of sacrifice to help others, at this moment in time there are hundreds of thousands of the men and women of our armed services defending our rights and freedoms, At home we are protected and cared for by our Police and Fire Departments this includes EMT ‘s, Nurses and Doctors, on any given day we are cared for by individuals we do not acknowledge or even know. We as a society are only as strong as the community in which we live and support, we are now part of a global community , a community where we as individuals are responsible for the health , welfare and safety of everyone in it, to the exclusion of no one.

 More details to follow, the when, where, and who, this year we will have  Mr Jack Hoban  NJ, Mr Mark Davis MA,  Mr Matt Hilldreth NY,  Mr Ken De Jesus FL, and some other visitors who may just show up on  the day, Sat 8th Sept, donations are same as last year, the venue to be confirmed depending on attendance, there is local accommodations and spare beds if required( i.e.floors!),  we will also attempt to answer all questions in a competent and expeditious manner for those that we cant answer, we will simply make something up…
