We had a wonderful seminar with Hanshi Dometrich on July 22nd!  We worked on bo and sai basics, then the kata Chikin Shitahaku no Sai and Shirotaru no Kon!  We had Shito-ryu, Shotokan, Shorin-ryu, Isshin-ryu and Kenpo styles all represented and training together!  Great day of training!  We all went out to eat Chinese food afterwards!20246475_687134748140774_5591113223345354507_n20286982_687132734807642_4008339933406784129_oIMG_0504

Great to have a visit from old friends and students!  Greg and Alzada are original students from when CMAC started in 1991!  They moved to Chicago in 1993 and are now living in Washington state!  Both are still actively training in Shorin-ryu karate.  They were in town to visit and train June 23rd – 25th!
