ATTIRE: Full Gi or Seido T-shirt, Gi Pants, & Belt
WHEN: Sunday July 12, 2015 | 9am - 11am
HOW MUCH: This is a free event!
We thought this would be a great way to give all our local and nearby students a glimpse of what's to come one year from now so we've arranged to hold a general workout at SUNY-Purchase's Great Lawn. If it rains, we can move the workout inside to their main gym. Or... we can train in the rain!
Locker rooms will be available to us that day, but... even more, we'll also have access to some (if not all) of the locations we will be using for the competition, seminars and special events. So, you'll definitely get a good feel for the venue where we'll be spending the entire week in 2016!
This is a great opportunity for anyone who can make it to get out of the city, get a great workout in, and take a tour of the campus where Go-En will take place!
Any children from your program(s) who want to join the workout are also welcome to participate as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult.

A charter bus will be made available on a first come-first served basis to take students from Honbu up to SUNY-Purchase and back. The bus departs Honbu promptly at 7:45am on Sunday, July 12, and departs SUNY-Purchase at noon from SUNY-Purchase to return to Honbu. Total cost for Honbu/SUNY-Purchase/Honbu: $30. All those interested in taking the bus must sign-up and pay in advance at Honbu or Johshin Honzan. Deadline for bus sign-up is Thursday, July 2nd.
We hope you and your students will join us for this special Go-En Sneak Peek & General Workout!
