White River Budokan was proud to host the 2012 The United Martial Arts Association East Coast Training Camp
The White River Budokan hosted the second annual TUMAA east coast training camp. The dates for the training seminar were May 4,5 and 6, 2012. The venue was Hartland Elementary School gymnasium. We are very excited to be hosting this event, as a wide variety of traditional martial arts was offered. This was an open invitational to all martial arts students, whether training for many years or just a few classes. This was a great chance to gain exposure to some traditional martial arts.
Classes were provided in Goju Ryu KarateDo, Pankration, Hapkido, Jeete Kun Do, Judo, Aikido, Hapkido, Tae Kwon Do, Iaido, Ne Waza (grappling), Shoto -Jitsu, Okinawan Bo, Tai Chi and Ko TaiShin Ryu, also there will be Law enforcement training, Womens self defense, basic self defense, Reiki and therapeutic stretching.
The turnout was about as many as last year but with some different classes and instructors. Please go to Facebook and visit White River Budokan to see pictures of both lastyear and this year. This unique training will be offered again around the same time next year so the registration for this year is being left on to show folks prices and how to register.
