This year's teenage seminar day was held on Saturday, October 28. The seminar is taught by Grandmaster Crandall, Master Stalloch, and the other four Master Instructors with assistance from the black belt instructors. This annual all-day event provides the students with an opportunity to learn about traditional martial arts topics in greater detail, many of which are not covered in regular classes. This event is an important part of the student's training, as it aids the Master Instructors in getting to know them better and evaluate them on attitude, skills, and knowledge regarding the style.
This year's class topics included Seiza Waza techniques and drills, katas, sparring, breaking, self-defense, philosophy, tai-jutusu concepts, and more.
