The dates of the USAF Summer Camp have just been announced: it will take place from Sunday, July 27th, to Saturday, August 2nd. The seminar will take place at the Stockton Seaview Hotel in Galloway, NJ

This is a special edition of the Summer Camp, as it will celebrate the 50th anniversary of Yamada Sensei’s arrival in the United States. This will be quite an event. You can find more information at

I encourage you to consider attending the Summer Camp if you can. (Unfortunately, I won’t be able to, as my two sons are getting married this coming summer, one on July 26th and the other on August 16th.)

You might also want to consider attending the annual seminar in Montreal, held this year on May 17th and 18th. This seminar also is in honour of Yamada Sensei’s 50th anniversary in North America. More information is available at

These are two excellent practice opportunities!
