Rockies Kick Seminar -- Oct/8th-10th, 2010

Contents

What's happening

We are privileged to have 9th degree black belt Grandmaster D.H. Kim, from Tucson Arizona lead us with a weekend of training on October 8-10th.

To make this an even more fun and exciting event we will be doing our training at a Retreat Center in the mountains! The Retreat Center is quite affordable, has nice accommodations, has unbelievable views of the Rockies, and is right in a wonderful natural setting of Colorado forest.

This year those of us staying for the weekend will ALL be in the cabins. There aren't retreat center rooms available (although there may be one if there is a cancelation). The cabins aren't as nice as the retreat center rooms -- but they are still very nice accomidations, with modern cabins built in the 90's. The only issue is that you will share a room and bathroom with up to seven other folks. But, I say "Let the party begin". That just means we get to have a great time with each other in the same room.
