    Exclamation O.K.K.A. Studios - Grand re-opening

    Also just an excuse to have some kewl seminars.

    June 15, 16 and maybe the 17, 2007

    Datu Tim Hartman (Modern Arnis) has agreed to come and teach, and we will have more for sure. I just wanted to give everyone the heads up in case you were interested and needed to book the date in advance.

    I will have more information early next week as to other instructors, topics, costs and location!

    So hang tight and see you there!

    Sounds good to to me.

    For anyone interested, Paul has always thrown great events at a really good cost. I can't wait for this one. It will be my first camp since I moved back down this way.

    For those of you who ahve never trained with Tim Hartman before, I recommend that you attend his seminars. Also at Paul's school, you will be traeted with much respect and open arms, so to speak.

    Question Re: O.K.K.A. Studios - Grand re-opening

    Alright I am probably gonna get some looks over this... What is O.K.K.A. ? That acronym was at one time tied to the Original Kenpo Karate Association. Which I believe has been disbanded. Is this the trumpeting of its return? If so, what would Mr.Hartman have to do with it? I mean with being a FMA guy. Just partaking in the celebration? Or is this a FMA orginization that I am unfamiliar with? I apologize for the deep sighs that I am causing some of you, and thanks for the help.

    OKKA was Paul D's studio in Ontario, him and Hartman go way back.
    (Tim's my instructor, when I have time to train)
