    The Drawbridge Inn is pretty inexpensive and very close to the school (15 minute walk), the phone number to them is 519-337-7571

    The Super 8 is very close as well their number is 519-337-3767


    I will say that Jason Arnold is by far the most martial arts knowlegeable Canadian I have ever met. He is not only a practioner and student of several style, but goes into great depth to understand both the hows and whys of everything he does.

    Thanks Rob,

    I was going to email and ask, but it is great to see you perservere through such a great obstacle.

    We had a lot a Canadians in the USMC and they were some of the toughest SOBs I ever met. It must be the climate.

    No wonder your country is so well thought of by the international community.

    See you on the 28th,

    I am hoping to have between 10 and 20 people at the school on Sunday. I am getting more sensitivity back in my fingers so I am hoping to be able to hold onto my sticks and knives.

    Canadians have to be tough, our national sport is played on ice with a frozen puck that can shatter bones, during the game we wield large sticks, and when we don't like something on teh ice a fist fight breaks out. I believe it is because of Canadians they coined the phrase walk softly and carry a big stick.

    Three of the participants have worked with Jason Arnold in the past at a knife seminar last spring plus he taught at my boot camp last year. The man offers quality instruction in abundance, and all the participants will get more than their money's worth.

    Thank you Jason for lots of great information and thank you Rob for the opportunity to experience EPAK and FMA. The FMA was different from what I had experienced before, but very familiar. That is the first EPAK I have done in 15 years. It was nice to learn some of the concepts and get some confirmation on aspects I was not sure about. It was great to see so many people from such different backgrounds in martial arts all in one place finding comraderie.

    Very well done.

    That was a really fun and informative seminar.

    I would like to thank everyone who attended todays seminar. I had a blast, and with all that has been going on in my life lately it was very therapuetic.

    The seminar started off with Jason teaching some great footwork drills, which is always to be expected when Jason Arnold is teaching. We then migrated into Short Form 1, and then into Delayed Sword and Five Swords. We then took a lunch break. Directly after lunch we jumped into some great stick work for the next two hours. After another small break we worked on club defenses, Checking the Storm, Evading the Storm etc.... By the end of the 5 hours we all shared the same blank expression. After the seminar several of us went out for dinner and a few pints, the jokes flowed, and a good time was had by all. I will say this was a great success and it is because of Jason and all those who participated that we will be talking about this for a long time to come.

    Thank You to Jason for teaching, thank you to my girlfiend Julie for taking pictures and filming everything, and a huge thank you to all 11 people to where out on the floor pounding away.

    This was a lot of fun. I learn some new stuff and got a chance to revisit some of the few things that I have learned for a nice review. I even brought home some memorable bruises. Got the lovely chance to visit a new country and experiance going through customs, lol. But, best of all I got to meet some of the people that I have been talking to for years now here on Kenpotalk. I do hope to do that again sometime. Thanks Rob Broad for hosting this event and thankyou to Jason Arnold for the great instruction.

    It was our pleasure to have you into the school. For someone who hasn't got to train for a while you did great. You as well as everyone who attended are welcomed back on my floor anytime.

    sorry for the late response folks i havent been online much.. first off thank you Rob for hosting the event and to Julie for taking the pics and video. It is amazing considering everything Rob has been through the show still went on and very well i might add. It was really nice seeing everyone having a good time and thank you for the feedback as an instructor sometimes we dont get the chance to really work with each person as much as we would have liked to but i try my best to give everyone a hands on with me. Thank you to all the participants and i have to agree i was not expecting different styles showing up but i am extremly glad they did and hope they got a good impression of ed parkers kenpo from this event. i look forward to working with each of you again and i will say once again it was an honour for me and a great experience i will remember due to everyones generosity.
    many thanks

    Freddy Mercury said it best, "The Show Must Go On" and that is exactly how I feel. Last June when the numbers for the Boot Camp were very low, I borrowed some cash to make it work. This seminar with all that was going on in my personal life had to go on for several reasons, one of which was a promise to my students for one more quality event in 2008, another was to get together with friends and friends to be, and lastly the seminar was the best possible therapy for me. I would have loved to have had another 10 people on the floor and used the downstairs of the building but I don't think that oculd have made the event any better, actually it probably would have made it worse, since there would have been less individual attention.

    Rob, I'm glad you had a good turn out. I had the opportunity to work with Jason before I went on vacation and boy did I learn alot. If any of you get a chance to train under him you'll walk away with a truck load of information. Jason sure knows the system and is a awesome instructor. Once again Rob, I'm sorry to hear about your loss.
