Announcement - Marpole Dojo fall schedule

Hi Everyone,

For those of you who are attenting the Marpole Dojo with sensei, please note that the fall schedule will involve a move to Friday evenings with classes running from 1745 to 2000.  The dojo will also be relocated to a larger room to accomodate the growing class size.  Details of the class location as well as rates will follow.

Remember folks, the Marpole Community Centre is South Vancouver (closer to Richmond), it still is a smaller class size compared to the UBC dojo, which means more one-on-one with sensei, and.....FREE PARKING!
