Are you confused by all of the summer seminar offerings? This quick guide will help you to sort out your training schedule.
In June, Rafi will be leading a P-camp for adults in Mississauga. This will run from 1:30-4:30 p.m. on June 13th. Because it’s a seminar led by Rafi, typical rates apply. Thus, Gold members can participate for free; for all other membership types, it’s $80. The P-camp offers essential training for P-level testing, and it’s an excellent way to consolidate your knowledge of P-techniques, even if you’re not interested in testing right away. Registration for this event is on right now.
In July, Rafi will be leading a G-camp for adults in Mississauga. This will also run from 1:30-4:30 p.m. It will be held on July 11th. Again, with it being a seminar led by Rafi, the usual rates apply. Gold members can participate for free; for all other members, it’s $80. Registration is on now.
In August, we are very lucky to be hosting Master Gabi Noah, the head of IKM. He will be offering a number of seminars and he will also be conducting level testing for children and adults. It really is a rare and wonderful experience to learn from Gabi, one that many students travel to Israel to enjoy. It is our good fortune that he will be joining us here in the GTA.
In terms of the seminars led by Gabi, there are a few points to keep in mind. First, he will be running a children’s seminar, which includes testing. He will conduct the same seminar, first in Mississauga and then in Maple. This seminar is $120 per child, regardless of which location is chosen. The Mississauga seminar will be held on August 17th from 4-7 p.m. The Maple seminar will be held on August 18th from 4-7 p.m. Registration is on now.
The next group of seminars that Gabi will be offering is for adults. There are six seminars that he will be running that are open to all adult students. The first is a knife seminar on August 17th from 7-9 p.m. in Mississauga. The second is a carjacking seminar on August 18th from 7-9 p.m. in Maple. The third is a gun seminar on August 19th from 4-6 p.m. in Mississauga; the fourth also occurs on August 19th, but it runs from 6-8 p.m. and is a mini P-prep seminar. The fifth is a stick seminar on the 20th from 4-6 p.m. in Mississauga, followed by seminar number six – a mini G-prep seminar on the 20th from 6-8 p.m. in Mississauga. There is package pricing available for these six seminars, as well as early-bird pricing that significantly discounts the cost of each. Registration is on right now, and we’d highly encourage everyone to sign up ASAP. Gabi’s seminars are very popular, and the pricing options will change. Please note that for this group of six seminars, there are some important dates to remember: If you sign up for all six seminars prior to June 25th, you will get one of them for free. Prior to July 1st, each seminar is $60. After July 1st, each one will be $85. As of July 11th, there will be no refunds. Please note that this policy is in place as Gabi will be joining us from overseas and must book travel and accommodations well in advance. We genuinely appreciate your understanding.
Following the regular adult seminars, Gabi will be running an instructors’ refresher, which is open only to those who have completed instructor training. This will be held on the 21st in Mississauga, from 6-8 p.m. This seminar is not covered under package or early-bird pricing, and costs a flat $80.
On account of the packed schedule, there will be some interruptions to normal classes. These will be e-mailed and put on Facebook, but for the sake of simplicity, please note that there will not be classes on August 19th in Mississauga, August 20th in Maple, or August 21 in Maple. After these dates, classes will get right back to normal.
