BUTOKUDEN Dojo Relocation Notice

Dear BUTOKUDEN Members and Friends:

As you may have already heard from your Senseis, we are currently building a new Dojo inside E-BOGU.COM warehouse. We will be moving out from our current Dojo on January 31. Please get information from your Sensei, as each of your Senseis will co-ordinate their class schedule during the transition. I would like to apologize the inconveniences during the move, but I am sure the new Dojo will be much better than our current one.

The new Dojo will be at E-BOGU.COM Warehouse which is located in the address below.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Taro Ariga
