Soke Takayoshi Nagamine
10th Dan, Hanshi-sei

Soke Takayoshi Nagamine Anshin Dojo presents the 5th Annual Memorial Karate Seminar for Soke Takayoshi Nagamine

Last year, the 4th annual memorial was a great success! Students from across North America joined us to mourn the loss of a great man and karate person. We would be honoured to have everyone join us this year to commemorate the life and times of Soke Nagamine.
All Students Are Welcome. The cost is what you think this seminar is worth. We would ask that everyone pay what they can, though Anshin Dojo will be accepting minimum $2 donations. The rest goes towards the preservation of Anshin Dojo and Matsubayashi Shorin Ryu. This event is a potluck, so if you would like to bring food as a contribution, we encourage it!
We hope to see you there! All students must fill out waiver forms and submit them to Sensei Trombley. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD Copies are also available at the dojo.

Sensei Frank Baehr, Kyoshi - Father of Matsubayashi-Ryu
Sensei Baehr and Sensei Trombley This is the first seminar in Canada for Sensei Frank Baehr, the Father of Matsubayashi-Ryu. Sensei Baehr lived in Okinawa with O-Sensei Nagamine in the 1960's and brought his knowledge back to Canada. This will be a two-day seminar held at Anshin Dojo in the upstairs area over the main dojo. A dinner will be held with Sensei after class on Saturday at California's Grill just down the street from the dojo.


Date: November 22-23, 2013

We all thank Sensei Baehr for sharing his knowledge, wisdom and experiences and we look forward to many future opportunities to train with and learn from him. Thank you to all the dedicated students who attended, for your support and your participation at this seminar. The seminar hosted last weekend was a great success!


Sensei Yoshiko Dometrich
Kobudo Training

Sensei Yoshiko Dometrich Anshin School of Karate invites you to train with Sensei Yoshiko Dometrich!


It is important to note Dometrich was Akamine Sensei’s only non-Okinawan, non-Japanese deshi and remains his most direct link outside of Japan or Okinawa. As she plays her part in preparing the next generation of kobudoka, Dometrich Sensei is as committed to preserving the legacy of Akamine Eisuke, as he was to his teacher, Taira Shinken.
Date: Tuesday August 22nd, 2017 from 5pm until closing
Cost: $40 for members, $60 for non-members
