No matter how much training you may have had over the years, a weekend with Tujon Gaje is just plain fun and worth the price of admission alone.  Then on top of it you get some good training.  You can't go wrong.

CWS...

thanks for your reply!  It is true that time spent with GT Gaje is not at all easily forgotten - he is quite extraodinary.  This is something of an inaugural event here in South Florida, so we are all excited and looking forward to making it a memorable experience.

Thanks again, good to hear from you!

A younger version of me too!  These pictures were taken in 1997 or '98.

Greetings to all...

Thank you Guro Crafty for those pics - always cool to see people's personal photos of times shared with Tuhon.  Just wanted to share that we have had tremendous responses from all over the state of Florida, with participants from Sarasota, Jacksonville, Miami, and Orlando.  My gratitude for the role this forum announcement has played in helping spread the word. 

My thanks again and all the best...
