Throughout the weekend you will have the opportunity to train all day, and/or relax, socialize, and enjoy some of Mandurah's best attractions. Family and kids are welcomed in the dojo during the seminar...seating will be available.
Why Western Australia
Mandurah is less than 2 hours from Perth International Airport and is central to Margaret River and Swan Valley wine regions. With beautiful beaches and Rottnest Island on the door step and more sunny days per year than any other Australian capital there is plenty to do right near the Dojo or further afield like the Pinnacles. Locally Mandurah is hosting the Giants Art installation.
