The ASU Summer Intensive dates back to 1976. We have historically continued this tradition at Catholic University’s DuFour Athletic Center, typically during the week of July the Fourth. Weather is typically warmer and offers an opportunity to train with weapons more exclusively. This seminar is typically a week long and offers six or more hours of training (“keiko”) every day.
