Start the year with 100 punches at Willow’s Beach in the waters off Oak Bay.
Every new years day this martial arts group takes part in Spirit Training at noon at Willows Beach. Similar to the polar bear swim, but taken to the next level!
All martial artists are welcome to participate. Organizers ask that everyone arrive by 11:45 am as they will be starting promptly at noon.
Anyone wishing to partake are asked to meet in the parking lot at the south end of the beach at the intersection on Beach Drive and Dalhousie St.
Full gi and belt required. It is highly recommended that you bring some sort of footwear (i.e. sandals with straps) as the beach does not have a sandy bottom. Osu!
The even it hosted and organized by Sensei Greg Turnbull .
