Seattle Escrima Club is pleased to sponsor a seminar weekend with internationally renowned Escrima Grandmaster Rene Latosa, founder of Latosa Escrima Concepts. We have been extremely lucky over the life of our club to have GM Rene visit to share his expertise. This visit he will be accompanied by one of his most senior master level students, Cedric Concon, an amazing teacher and extremely successful escrima competitor worldwide. Our past seminars have all been intimate affairs with a small group of martial artists present to improve their game by getting personal attention from GM Rene. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For this seminar, we will be hosting at the School of Acrobatics and New Circus Arts in the south Seattle neighborhood of Georgetown. See map at the bottom of this page.
