SEISHINKAN Dojo Expansion Completed

SEISHINKAN Karate on Main Dojo Expansion Completed

The dojo expansion project is complete with only minor work yet remaining. The practice floor was increased by 35%! The expansion was necessary to accomodate our rapidly growing student body. A major success was moving the very large (and heavy) mirrors without breaking. Happily this was accomplished, thanks to the assistance of our students.

Three treatment rooms were built for SEISHINKAN Karate on Main's new East-West medicine clinic which will provide both medical acupuncture and oriental medicine treatments. The next post will highlight the clinic and staff.
