The Martial Arts BoF is for any practitioner of any martial art to come together, train, share and learn. Even if you're a beginner or just mildly curious and have never training before, you're welcome to come along and participate. The format is a relaxed training session where you will have an opportunity to try out different styles and techniques, and also teach something from your own style if you feel so inclined.

To do: scope out the venue and find a suitable location.
