Daryl Tester has organised this in previous years and I (Jonathan Oxer) would love it if he did it again, so I'm making this page as a prompt for him ;-)

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 trained 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.

Places in Auckland where you can buy gear that is very close to the venue (can walk there or take a bus/taxi)
  
To do: scope out the venue and find a suitable location. We will most likely find some nice outdoor grassy spot near the conference venue, and meet early in the morning for about 1 - 1.5 hours.
