|Saturday||9:00 AM to 5:00 PM|
|Sunday||9:00 AM to 5:00 PM|

Please bring: at least one strong bokken, a short bokken, a covered (fukuro) shinai (available from E-Bogu.Com) and a tanto (we have them if you don't)
Make sure that your shinai is in good shape to start
If it is not contact Bu Jin for spare bamboo ASAP; experience indicates that a spare bamboo insert wouldn't hurt anyway.
A pair of Hockey or Lacrosse gloves is important although Kendo Kote will suffice.
Note: If you attend the Intensive at Aikido Eastside we can supply protective helmets as well. If you wish to attend an Intensive at a different venue, we recommend that you acquire your own helmet (optional) if you wish the most unrestrained training experience. Possible sources:
Kali Full Contact Helmet
ProForce® Thunder Padded Helmet
Ronin Padded Weapons Sparring Helmets
Sports Drink(s) of some type for re-hydrating is recommended plus a back up gi (and hakama?) in case the one you are wearing gets torn.
A tube of arnica gel and any tape you need is also good to have.
