The Dojo

FanimeCon presents: The Dojo. This is where you can see the art and the science of martial arts, talk about your interest in weapons (What? You thought you were the only one?), join workshops to learn a new martial art, or just come to panels to talk about the history and theory of combat. We offer a special “ladies only” self defense class, and we even go into making armor, the concepts of battle vs dueling, and the differences in metals used for blades. All questions answered and myths examined. Come join us to learn about weapons and their usage, the differences between martial art styles, and have a great time with like-minded people!

Check out the Dojo Events.
