VWA dojo members will be able to billet a number of out-of-town participants. Please email your request to Liz .


Both VWA Cambie and SFU are easily reachable by public transit, so you may consider a wide area when looking for a hotel. You can even book a hotel downtown Vancouver, and go to SFU by bus (which will take about an hour).

There is a small hotel right next to the gym at SFU, called Simon Hotel . It has only 14 rooms, so book early! There are also other hotels near SFU, just a short bus ride away.

Dan Testing at the seminar

Testing at the seminar will be conducted by three CAF Examination Committee members. Testing candidates should email Bruce Riddick before March 3, 2020.
