POMA event postponed

Power of Martial Arts event moving to spring 2016 date

The planned Power of Martial Arts event has been postponed.

Event organziers are now aiming for a date in spring 2016, as opposed to the original plan of Nov. 7 and 8.

Seminar ticket holders will be refunded but organizers urge all interested to be on the look out for the announcement of the new date.

“POMA is committed to bring awareness to the serious issue of bullying in Canada, and will continue hosting a seminar about advocacy,” stated event organizer Brigitte MacKenzie in a press release.

UFC pioneer and hall of famer Royce Gracie, and Carol Todd, mother of the late Amanda Todd and president of the Amanda Todd Legacy Society, are still schedueled to be presenters at the event in the spring. The conversation is set to be focused on the critical issue of bullying.

Seminars given by women who have developed personal strength through martial arts training are also planned.
