    Dear Lionel / Sensei Smith,
    I learned of the October Koshukai’s from Sensei Mattison’s mailing list. Thank you for sponsoring such a wonderful event. I would like to learn more about the Paris date (schedule, how to pay, accommodations, etc). I am a longtime member of Kenyukai NA with a small dojo in the US (see Kenyukai NA website). I am hoping that i can attend.
    Merci Beaucoup.
