SKIF-Montreal Sensei, Rick Valiquette and Michel Hurtubise, traveled 5 hours through the plains and mountains, down from Canada, on two separate February weekends this winter to train at the Maine Shotokan Karate Association Dojo.  Mike Cook and Lisa Turner Sensei trained with their Canadian friends, reviewing in detail,  the SKIF syllabus from 9th Kyu to San Dan level in Kihon, Kata, and Kumite upwards of 6+hrs per day...You know at the end of training... when the "dogi" is dripping wet ...and the Dojo windows are steamed up with humidity, that we all  trained with great spirit and effort!
