For Martial Arts Schools
The MartialArts Association of Canada is encouraging martial arts schools from across Ontario to participate in the event. Schools can get involved by registering their students to do a 15-minute demonstration to showcase their talents. A school can also apply to set-up a tent in Improve, where they can hand out marketing materials to attendees. This is first come first serve, so we encourage schools to register sooner rather than later.
You can register your school to be a part of this event by filling out our online form here.
