Renshi Guy Oullette Was Incredible

We had the great pleasure to have Renshi Guy Oullette in Calgary for a few days in March. From the incredible self-defence classes he held for adults and teens alike, to the sparring, conditioning, and skills training he gave… …it was the experience of a lifetime! Here’s a few pictures of his training classes in Calgary.

From all of us at 5 Elements Martial Arts…
