Budo Canada had the pleasure of being invited to the annual Marlee Street festival just a few blocks away from our location. It was an excellent opportunity to meet the community and learn about so many wonderful small businesses in the area.
Working with the community to build strong relationships is important in every aspect of one's life. We look forward to taking part in the festival again next year.

The Conor McGregor and Floyd Mayweather press tour stopped in Toronto on Wednesday night and the two men got quite the welcome from Toronto including the city's own rapper Drake. Budo Canada was fortunate to have back stage passes to the press conference, and it certainly was one to remember for years to come. It was a pleasure meeting these two amazing athletes and we look forward to their historic bout on August 26th.
