    As with many of Enso’s events, they would not be possible without the great efforts and help of our community. We’d be grateful for your help to make this February’s dojo tournament a fun, healthy, and smooth running event for all! Please complete our volunteer sign-up form so we know when you might be available to help out and what activities you’d prefer.
