    I wonder how many of you participate in summer training camps, and how do they look like. How many days? With your own instructors or do you invite guests from other clubs, or maybe from abroad? What do you mainly train during camps?

    In our school it's usually 10 days training in some nice location (this year - Polish mountains), with foreign instructors. We do all kinds of stuff like grappling, acrobatics, Capoeira, but also TKD and HKD. And we just have lots of fun...

    The video from this year's summer camp is available here:

    Summer Camp 2005 (23 MB, DivX, 6:50 mins)

    It features Master Kytu Dang 7th Dan, Master Pyo Rak Sun 7th Dan, Double Dragon Team members and of course our buddy Lukasz "Juras" Jurkowski. Plus some fighting footage from a friendly TKD vs local Kick-Boxing match we had during the camp.

    We have a yearly weekend summer camp. In fact it's on friday. :cool:

    Consists of 3, 2-3 hour training sessions over friday, saturday and sunday.
    Saturday is an 'official lesson normally with a senior instructor, this year I believe it is Mr Kenny Walton 7th Dan.

    The other lessons are alot more freestyle and may consist anything, from self defense, weapons, pressure points, grappling to team games, or a 'open rumble' sparring session.

    The camps held on a holiday camp, there's a pool a couple of bars and a disco, and its worth going just to see some of the instructors attempt to strut their stuff on the dance floor, and there's always a good party back at a chalet after the bars close. Needless to say some people are a bit slow on their feet on saturday and sunday mornings. However the social side is just as important as the training.

    I went to summer camp once in France. Most of the training was at the Centre itself but they went off during the morning to the beach.
    They wanted me to stay the whole week but unfortunately I came home.

    Now that would be cool to get a few TAGB people from MAP to come next year. Dragon 2020 are you going this year cos i know that you train with Mr Saunders and he organises it? :)
