Training at camp (often known as Shochugeiko or Kangeiko) is a tradition within the Japanese martial arts that provides the student with an opportunity to reach new heights in their training. For centuries, traditional karate students (karateka) have been training in the hottest part of summer or coldest part of the winter in intensive mental and physical work over the course of three days (and in some historical cases up to 30 days). We have found that this type of training is the most effective way to forge the spirit of future black belts.
Exciting New Curriculum taught at this retreat will include the learning of rare katas, weapons jitsu, Tae Sabaki/Aikido, Hanbo Jitsu, bokken and jo, body conditioning and mental focus training.
100% of Revenue will go to two families that we are sponsoring due to the Lahaina, Maui Fires
Sensei and his family are very fortunate that they are housing two families who were displaced by the fire. Thank you for helping us to make things a little easier for them.
What to Expect at Camp:
Several 1.5 hour classes per day, focused on mastering the fundamentals of katas, weapons, sparring, and partner drills. These workouts will delve into the finer points of how to perform the moves along with the bunkai meanings. Expect to learn new katas, partner drills, and material.
Following in the tradition of our federation (Kiyobukan), we will be holding a tournament on the Saturday evening of camp. Camp attendees receive a $10 discount for the tournament.
