This awesome training opportunity is coming to Texas! The focus of the camp is on building community and development of effective training techniques and strategies. It is not a competition-style camp. Safety and fun around learning Brazilian jiu-jitsu and submission grappling are our major concerns.
The primary instructors are black belts Emily Kwok and Valerie Worthington. These instructors supervise all of the instruction, including but not limited to technique sessions, round tables and panel discussions, and troubleshooting.
We will kick off the camp with a dinner Friday night!
The proposed camp would feature:
• Two full days (Saturday and Sunday) encompassing
one two-hour morning and one two-hour afternoon technique/rolling
session each day;
o One round table/panel discussion session each day
• a Monday morning open mat, usually with selected male training partners invited
• Multiple breaks, for campers to rest, do laundry, and eat
We will also have a group dinner to socialize and have further discussions on Saturday or Sunday.
Early registration by 12/15: $250
After 12/15: $299
