It’s been a while since we did a proper training camp in Australia, the last three years of mini camps where I have gone to teach at the individual schools across the country have been great, but now it’s time to bring everyone back together! For a good old Taiji camp! 

I run one of these every year in Europe, where many people from all over come to learn, even from further afield like America.
Camps make for such a better learning experience than workshops, because everyone lives together for the week, rather than just coming in for the training each day then going home.
There’s so much more to be had than just the official class times, as there will always be someone there all hours who you can train with, to get that much needed two person work that a lot of people don’t get.
It’s also a friendship making, with everyone eating training and sleeping all in the same location for the week, it’s just a great fun time had by all.

So this year in October we’re putting on the Camp!

What you will get from camp:

  • Lacation, Ocean Country Park, 100 Duffields Road, Torquay, Victoria (just outside Melbourne)
    80mins from Tullamarine, 35mins from Avalon Airport, 20mins from Marshall Train Station.

  • Simple accommodation for all students, in the form of dormitory style beds, where people will share a room with a few other students.
    So you’ll only have to bring your own sleeping bag and pillow etc. Or you can bring your own tent or campervan etc. 
    If you prefer something more up market then you can book yourself a hotel in Torquay.

  • Toilets and showers are of course available. 

  • A dining room where you will be served three meals a days on all 6 training days
    Everyone eating has to pitch in to clean up.

  •  Indoor and outdoor training area for all weather training in comfort. 

  • 6 days training 8+ hours per day (You don’t have to do it all if you don’t want)
    The 28th is arrival day, the 5th is leaving day, training days are 29th till 4th.
