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 the USA.
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!

It will be held somewhere just outside Melbourne, so you can fly into Melbourne, then we’ll let you know how to get to the venue.
We’re just deciding between two at the moment and will have that sorted in the next couple of weeks.

But where ever it is, it will have the following. 

  • A location within easy access of Melbourne city. 

  • 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. 

  •  Maybe there will be the possibility to pay extra to have a private room. 

  • Toilets and showers will of course be available. 

  • A dining room where you will be served three meals a days. 

  •  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.

  • Those who pay in advance will receive free to download a set of videos covering most of what will be taught, including 
    MTG 404 YLC Taiji Form 
    MTG 403 Small San Sau 
    MTG 10 Basic Qigong 
    MTG 409 and 410 Wu-Dang Hand Weapons 
    MTG 411 Single Push Hands 
    Total value $100AU

All this for the low price of somewhere between $700-$800. Or only $500 if you're a first timer.
The exact price will be calculated in the next couple of weeks once we sort out venue and catering costs, but it should not be more than $800 all in.
There will also be the option of attending half camp, or even single days, costs for this will be available soon. 

Training Schedule:
7:30am Stretching and warm ups
8am Standing Qigong, and YLC form first third done as a Qigong
9am Breakfast
10am The 12 Wu-dang Hand Weapons (Two each day)

4pm Break Time
5pm Small San Sau, the solo form will be taught to the beginners in the group, and the two person set will be shown for the advanced students and instructors.
7pm Dinner
After dinner is free time for training anything you want, grab a partner and work on what you learnt in the day, or just do some push hands, or perhaps practice something else you’ve been working on at home, as Eli will be there to help and answer any questions there might be.


So please book in now so we can get an idea of numbers, if you’re not sure yet if you can make it but want to, then book in as a maybe, you will not need to pay anything just yet, you will receive an email sometime after booking in with details of payment etc.

We want this camp to be a big gathering, bringing everyone together to meet and train.
So if you are a teacher, please encourage your students to come, I will be teaching so that everyone will learn a great deal, whether you’re a seasoned instructor or a stark beginner.
