After last years success we are going to do it again for 2018!
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 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 get booked in and come to 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 6.5 hours of classes per day (You don’t have to do it all if you don’t want)
    The 8th is arrival day, the 15th is leaving day, training days are 9th till 14th.

Training Schedule:
7:30am Warm ups
7:45am Standing Qigong, done each morning with the focus on getting correct structure and posture 
8am YLC Form, Each day we take a set of postures from the form, working through them in detail teaching you how to move, not just teaching you a sequence, but looking closely in at how to move the body. 
9am Breakfast
10am Self Defence training, In this section we will be looking at all things fighting, Dim Mak, Fa-jing, Joint Locks, Attack Defence etc, this part of the workshop should hurt, you should end up bruised, but of course you can also take it easy and just learn the movements if you have an injury or something.
12pm Lunch
2pm Bagua Circular Form, taught from the start at a basic foundation level for beginners, but shown in greater detail for instructors. 
3pm
Cannon Fist Large San Sau. The explosive Taiji fighting form will be taught through at both basic and advanced levels, firstly going through the solo A and B parts, then showing you how to put it together with your partner. Emphasis will be placed on learning timing, balance and proper reaction skills in the partner form, not just dancing through with no attention to detail.
5pm Break Time
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 till September 1st to get the early book fee. 

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.
