Foundations Training Camp UK

(With Eli Montaigue, Head of the WTBA)

Foundation Training Camp 
April 3rd till 13th 2018

What to expect at this years camp:
Foundation Camp is about training, and lots of it!
As usual we will be focusing on the foundation forms and training methods, but this camp there is a extra option for more training at the end of camp. 
Camp is always 6 full days training, covering everything that is listed on the menu, but this camp we will give you the option to stay another 3 days to consolidate what you have learnt. 
In the extra 3 days there will most likely less people, so the idea is to take what you have learnt over the week and consolidate it. 
Eli will not teach anymore new moves, the training sessions will be made up like a private class, so you will just practice, Eli will watch over you and correct any errors, and you can ask all the questions you need.
And of course if you can only make it to a portion of camp, that's fine, let us know and we'll give you a price for how long you can attend.

Plus if you book in early you will get 9 MTG videos free to download valued at over £90.

What will be taught:

YLC Form
For the form we will be trying to get through the third 3rd at it's foundation level, as we did in 2017 with the second 3rd, and the first 3rd in 2016.
This was very well received by both the beginners and the advanced, as no matter how long you've been training, it is mastering the foundation level that will take your form higher.
There will also be time for questions etc for more advanced details. 
Do not worry if you did not attend the last two camps, as the thirds are like separate forms,
you don't need to have the first two down in order to learn the 3rd.
Wudang Hand Weapons
All 12 methods will be taught, two each day. We have done these here and there before, but this camp we will do all 12, so you can go away being sure you have them all down, especially if you stay for the extra 3 days to train them more.  
Bagua Circular Form
For those Bagua enthusiasts in the group, Eli will be teaching palm changes 5 to 8. 
Qigong and Stretching 
Will be practiced every morning. 
With warm ups to help with Qi flow to better enhance your Qigong practice. 
Push Hands will be practiced every evening after dinner, in an informal manor, 
where everyone will simply practice, and Eli will be there training with you giving advice on how to improve.
As well as anything else people want to practice.
