It's been a while, so we're going to do Australia camp in May 14th-20th 2022
All aspects of wtba training will be covered.
Book now so you don't miss out on the group accommodation,
otherwise you'll have to get your own which will cost a lot more. 

So don't miss out on this great opportunity for training, friendship and an all round good time!
Check out the details below and get your spot booked now!


      Training Schedule: 
(There is a lot on the schedule, beginners may like to only do certain sessions)
7:30am Qigong and Taiji Form.
Various qigongs both static and moving will be practiced to get our day started,
then we will look at Taiji form postures in detail. 
9am Breakfast.
10am Self Defence Training. (Set drills)
This is where we pair up with a partner and practice attack defence drills,
starting off very soft and slow for beginners to gain flow and timing,
then only those who are capable will increase power and speed. 
This are of training is very important to properly understand your slow form practice.
When done slowly the drills should feel like you are doing a slow form but with a partner like a dance,
speed them up and they will feel like fighting,
so you will practice at the level you are comfortable with. 

12pm Lunch.
2pm Bagua Circular Form.
We will take certain moves from this form as well as the circle walking, break them down and learn how to move.
The idea is not to learn a large sequence of movements, but rather understand the principles of movement which can then apply to everything you practice. 
3pm Taiji Form.
We will take certain moves from the Taiji form, break them down and learn how to move.
The idea is not to learn a large sequence of movements, but rather understand the principles of movement which can then apply to everything you practice.
4pm Self Defence Training (Free Movement) 
This is where we learn to react, unlike the set drills done earlier, here it's free movement. 
However, don't be scared, only those with previous fighting experience will be actually fighting. 
Those with out prior experience will be doing the training at a soft slow level,
focussing on learning how to read your partners movement and know where they will attack from. 
5pm Play Time.
This is where everyone can just train in what they want, either the stuff we have been covering,
or perhaps you know another form you want to work on, or do some push hands etc. 
Eli will be wondering around giving corrections and answering questions.
Or you can just go take a break.
7pm Dinner. 
Eli will be teaching so that everyone will learn a great deal, whether you’re a seasoned instructor or a stark beginner.
