These are special training camps for WTBA Instructors, limited to 11 people per event for more hands on time with Eli.
If you are not yet a WTBA instructor, then you'll be better off attending one of the Foundations Camps.
Places books out fast, make sure you book in no to save your place. 

Who is it for:

These camps are for WTBA instructors only. 
An assistant instructor will be considered if they can't make the dates for one of the foundation camps. 
Usually we get people of grades 1 to 3 attending these, so you should be able to find someone to practice with who is working on the same grade as you. 
And of course everyone will mix up as well. 

What will it be like:

There will be 7 hours of training each day. 
The camp will be limited to 11 people, the purpose of this is that you get far more hands on training with Eli. 
Eli will teach and explain the general principles to the whole group,  or sub groups, he will then go around and give individual advice to every student throughout each session. 
Gradings will be possible during camp. 

Aside from the training, we'll be staying right on the sea.
It is a great escape from the cold, warm sunny training and swimming in the sea during the break time. 
Check out the videos and pictures below. 

What will be taught:
Since everyone attending will already be at instructor rank, what we train in will depend on who is attending. 
Eli will talk with each instructor to see what they want to get out of camp, then plan a schedule around that. 
The best thing is to 
work through the WTBA syllabus of the Instructor grades. 
Keep in mind, if you are only graded in forms for example, then you can choose to practice form for the full camp. 
If you are only graded in forms and want to start your partner drills and or combat, then you would need to join one of the foundation camps, since you can't start push hands for example at an instructor level if you have only done form.
