October 21st-28th 2023 (Fully Booked)
For other camps you can book into, please click below. 
Foundations Training Camp
Instructors Training Camp
Or if you really want to attend this one, get in touch and we'll let you know if there is a cancelation, 

These are special training camps for WTBA members, limited to around 10 students per event.
The idea is that you get close to a private class at a fraction of the cost. 
Training in what ever you need to work on most.

Don't miss out, make sure you book in now.
Want to bring your non training partner?
There are two extra beds, so there might be a chance your partner can stay with us for an accommodation fee. 

What will it be like:
6 days training, 6 hours per day, with the small group of students, you get a lot more hands on time with Eli and attention to your personal training, compared to a normal camp with 40+ people. 

You'll get close to the attention of a private class. 
With a private class in form, you get some corrections, then you need to practice for 10 minutes before moving on, otherwise you won't retain it.
So with this small group, the only real difference is that while you're practicing, Eli will be walking around giving others their corrections, then he circles back to you. 
For partner work, it will be the same thing, you'll have some time working with Eli, he'll point out what you need to work on, then you practice it with another student. 
The benefit of this, training martial drills with a variety of people, means you're learning to read and feel movement from a wide range of bodies, not just you're teacher. 
Plus you'll also benefit from seeing the tips and corrections given to other students.

Who is it for:
All skill levels, as long as you have something to work on.
Remember this is a personal development camp, so you need to have something to develop, you will not be taught from scratch at this at this camp. 
If you prefer a camp where you are taught the forms and drills from scratch, try our Foundations Training Camp.

What can you choose to work on:
Anything you want, within reason.
Basically anything that is regarded a primary WTBA method should be fine. 
If you want to train a non regular form, like the Wudang Qi Disruptions, or the Bagua Animals, Eli may not have the one you want fresh in his own training, so just ask before booking in. 
For partner training, same as above, only there is one other thing to consider, you won't be training with Eli the whole time, he needs to move around and work with everyone, so, if you want to do some rare training methods no one else knows, you would only be able to train them a small amount of time with Eli. 
It's better to focus on the main methods we teach, unless of course you come with your own training partner, which is a great idea!
