Summer Camp 2012

Summer Camp 2012 is quickly approaching!  Here you can find all of the information you'll need regarding the event!  If you plan to attend, please let Sensei Hines know ASAP so that she can make sure we have enough rooms reserved!  Below are attached multiple documents that you mind find helpful.  The Bulletin contains the information you see below. Also attached, is the application for Summer Camp.  Please mail it in ASAP so that you avoid the $10 late fee!

Summer Camp Format:
This year we’re trying something a little different. Students will be allowed to choose which classes they'd like to take throughout the day (subject to some limitations). The large variety of classes that we will offer should allow participants the freedom to focus their Summer Camp training on the specific skills they want to work the most on or that they need the most help in, and will allow them to work with instructors who are just as excited as they are about the material that they’re teaching! Young children will be divided into a separate group for their training as usual. 

Participants must pre-register for the event by June 8, 2012 so we will know how much food to prepare. The cost is $55.00 per students, or $85 for a family of two or $100 for a family of three or more. This includes a juice break, lunch and the cookout! You may pre-register by downloading the application (if you didn’t get one in the mail) from this page (see below) and submitting it to:

World Yoshukai Karate Kobudo Organization (WYKKO)
DOTHAN, AL 36301

The Classes:
A final schedule will be posted the day of the event with detailed information on the classes that students may choose from, but the schedule will include classes on kata, weapons, point sparring, full contact fighting, self-defense, kickboxing, advanced black belt training, grappling/falling, ippon kumite and many more. There will also be classes on learning how to teach, how to judge tests (both kyu grade and black belt tests) and how to judge events at tournaments. 

Your instructors have a complete schedule of the events that may be offered, and there's a complete schedule that you can download below from this page.  Please let your instructors know what classes you would prefer to attend, or contact Ms. Hines or Sensei McCullars with your preferences. The more input we have from participants, the better chances we’ll have of scheduling classes in such a way that the majority of people can take the classes that they most want to!

The Master Schedule:
The day will be broken down into 6 periods, with 6 or more classes being offered during each period. Each class will be 50 minutes long, with a 10 minute break in between each class.
