Camp is always so much fun! This August Juniors camp was larger than usual and so we have more than the usual photos. What happens in camp? Well, there's Taekwon-do classes, of course but there's more..
There's circle time to get to know everyone.
There are lectures and discussions like what are "the four ways to block"? How do you defend against a skipping front turning kick? and time was spent brain storming and planning the demonstration for Friday.
Juniors camp culminates in the demo. How was the demo? Well, see for yourself. First everyone joined together to do Chun-Ji:
Then the black belts did Kwang-Gae, the first pattern a students learns on becoming a Black Belt.
Calendar events are subject to change.
