By the time we have completed the program, your skills and understanding will have dramatically increased.  These mental and physical skills will continue for the rest of the year (hopefully your life) as the information begins to sink in.

This is an opportunity to train the way you want to.  While some may only want 2 hours a day for 2 weeks, that still totals to 20 hours of instruction with a lifetime expert martial arts Instructor.  Perhaps you are going all-in with 5 hours a day for the whole month, which equates to over 100 hours of education.

Why Should You Come?

We wanted to provide people an opportunity to get out in the summer and learn a new skill while they develop mind, body, and spirit.  A chance to train in the martial arts, improve their health and meet other people at the same time.  All with the opportunity to adventure outdoors in places like Yosemite National Park.

We run long-term training camps in Asia (Thailand on the island of Koh Samui). This is far away for many people, so we wanted to give those that can’t travel to Thailand, a chance to experience our martial arts programs in the USA.

Where Will You Train?

The next Martial Arts Summer Camp will be in Fresno, California, USA and Yosemite National Park

We conduct training all outside, on the grass and for the benefits of fresh air.

When you sign up, you will get more details and information as well as a PDF with directions and instructions and ideas to help you prepare.

Fresno is the 6th largest City in California and considered to be the gateway to Yosemite National Park. It is home to many great outdoor escapes.  We use North Fresno, so you will have plenty of shops and interest points to keep you busy when you are not training.

  • Riverpark Shopping (Imax movies, REI, Restaurants and a good place to hangout)
  • Costco, Wallmart and Sam’s Club are all here if you need to shop
  • Starbucks and every kind of tea is only a hop, skip, and a flying-side-kick away

Where Will You Stay?

Since you may be visiting from out of state, your home away from home is for you to choose.  Therefore, this could be at a nearby camp, in an apartment hotel, or a shared room with us. Just mark your calendar and show up each day for some training. You can get 1-30 days of martial arts, mental programming, fitness and group fun.

In the past, Students have chosen small hotel rooms with kitchens like Extended Stay.

What Will You Eat?

What you eat is up to you, but we will provide meal suggestions so you can get the best out of the program, have lots of energy and develop a healthy eating routine.

When To Come?

We are holding the 1-4 week martial arts summer camp in the summer month of July in, California.

You can join us for the full 30 days or if your time is short, you can attend for a week or more too. We will do training 7-9am for Kids and 9-3pm for Adults. This will be Monday-Friday.

Rather than mixing the outdoor adventure part of the training with the week schedule, we will use the weekends. You will have the option to adventure in Yosemite National Park and Neighboring areas. These days are for rock climbing, rappelling, hiking, camping or just being outside. These are all optional.  You are also welcome to sign up for the Adventure Weekends too.

What To Bring?

For training purposes, bring some shorts or pants that are flexible and practical for martial arts training.  Colors should be black or gray and with no logos. If you need additional t-shirts/polos for training, you can bring your own plain, dark colored ones, or order additional outfits on our website. You can also order a Uniform, (traditional martial arts outfit). Please check the Gear page to see what you need and how to order it.

Other than that, bring a great attitude and items you will need for personal performance.
