Fall Training Camp - Columbia, SC Dojo

We held another successful training camp on Saturday, October 25th, 2008. The training was held from 12:30 to 5:30 and followed by a dinner at the dojo at 6:00. Sensei John Wyndham covered reversals and recoveries from Nihon Goshin Aikido, Sensei John Carter and Jack Walker taught students how to integrate techniques from Nihon Goshin Aikido and Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. The camp finished up with Sensei Gary Shull teaching movement and striking principles from Kempo. We had students in attendance from South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia, Virginia, and Tennessee totaling 40 participants. Everyone had a great time and we all learned much about all the Martial Arts represented. I appreciate those who travelled to our academy in support of our training camp and especially appreciate all the Columbia dojo students who helped with organizing the event. Our student body showed a warm and welcoming spirit to all our visitors. We look forward to hosting another camp soon.
