National Training Camp

Our 2015 Annual Training Camp will be held on the Gold Coast on the weekend of October 30 and runs from 4pm Friday to 10am Sunday.

The camp offers a unique opportunity for all members to meet and share experiences and also gives our members a fantastic opportunity to meet instructors from all over Australia, unfortunately the logistics involved in organising  the National Training Camp only make it available to adult members but most regions do provide local "Club Days" to especially cater for our younger members and those members that cannot make the Camp due to distance, cost etc.

At the National Training Camp our Master and Senior Instructors will provide the leadership and guidance required to ensure the camps ultimate success and we look forward to our Branch Instructors and colour belt members all benefiting greatly from their many years of experience.

This years event looks like being even bigger than it has been in the past so bookings are essential, bookings close on September 1.

The Camp will operate from 4pm Friday 30th October and will end at 10am on Sunday 1st of November and is open to all adult members from white belt to black belt without exception.
