Really a good bunch to get to know and listen to, and also to make friends with.
It is amazing what you can learn just by watching or just listening to these 'specialists'...things that cannot be taught in traditional ways as the 'street confrontation' knowledge is much too varied.
If you have ever thought that you may have to use karate in self defense, then you will do yourself a great disservice by NOT attending this year's camp.
I also have found over the years, a deaf ear to potential civil liability survival, once using karate for self defense.
It is really comical for me to see even high rank practitioners, master ranks, etc._ gloss over this critical knowledge.
These are the people who, after 'defending' themselves...will have a case of 'knee buckling' after being served with a summons a complaint to appear in court on a civil suit, and, having tendered the summons and complaint to their home owner's Liability insurance company_ are told their insurance policy does not cover their 'self defense' response action.
So they will have to retain their own personal defense attorney, experts and investigators for trial preparation $$$$$$
and if found liable in a civil trial...they will have to dig into their bank accounts, savings, 401K retiring accounts and mortgage their house, to pay a judgment against you.
Best of luck
I will be available at camp to give some advice on what you need to do ...to avoid your knees knocking together down the road.
