  • Discounts available for families registering more than one person.
  • Participants must provide their own lunch and snacks (We do have a refrigerator and microwave)
  • It is highly recommended that participants complete the whole four weeks. This is indeed a great opportunity to advance in rank. There will be a Rank Testing at the end of the Camp; it is not guaranty, as it all depends on the student efforts, but students participating in our camp could take advantage of this great opportunity for advancement in rank.
  • For students participating in our whole four weeks of camp their next Rank Testing Fee is waved. A reminder that a four-week participation does not guaranty that the student will be ready for our August Rank Testing. However, for students that participate in our four-week camp, whenever the instructor determines that they are ready, that next Rank Testing Fee is waved.
  • For the students already registered in our program your monthly tuition for your regular classes is waved if participating in at least two weeks.
