    I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the photos of the Lake Arrowhead Martial Arts camp. It’s nice to see the extreme focus, that the students maintain; while doing their katas/techniques, etc…

    Even the younger students displayed full-attention to what they were doing, definitely they were in the moment. It’s nice to see such discipline within a group of all ages.

    It’s great to see the training included; Lots of Karate, Tai Chi training, Qigong sessions, meditation sessions and instruction, kobudo / Okinawan weapons (the Sai), Yoga, and lectures.

    In my opinion (IMO), all the training listed above is very beneficial to becoming a better Martial Artist, and the practices all complement each other.
