Campers will spend a week learning the traditional form of archery practiced for over 2,000 years in China. We will learn the basics of how to shoot, how to be safe, & how to care for your bow and arrows. Campers will even get to make their own arrow! At the end of the week you can bring home your bow and arrows and continue to practice at any of the nearby free archery ranges. We will also have games and basic martial arts skills (as befits any warrior, including archers).
This week will be spent learning the basic spinning and fighting techniques with one long stick, and a pair of short sticks. We will cut a pair of short sticks and a long stick for each camper to make sure they are the perfect size, and each camper will get to decorate and keep their sticks. We will also play martial arts games and have obstacle courses! The week will end with a demonstration of a short fight choreography from the campers that they will develop in teams all week.
Campers will practice and learn traditional noncompetitive Chinese martial arts. Each day we will work on falling, kicks, & defense to build strength, coordination, teamwork, & self confidence. As the campers learn each day they will build a short fight choreography to demonstrate at the end of the week! Have fun and get exercise in this safe environment. We will also play martial arts games and do obstacle courses set up by the campers themselves.
Campers will spend this week focusing on precision and discipline through the art of sword fighting. They will learn to use one sword in two hands and a pair of swords, to attack, defend, and counter. We will use safe bamboo practice swords and learn a lot about control and safety to make sure every camper is ready for an end-of-week demonstration! At the end of the week the campers will keep their swords. We will also play games, and work on obstacle courses.
