Newbies are welcome
Everyone gets entry to summer camp. There is no hard and fast rule that you must have previous experience. A number of students went on to became martial arts champions later in life as they enjoyed the summer camps and then took the decision to further hone their skills. The camp is suitable not only for the beginner but also for intermediate ones. If your child has the skill, he or she can advance to the next rank too. Camps begin after school recesses for the summer. You can send your child early in the morning.
