The morning session focused on the correct technique for punching and how best to utilise punching combinations with foot work from the earlier warm-ups.
The two-hour afternoon session saw them working up a sweat with punches, kicks, combinations, stamina and kumite (fighting) finishing off a long day.

This was a great way for students to work with different fighters at the camp, and to put into practice what they had learned the previous day.

Overall the camp was a huge success, with students proudly showing off their bruises and looking forward to the next one.
