Nathan Pendergast, Krysten Turner and Andrew Schladetsch made their way to the surf coast at 4
These movements involved moving lightly back and forth on the feet and then side to side, followed by adding punches to these movements.
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.
Sunday morning kicked off at 7.30
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.
In the afternoon students all had the opportunity to display what they had learned by sparring (fighting) other fighters non-stop until they had sparred with everybody on their particular side.
Overall the camp was a huge success, with students proudly showing off their bruises and looking forward to the next one.
