AMA Karate Camp Descriptions
Our goal for each camp is to provide a fun, safe, constructive, and positive environment in which children can learn and practice martial arts basics, drills, skills and forms tailored to, and complemented, by that week’s theme.
All camps are ages 7-12 and 9am-3pm unless otherwise noted. If you have other questions feel free to contact us.
AMA HYPER WEAPONS CAMP
The AMA Hyper Weapons Camp is specifically designed for AMA students *Orange belt & up who are looking for more of a challenge! Hyper = High Performance — it is the most difficult variation of a trick on the competitive martial arts circuit and represents pushing yourself to improve and reach new goals. Each Hyper camp will focus on 1 weapon: Sword, Kamas or Chux as the primary weapon and martial arts tricking and kicking skills.
