Several of the ISKA Black Belts jumped into action to help identify and secure an alternate location for the 2018 camp. I would like to personally thank Kyoshi Peter Johnson for the recommendation and Master Sensei Carter for physically visiting the location and videoing the site for us to view.
The YMCA Camp has 4 Villages and the ISKA Summer Camp will be held at the Wasiata Village at the YMCA Camp. The logistics of the YMCA camp are similar to the ones at the Fish Camp with bunkhouse accommodations. One major advantage is that the YMCA Camp is located an hour from the San Francisco or San Jose airports, for easy access via Super Shuttle, other airport shuttles or Uber, which is a plus for participants traveling from International and National locations. We will also have a dedicated training hall, the Perkins Lodge, separate from the dining hall. There are many other positive amenities of this location.

Another exciting development for the 2018 ISKA Summer Camp is that we will have Sensei Rick Hotton, Founder of Sunday Morning Keiko, join us as a guest instructor. Sensei Hotton’s philosophy on good Karate is consistent with the ISKA Senseis teachings based on basic principles, biomechanics and physics of total body action to generate maximum power. Here are a couple YouTube videos with some of Sensei Hotton’s presentations:
