ABOUT LAST YEAR'S CAMP: The 30th Annual ISKA Summer Camp (2018)
The 30th Annual ISKA Summer Camp was held August 10-12th, 2018 at the YMCA Camp Jones Gulch in Pescadero, CA. With around 70 participants from all over California and other areas of the US, we had a great camp, celebrating 30 years of camp tradition.
This year, we were happy to host a special guest instructor, Sensei Rick Hotton, founder of Sunday Morning Keiko, and instructor at the West Wind Dojo in Sarasota, Florida. Sensei Hotton travels frequently within the US and Europe, sharing his unique perspectives on Karate practice and Life. His influences draw not just from 40+ years practice in traditional karate, but also Aikido training with Sensei Matsugi Saotome, amongst others.
The ISKA Summer Camp also featured instruction from ISKA President, Hanshi Rick Llewelyn, and ISKA Technical Director, Hanshi Robert Stevenson as well as other very skilled and accomplished ISKA affiliated instructors.
This was our first year at Camp Jones Gulch and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive as the location was convenient, the food was great, and the training hall provided ample space for all types of training sessions.
the ISKA Senseis' teachings based on basic principles, biomechanics, and physics of total body action to generate maximum power and we feel that his teachings - physical, mental, and emotional - will greatly enhance your karate practice.
Sensei Hotton has been training for over 46 years and in 2014, upon the encouragement of his students, began creating videos of some of his teachings. He has since given seminars all over the world and many are featured on his YouTube Channel (link below) and in the member content section at www.sundaymorningkeiko.org.
Sensei Hotton was featured in the October 2015 Issue of Shotokan Karate Magazine. Check out images and snippets from the issue here.
