Camp Kodenkan Midwest 2014

Gina Swordmaster

July 31 - August 3, 2014

We are excited about having Camp Kodenkan Midwest 2014 in Duluth again this year from July 31st to August 3, 2014. Professor Tom Jenkins and Senior Instructor Tim Merrill will be the visiting instructors. The 3 Minnesota Godans will all be there and many other skillful Midwest black belts.. We will offer black belt exams, if you notify me by July 1, 2014. You must be an AJJF member to attend.

There are some MAJOR changes for this year:
1. Since we provide all the food for camp, this year there is a NO EXCUSES late registration fee for all registrations received after midnight on Tuesday, July 15th.
2. We have camping on 5 acres of wooded land or two campers with 6 beds total, a hot tubs, obstacle course, sauna, 3 fire rings, 2 dojos and one old goat!
3. We will cover all DZR lists, live sword cutting and do plenty of judo instruction, too.
4. We will have a class on wrestling for the first time in camp history.
5. Saturday night will will again be doing the live-blade cutting with pool noodles and tatami.

Greed, idiocy, arrogance and corruption warning:
I wrestled at UMD for 3 seasons 1978-1980. The program was dropped, but I was never sure why until I read this amazing article.
