This year, the Alliance blackbelt camp team was missing three of our ranking veterans, but also boasted four new, young blackbelts. Saturday saw some excellent practice with handwork, footwork, kicking and takedowns. Saturday night saw a late arrival in camp and setting up in the dark, while Sunday morning saw a wash of rainstorms. Sunday training included hapkido techniques for defense and counter-attacks, and put everybody down in the mud. All told it was another good weekend of outdoor training and fellowship.
