Who can attend?
Anyone. It doesn’t matter what style you study, what rank you are, whether you are a beginner or an expert, you will get something out of this training camp.
Is this an instructor camp?
Yes. However, if you are wanting to be a new instructor, there will be an extra cost in addition to the cost of the camp. Additionally, if you are a current instructor, attending this camp will keep you certified, and give Grandmaster Frank an opportunity to evaluate you for level advancement.
What are you doing to keep students COVID safe?
If you are concerned about being exposed, there is a virtual training option.
All attendees will be temperature checked when they arrive each morning for training. Attendees are free to wear a mask, especially if you are unable to maintain a 6 foot distance from your partner. Masks will not be supplied. We will be sanitizing training equipment before each morning’s session and after lunch.
How will virtual training work?
Each session will be streamed using Zoom. Each virtual attendee will receive a session # and password. After the camp is over, video of the virtual sessions will be available to those attendees.
Do you have to attend the Camp to go to the Birthday BBQ?
Yes and No. Only attendees can attend the BBQ even if you attend just one day or the entire camp. However, you can bring someone with you to the BBQ if you are going to attend.
I am flying in, where do I fly into? Which hotel is the best to stay in?
You will be flying into Portland International Airport (PDX). Any hotel in the area would be suitable. (local hotels will be listed here in the future)
Will there be knives for sale at the camp?
There will be limited quantities. If you are seriously interested in getting a Bram Frank knife at the camp, contact Sensei Mish and he will have Bram bring one out for you.
As a school owner how may students do I need to bring to get in free?
Four. All that is needed is 4 of your student to attend. Preferably they should register online, but this can also be done at the door. Send me the names of your 4 students and I will send you a code for you to register for free.
