    BCA Residential Course

    Post by Al Peasland on Fri Oct 17, 2008 7:12 pm

    Celebrating 15 years of the British Combat Association


    Celebrating 15 years at the very top of the U.K. martial arts scene, the British Combat Association will this year be holding a residential course in November, showcasing the very best exponents of not only practical personal combat, but of traditional systems and how they can be made to work in many spheres of life.

    Whether you want to learn how to impact like a train, grapple for competition or combat, understand the psychology of close quarter combat, or how to develop explosive speed in punching and kicking, this course will have it all. This is an opportunity not to miss, to train and mix with some of the U.K's top practitioners.

    This will undoubtedly be a one of a kind seminar and seminal moment in the martial arts.

    RESIDENTIAL COURSE November 27th, 28th, 29th & 30th

    The layout of the course will be; enrolling Thursday afternoon, with an introduction in the evening by Geoff and myself and a Q&A session across any topics students need to discuss. Friday is a full day of training sessions and lectures, as is Saturday, and we will have concurrent sessions running, so people will be able to make every session, but in manageable groups.

    We will have a bit of a bash' on Saturday evening to celebrate the BCA's 15th Birthday! Sunday morning training (v. light!), will, therefore, be optional, followed by a brunch and away home.

    INSTRUCTOR COURSE DISCOUNTS

    Any instructor who brings 5 students will get a 50% discount, bring 10 students or more and come FREE the students have to come for the full course. No discounts are available for the Day' courses. Book now!

    NO this is for everyone espiecially begginers. You start at this level and you will definely know what to attain to with your training in the future.Get there if you can whatever your level.Thses oppotunities come along once in a life time think of the people this will attract. Not just the instructers but the people attending too.

    Youll have three days so youll probably wont have to que these people may be at the very top of the tree but when it comes down to things like that they will be more than courtious. I know all of the instructors will be more that happy to have photos with you.

    Hi Dave

    Great session today by the way - you were working really hard - well done mate

    Yeah, just shorts/trackies and t-shirt for these events.
    Best to bring your own glove and focus mits if you have some - but there's always some you can borrow if not.

    Beer money is essential :-)
