CMAA Campers & Samurai Legends

There are many reasons students enjoy our nine weeks of camp each summer. These include the martial arts classes, water fun, gymnastics, games, arts & crafts and movies. But for many campers the best part is learning to work with a weapon.

This summer the weapon Sensei selected is a wooded sword with a sheath. They are fun, of course, but also require great concentration to master the combinations of blocks, strikes, spins and footwork. Want to learn more about Samurai swords? Black Belt Magazine published a fun debunking myths article.

Get to Know J.T. Bicket

The sparring and grappling are the best part of martial arts for Sho-Hanshi JT Bicket. After six years of martial arts training in combat, fitness, and technique he now enjoys the satisfaction of seeing others learn and grow. The Carmel Christian School student is also a fan of wakeboarding and spending time outdoors when he’s not competing in online video games or airsoft events. He credits CMAA with helping him develop leadership, self-discipline and determination. His advice? “Keep it up and always have a positive attitude. Along your martial arts journey use the advice of others and difficulty struggles to improve and make you the best that you can be.”
