Total training – 17 and a half hours.

Very cheap training costs at £3 per hour or £50 for the full weekend. These  costs include one special guest instructor.

Food/drink costs £10 per day. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided, along with some beer, wine and cider for the evenings.

Accommodation is dojo floor stay and is free.

The total cost including food and training is £80.

You couldn’t get this standard of instruction, this much food or this much fun this cheap anywhere else. Attendance is a rite of passage, and the stories afterwards are the stuff of legend.

There will be a visit to the local pub in the evenings and then card games and general frivolity at the post pub after party.
Weather dependent there may well be at least one barbecue and possibly several.

This year we’ve managed to secure the Sway Village Hall as our day time training venue, which is much bigger than our usual training hall in Sway.

We will be using the Sway Youth Centre as the dormitory and will be retiring there for the evening festivities and frivolity.

Dojo stay and self catering – adults only (over 18 – there’ll be alcohol involved in the evenings – sorry kids.)

16 yrs plus are allowed, but only with parent’s written consent and by prior arrangement.

This event is very special to us and is heavily subsidised by club funds. It’s a special event which as a pure style seminar also acts as a huge competency boost for all that attend. Everyone will receive special complimentary lumps, bumps and bruises, as well as random aches and pains and an inability to move at all without groaning or sighing and shaking of the head.

You’d have to be mad to miss this one.

Dojo floor stay at Sway Youth Centre is available for all – bring your own sleeping bag/camp bed/roll mat and pillow (ear plugs may also help.)
Separate male and female dormitories are arranged.
Outside hot water shower facilities are quite literally homemade – bring a dressing gown and a sense of humour.

Full or partial attendance options – ALL kenshi/friends/WAMA members are welcome.
