Please avail yourself of Steve's knowledge, experience, goodwill and generosity during your camp

If you would like help with planning your trip, contact email Maxwell service desk.
Participating in this this camp is perfectly safe -- in fact, safer than your regular life.
Both are offered but for acquiring best technique, Steve emphasizes gi training over no-gi.
Yes, of course, but each student present on the mat must be registered and paid for the entire camp.
Booking fees are non-refundable although credit for future events and digital products is offered equal to fees paid.
These will take place variously indoors and possibly outdoors at Steve's discretion.
There is one caveat: anything can happen... so watch this space.
Thanks again for all your help. No way I would have made weight or been in condition for this tournament without all your help. Thanks a lot :-)
