Spartan Training Gear is proud to announce that it will be attending the Super Summer Seminars in Herkimer, NY. July 15-17, 2011.
Every year 200-300 instructors and students from all over the U.S. and Canada come together for a weekend of fun, friendship and training. Super Summer is open to any martial artist regardless of style, system or affiliation.
The Super Summer Seminars martial arts camp was established in 1983 by Michael J. Campos, Director of the Zen-Do Kai Martial Arts Association. Having been involved in martial arts since 1959, and having trained long and hard in several different disciplines, Sensei Campos recognized the beneficial effects of martial arts cross-training. His goal was to create a camp for Martial Artists of any style or organization to meet and train so they could all improve by learning from each other. Super Summers has proven to be that vehicle.
In addition to special guest instructors each of the approximately twenty staff instructors offer over forty seminars where the participants learn techniques and training methods as varied as Aikido, Ju-Jitsu, Pencak Silat, Escrima, Jeet Kune Do, Wing Chun, TaeKwonDo, Tai Chi, ZDK system, Shotokan, Goju, Muay Thai, Grappling, Sparring, Boxing, etc.. Additionally seminars are offered on topics like fitness and flexibility, business operations, instructional skills and the psychological and law enforcement aspects of the martial arts.
Super Summer Seminars has long been recognized as one of the best camps available for program, organization, and value. Prof. Wally Jay called it "one of the best camps in the country."
