During the summer months, one of the biggest things
we notice is that children especially are unfulfilled and
restless because their regular routine has changed and
they no longer have the normalcy they are accustomed
to during the school year. Consequently, parents can
experience behavior problems because their children
are having difficulty coping with the change in their
routine. Structure is good for children and in fact, they
crave it. Sidekicks’ summer camp programs provide a
routine and structure that is also fun AND educational,
making the most of their summer and letting them get
the most out of their summer.
For students that wish to participate in our all-summer
camp program (in lieu of daycare) the camp themes
will be announced shortly (or we can e-mail them to
you, just send an e-mail to Mr. Cabrera or Master
Cabrera). However, today, we just wanted to highlight
a few that might interest students in our Basic, Black
Belt Club, and Elite/Leadership programs:
High Intensity Camp (June 16 – 20; July 14 – 18):
These camps, formerly called Intensive Training
Camps feature our entire exciting martial arts curriculum
in the course of 5 action packed days. New this
year will be one day of joint martial arts training between
both schools and a Friday morning workout at
the park (plus a little play-time). This camp promises
to be more action packed than ever. Plus, with testing
on July 19th, students will be better prepared than ever.
Extreme Sparring Camp (June 30 – July 3rd): Learn
super sparring strategies that will help your selfdefense
skills as well as strategies to win tournaments.
New this year will be a Sparring Camp tournament on
the last day of camp between both schools to put all of
those new skills and drills into practice.
Grappling Camp (July 28 – August 1): Last year, this
camp was the most popular camp of the summer and
students raved about it for months. This year, we’ve
expanded the camp to a full 5 days as well as going to
introduce new techniques and strategies learned from
some of the top fighters in Mixed Martial Arts.
Martial Arts Acrobatics Camp (August 11-13): Have
you ever wanted to learn how to do all of those jumping
techniques like in the movies or of TV. Well, this
camp is for you! We’ll be focusing on learning the basics
of these “kicknastic” like movements. Now previous
tumbling experience required!
Extreme Taekwon-Do Overnight Camp w/Grandmaster
Hardin in Apopka, FL (August 29, 30, 31): This camp
is one that is a MUST for the serious Taekwon-Do student
and represents a once in a lifetime opportunity to
train with a legend in the martial arts: Grandmaster
Robert Hardin, founder of the CTF and creator of the
Discipline forms that the Black Belt Recommended
The enrollment sheet is now available online for the
camps at our website: www.sidekicks-online.com/
newletter.html. You can find it in the newsletter section.
All the camps, except for the overnight camp cost
$125 per person to participate. The overnight camp
with Grandmaster Hardin will be $200 (which includes
everything). We understand that to participate in everything
this summer can be pretty expensive, especially
with high gasoline prices. That is why SIDEKICKS is
willing to break-up payments for camps this summer.
Just come in and discuss with Mr. Cabrera to work out
a payment plan. A 10% discount will be given to students
that sign up for all 6 camps and pay-in-full.
