ITA Summer Camp..Was it hard?

ITA Summer Camp..Was it hard?

Detailed report on the ITA Summer Camp by Master Frank Murphy. Master Murphy started his training in 1974 and was promoted to 1st degree black belt by Gen. Choi in 1977. Master Murphy recently re-joined the ITA and the ITF and has been a very active member ever since. Read his bio here.

Summer camps, a regular feature of many Taekwon-Do Associations, vary in intensity and are very popular as students can improve their training over an extended weekend or longer. Having organised a few such camps in a previous lifetime and forever curious to leapfrog my learning, I signed up for the annual Irish Taekwon-Do Association Summer Camp this July in Limerick, which was an extended long weekend from Friday afternoon up until Monday morning. I did so with a mild degree of trepidation because I didn’t know what to expect. Notification of this camp first appeared on the ITA website at the beginning of the year, allowing doubtful fence sitters pondering time before committing.Then around the beginning of February, in a fit of courageous excitement and partial madness, I took the plunge as July seemed a long way off back then. Few opportunities present themselves for older black belts so this July camp was an event that I could train towards and stay focused. That goal was to meet, train and exchange training experiences with other students, summer camp completion and survival, I kid you not.
