PostPosted: Tue May 01, 2018 9:10 pm    Post subject: BJJ Camp Reply with quote

I was looking for karate/Jujutsu/judo seminars or something similar to do this summer. I could not find much near where I live. I am trying to keep the expenses down, so I was not looking to travel far.

Either there are not a lot of options, or they are not advertising themselves well. Maybe they think they are Fight Club.

I stumbled onto the Origin BJJ Immersion Camp. It takes place only an hour or so from my house. They have either 4 or 8 day sessions. While I don't currently train BJJ, my one experience was an introductory class at Renzo Gracie's in New York a couple of years ago. I just wanted to try something that I had a hard time finding near me. I enjoyed that, btw.

I looked into Origin and from what I saw, at least their marketing stuff, they seem like a good company.

They are holding the Immersion Camp at Camp Laural on Echo Lake. It is all-inclusive and looks like a blast. It is a bit more than I was looking to spend, but I figured it can be an early graduation present to myself. I graduate in December. I also figured Jesse Enkamp's weekend is relative in cost for a weekend, plus hotel and travel.

So, I have decided to attend. Yay for me!!

Is anyone here planning on going?

Not many really do big camps or anything of that sort. IMO if you dont train BJJ I dont think you'll find this very helpful and it would largely be a waste of money. For $500 you could easily buy yourself an entire season of training with enough left over for a private lesson.

I'm not saying it cant be good or something of that sort, but it depends on why you're doing it. If its to celebrate, have at it. If you're trying to learn something, Id strongly recommend just going to a school.

TJ's has a valid point. That said, if you're wanting to attend a camp then this is a good one. It's headlined by Roy Dean who is just a stellar jiu jitsu player out of the Roy Harris affiliation who is a great guy as well. It will be fun time in a great environment with some quality guys.
