Advanced training is the core of what the CTF has to offer its Black Belts. Grandmaster Hardin has spent over 40 years training martial artists and has trained many fine taekwondo instructors, competitors and kick boxing World Champions. Further, he has developed detailed programs to help instructors over varying experience levels effectively train their students.
Our Black Belt Camps are designed primarily for Instructors. The focus of the camps is on detail of technique, sparring strategies and teaching techniques. In addition, the campers have the opportunity to mix with Black Belts from other areas and backgrounds. This sharing of experience and knowledge further strengthens the skills of the attendees. In our spare time, we typically schedule some outdoor activities in the area to allow everyone to experience the beauty of the area and possibly learn some new skills.
We frequently host “mini-camps” for Black belts who want private instruction or simply cannot make the regularly scheduled camps. These “mini-camps” are designed by the participants to address specifically those areas where they feel they need improvement.
We built the Lodge in the Ozarks with Black belt camps in mind. We can comfortably host between 20 and 25 campers at a time. We have several workout areas available - both inside and out - as well as a host of outdoor activities to entertain just about anyone!
Grandmaster Hardin also travels extensively during the year, visiting the various CTF schools and working with the instructors. He is always willing to schedule seminars and training sessions with you when he is in the area. You may schedule a visit by contacting the CTF office.
