2008 Sambo Summit Training Camp
The 2008 Sambo Summit Training Camp is a three day live in camp with room and board included. This year the camp will be held in Lincoln City, Oregon. It will be held from September 12-14. The rate for this camp is $450 USD.
Last year's camp was a blast and I encourage everyone to come out if they can. But, we have a limit of 40 participants. You need not be experienced to attend camp.
This year the camp coaching staff includes:

Last year this was a really good time. You will find all the coaches and students very down to earth and blue collar. There will not be a bunch of politics or other nonesense, just get down to it sombo. I really encourage everyone interested to attend. If you are coming through Seattle and time it right you can get in a practice or two at my club as well.
TTT for your chance to reserve a spot!
Heh, I actually might be able to go to this. BTW Steve you should make an online application for once. I hate faxes and snail mail.
The one time I would be able to see Sambo it's 450 USD...
You guys are killing me.
450 for room, board, and the camp, seems fair. I know it is a chunk of change, but compared to a lot of other stuff I have seen, it is well within the ballpark.
In addition, you will get to learn all the "not for print" names for techniques we use, come to undestand my subtle wit, generally good disposition, and gander upon my legs.
What more could a fella ask for?
Do you guys ever do sambo seminars in Seattle?
No you're right, I just wish I had the cash is all.

I'd hate to miss out on some sexy legs...

We practice sombo every night. I do a fair amount of seminar teaching and always open to setting something up. If you have any questions feel free to contact me directly, I will PM you my home phone.
Contact Steve directly, My bet is something could be worked out. These seminar are more about giving people direct contact with Sombo and building a community within the United States. As Steve will tell you the whole gig is a labor of love.
I know it is kind of sounding our own horn, but I will say the ASA is the only Sombo association that I have come into contact with who has an agenda of sombo, within the United States. In addition, everyone I have met in conjunction with the organization has been down to earth and all about learning. The organization is one that actually pays attention to its own growth, and makes sure folks have the right mentality to be a benefit.
It has been a privlage to add my efforts to Steve's over the years, I always look forward to hanging with and talking with him. Our approaches are so similar if we were living in the same city there is no question we would be working in the same school. We joked that in truth we may be related, he is smarter, and I better looking.....:icon_chee
Tom Kagan attended last year, ( I hope to see him again this year,) I think his summary of the event was both very kind and accurate.
Please, anyone with any questions feel free to contact Steve or myself directly.
