Yes, thanks again Steve and Aaron. Not sure if I'll be able to make this one but I will eventually get to a seminar.
First Aid is a very practical subject for a combat sport instructor. I've seen at least one Judo club require Red Cross First Aid/CPR certification in order to make Shodan - and it certainly looks good as a credential as well.

Whew.. I really want to come to this. Looks like it will be 11 hour drive for me. Are there any others scheduled for this year?
I'm looking into money issues right now. Would love to come if I can get it worked out!!

No more schedule for the year.
Aaron are looking into having the first aid course officially certified. In any event, when our new association insurance kicks in, it will be required of all our pro member club instructors. So, we are starting it now.

Yeah, that would be cool. If I get to go, then I would definitely be down for car pooling. He would have to come through P'cola any way. He will have about an 8 hour drive just to get here, I think.

Great news folks!
Our first aid course will be accredited by the American Heart Association. So, all participants who complete the camp will receive AHA first aid certifications!

Fantastic, Steve. I love how much effort y'all (The ASA) are putting in to this camp being more than just "here are some techniques". I appreciate it.

We really want to build a credible training based organization...the ASA has been around for just over 6 years and we continue to grow and challenge ourselves to stay progressive, practical, ethical, and still offer something to those interested...instead of BS rank certificates that don't mean anything ;)

Is there a way to do a partial registeration for the weekend only? Not sure if I can get Friday off. It's only one day though so probably.
For those of those you having issues afford the hotel costs. I'm going to talk to my wife and see if we can house two bullies for the summit for those not able to afford the cost of the hotel since we actually live in Austin which is about 15 mins from the summit. We are pretty simple people though so don't expect a college experience staying with us lol.
I'm a noob though. In October I'll only have about 6 months of BJJ experience.

Noobs are welcome! Right now we are not accepting partial registrations. if towards the deadline, we have some spaces available we may open it up to single or double day registation, but the camp progresses with each day and partial attendence is not preferred.
But, if you can host folks, that would be fantastic on helping people with cost.
Thanks for the offer!
