Summer Judo Training Camp with Brad Bolen @ Charleston, South Carolina

This is a great opportunity for juniors to train with other judoka outside their own school in preparation for the US Open later in July.

 

It is also a great chance for parents to get some much needed vacation time while their kids are training during the day. The cost is $250 for the week.
