    Anybody here travelling to Datu Kelly Worden's Water and Steel camp in August/September? I'm in the process of designing this year's camp shirt artwork. So far it's looking pretty badass. Wortac folder with crossed bastons and a horimono tattoo style snake in water with the end of one baston in it's mouth. Pretty trendy considering how big tattoos are right now...

    in any case,

    Apparently he is removing the Renegade Jeet Kune Do from the Natural Spirit curriculum. I'm not sure if he will be renaming the empty hand stuff, if he' keeping it or just going back to NSI Kuntao and Wortac stuff or what, but he says the RJKD is out. Too many political complications...

    Just wondering who else I might meet or train with!

    what is the difference between NSI Kuntao, wortac, or RJKD ?

    or key differences ?

    hope my enquiries not cause offense (unlike in others)

    just curious to know as hear alot abt Datu.

    Just in case others were interested on how the camp turned out, I found some personal reviews on Datu Wordens site at www.kellyworden.com

    I sure miss the camps....

    Wednesday, 9/5/07, 10:00 PM Water and Steel 2007 Wow!! do you want to talk about value! Where in the world can you go and see a teacher of Datu Kelly Wardens stature (not to mention humour), relevant, practical and conjoined content, kind and helpful senior practitioners, the nicest people on the planet, some of the best comedians (not Canadians, even though that coud be true) fantastic food and plenty of it, this list goes on and on. This is a keeper for me, so thank you everyone who participated and made this an awesome life changing experience, see you next year. Clark From:Edmonton

    Wednesday, 9/5/07, 6:25 PM Just wanted to drop in and say hi to everyone. The camp was great, the food and training was amazing. So may diverse individuals from all over North America. So much talent in one small area, it's scary. We had beginners as well as intermediate and advanced individuals to train with. All you had to do was look over your shoulder if you needed a hand figuring out a concept, and there was someone there. For me it was a great reminder of the diversity of NSI, and Kelly Worden┬┐s commitment, not to keep us down but give us the keys to developing wisdom with in the arts. Also I would just like to send a shout out to the Doctor Ho power hour people.........you know who you are....:) Take care guys and gals, see you soon.

    Yeah, the camp shirts are sweet. Pitboss did a fine job designing them. Very nice work.

    And ... actually ... I took this photo :)

    I'm not in too many pics, as I'm usually the guy running the camera.

    Good news. I just completed the 4 disk camp set. I've sent it off to Datu for approval. He'll no doubt have it up on his site very soon for sale.

    Here's a clip that I put together from the set. http://youtube.com/watch?v=Z1RcgrDQNTo

    What a great time camp was.

    Look for more on line content, and of course the complete set.

    2) Non Classical Gung Fu
    3) Locks and Controls (Jeff Johnsgaard & Troy Ostapiw)
    4) Silent Fighter
    5) Anyo
    6) Stick Anyo (Ken Smith)
    7) Staff
