Because time was not an issue, we got to dive deep into everything and learn more than what we could have in the dojo on a normal class period. One of my favorite parts was the time we took to learn how karate is about so much more than the physical. It is a humbling experience that only leads to growth. ~Abby
We spent time 0utside and training in nature. I can't wait for the next time! ~Miron
One of the most incredible experiences of my short life was, hands down, my experience as an
uchi deshi for Sensei Bob Buchanan. If you’re looking to try out karate but also push yourself to new limits, I would absolutely recommend attending Uchi Deshi~David
2023 Uchi Deshi Summer Camps
Uchi-deshi is a Japanese term for a live-in student or apprentice who trains under and assists a sensei on a full-time basis. Sensei Buchanan's goal is that the 2023 Uchi Deshi camps will serve as a catalyst of change in the lives of a chosen few individuals in the DC Metro Area; and continue to elevate the training at Forge Dojo.
The Uchi Deshi Camps will take place at Forge Dojo and on the surrounding property. Camp will run daily from 9:00-4:00 during the weeks of June 26th and August 7th. Participation is open to anyone interested in pursuing serious Kyokushin karate training and desires well-rounded development for themselves or their family; though the Camp is designed with rising 4th- 12th Graders in mind.
Why should YOU join the Uchi Deshi Camp?
