Martial Arts & Adventure Gear
Rick Tew’s Travel & Training Tour is your ultimate martial arts vacation. We call this the CAN-U tour as you will travel through various parts of California, Arizona, Nevada and Utah. Experience the Martial Science while traveling through the best of the Southwest United States. Visit such locations as Yosemite National Park, The Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, San Francisco, California Coast, Death Valley and more.
The answer, Tew’s Travel and Training Tour or TTT, Adventure America.
4 important factors make TTT the choice for martial artists:
* The outdoors is free to anyone who wishes to use it.
* There is no rent, utilities or expensive wallpaper.
* The natural environment is not limited to a number of square feet or particular
* It offers the best in natural air conditioning.
* With the world as your dojo, you can decide what terrain to train on; grass,
dirt or even snow.
I could go on and on about the advantages of outdoor training, but I want to bring attention to what I feel is the most important aspect of outdoor training. This is the spirit of the warrior. If a student is ever to reach what I call, “points of enlightenment,” he/she will have a much better chance of arriving at these points in the natural environment. Too often we close ourselves off from nature and its benefits. You will find that outdoor classes will be much more enjoyable and memorable. As far as spirit and enlightenment… well that’s for you to discover.
It is your chance to give up the mat, put away the mirrors, take down the bags and trade them in for 14-28 days of mountains, rivers, rocks, trees, animals, waves, snow, sand, wind, sun, rain and an occasional indoor adventure.
One of the great things about traveling in a group is you always have fun, even at the gas station. Almost anywhere we go, (when there is a group), there is fun and adventure. Whether it is chasing each other around with paint guns or dressing up for an on the spot demonstration – fun is the key word.
All in all, there really isn’t enough to say about the tours and training. They are something to be experienced.
Two Week Travel & Training Itinerary
Training: Martial Science basics, stances, rolls and falls, rock hike with optional rappel.
Day one will start off with a morning class on hand to hand, then move on to a rock scrambling hike through the creek with a final rappel on the “Planet of the Apes” wall.
Training: Introduction to climbing, gymnastics and relaxing in the sun.
“Surfs up, dude!”. This day will be spent learing about gear, knots and climbing the face of a rock at Point Dume. Sswimming in the ocean, sand flipping, boogie boarding and maybe even some surfing will also be in order.
Training: This day will be devoted to site seeing and recovery from the first two days.
Sites include downtown, the Gaslamp Quarter, and Balboa Park. There will be an option to head south of the border into Tijuana, Mexico. You decide how to spend your days. Perhaps visit Sea World or the San Diego Zoo.
Training: Hiking, exploring.
At over 1.6km (1 mile) deep and averaging 16km (10 miles) wide, the Grand Canyon is considered one the world’s seven natural wonders.
Training: Swimming, Exploration and More Relaxation.
More time to rest and recover with perhaps a review of previous training and combining what you’ve learned into a freestyle form.
Training: How to keep money in your pocket. Sneaky games in the Casino’s and some secret training missions.
A chance to take a break and hang out by the pool. We will be staying in a hotel where the food is outrageously cheap, the amenities are vast and the gambling is not free. We also climb the tallest indoor climbing wall in America.
Training: Magnificent 7, escrima stick, knife, sword, hiking, wilderness survival and multi-pitch climbing.
We camp out above the Yosemite Valley at Tuolumne Meadows. After another day in the Meadows we take a long hike into the back country and down to the Valley floor. Expect rough camping and lots of awesome views. This will be an adventure you will never forget. Anyone up for bear slapping?
Training: Another break into the night life.
After the adventures in Yosemite, the group will be beat and looking forward to a temporary break in the city.
Training: Open training, exploring, swimming.
Here training will fluctuate between rock jumping sessions and water sports. Camping will be along a river and close to the ocean. Another chance to extend your stay will be offered in the Big Sur area.
Training: Private lesson and group review.
This is your last day of training and your opportunity to make up for anything you may have forgotten. Each student will receive a private lesson while the rest of the group actively reviews the previous lessons.
Training: Running around a theme park, getting a hands on look at how movies are made, or chasing Mickey and acting Goofy.
A relaxing day at the theme park and a great time to ask questions and talk. Waiting in lines may be great way to test your patience too. This is the way we say, life is and should be fun. After some great adventures, some tough challenges and group activities it is time to focus on what is important in life: Being Happy!
*Please note, this is a basic 2 week itinerary for our tour. Changes may occur.
