Don’t Miss West Coast Training Camp 2018!
URGENT UPDATE: WE HAVE CHANGED VENUE! The 2018 WCTC will be at Encinal High School Gym, 210 Central Avenue, Alameda, CA. This is at the opposite end of Central Avenue from our usual venue, Alameda High School. Please allow some extra travel time from the Oakland airport area. (On the plus side, if you’re coming from Berkeley, it is a little closer.)
Join us at ENCINAL High School on Friday, September 28th from 6 to 8 p.m., and all day Saturday September 29th (9 to 5). Registration includes an on-site catered lunch and afternoon cookie break.
This is an special opportunity to train with many of the top instructors in Cuong Nhu:
Grandmaster Quynh Ngo, Head of Style, from Jacksonville, FL;
Master John Kay, from Renton, WA;
Master Mike Ponzio, from Morristown, TN;
Master Joe Varady, ; from Phoenixville, PA
Sensei Tony Kay ; from Seattle, WA
Sensei Jessica Ngo, from Jacksonville, FL;
We’re looking forward to seeing our out-of-town friends, and hope all our local students will be able to participate, too. You can register online right here.
Parents: This is a great event for kids.
If you’re wondering whether your kids can last through a 9 to 5 day of training… they can! Our instructors are highly skilled and experienced at working with children. The schedule includes appropriate activities, break time, and skillful supervision. You can drop your kids off at the gym and leave with confidence – or you are welcome to stay and watch for all or part of the day!
We especially love to have children take part, because many local kids will be unable to attend Cuong Nhu’s national training camp, IATC in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. WCTC is your chance to train with the head of Cuong Nhu and some of our top instructors, without having to fly across the country.
Here’s the schedule of classes. It’s going to be fun!
Register early; register online.

New hotel: This year our Official WCTC hotel has a variety of features including a spacious lobby great for socializing, a bistro and bar, restaurants nearby and a nice pool and outdoor courtyard – the Oakland Airport Executive Hotel, 150 Hegenberger Road, Oakland, CA. Please call our contact, Amanda, directly to get our discounted rate at (510) 969-3119. Our WCTC room rates are $139 + tax for a Double room and $129 + tax for a King room in the so called “tower” which is the main building. (If Courtyard rooms are booked, both types of rooms will be $129 The Courtyard rooms are behind the main building, by the pool). The King rooms have a couch that is supposed to pull out for sleeping. The rooms includes breakfast and have a small refrigerator and microwave. The hotel has a free airport shuttle (Oakland airport only) and a Bistro where you can enjoy your free breakfast. If you’d like instead to be hosted at the home of a local Cuong Nhu student, let us know.
Book your room soon. The number of rooms set aside for us is limited!
Travel tips: Your first choice is to fly to Oakland International Airport. However, San Francisco airport is 30 to 45 minutes away (no free shuttle, but it’s a short cab/uber/lyft ride from the Coliseum BART station).
