Don’t Miss West Coast Training Camp 2018!
Join us at ENCINAL High School in Alameda, CA, on Friday, September 28th from 6 to 8 p.m., and all day Saturday September 29th (9 to 5), for some exciting training and action at our annual West Coast Training Camp! The Saturday event 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
Master Jessica Ngo, from Jacksonville, FL;
Sensei Tony Kay ; from Seattle, WA
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.
We’re still working on the class schedule – but we promise it’s going to be fun!
Watch this space for schedule updates.
Register early; register online.

New hotel: This year our Official WCTC hotel is the Oakland Airport Executive Hotel, 150 Hegenberger Road, just moments from the Oakland Airport and about 15 minutes from the WCTC gym. It has a restaurant and bar in-house, with breakfast included in the room rate. We’ll also have a more spacious room for our Saturday dinner-party and social gathering. In addition, there are restaurants nearby, a pool and exercise room, and a free Oakland airport shuttle.
To get our special rates, please call our contact, Amanda, directly at (510) 969-3119. Mention you are with the West Coast Training Camp. Our WCTC room rates are $139 + tax for a double room, and $129 + tax for a King room (which includes a pull-out couch), for rooms in the “Tower” (main building) of the hotel. If the Tower runs out of space at our special rate, “Courtyard” rooms in the hotel’s auxiliary buildings will be available at the $129 rate. All rooms have a small refrigerator and microwave. As mentioned, the hotel has a free airport shuttle (Oakland airport only) and a cozy restaurant 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 and we’ll match you with someone.
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 is a short cab/uber/lyft ride from the Coliseum BART station).
