Through an intense mental and physical training, Craig Caudill will be able to help young men push "beyond their self-imposed limits" and learn self-discipline.
"They will learn to knock the barriers down between each other," Caudill said.
Caudill, chief instructor at Bluegrass Budokai, 26 N. Main St., will teach the Martial Arts Weeklong Intensive. The camp, in its third year, is designed to teach participants about outdoor survival, community involvement and self-discipline. Caudill said the training will help the students overcome mental and physical barriers.
"I want them to learn that they do have self-imposed limits and they can knock those walls down that limit them," he said.
This year, Caudill has seen an increase in participants in the camp, jumping from six to about 15 interested men. Students have registered from all over Kentucky, including Nicholasville, Richmond, Lexington and Versailles. Some people have even come from as far as Tulsa, Okla. But, due to the growing number of students and the economy, there was a shortage of funds.
