Mountain Quest 2017
Fri, Aug 11, 2017, 1:00 PM – Sun, Aug 13, 2017, 4:00 PM EDT
The seminar will begin Friday morning with an all day Yamabushi Mountain Warrior experience. This year we will focus on deepening our connection with nature in a hiking and meditation experience you will not want to miss. After the Yamabushi Meditation, training will begin with a Friday evening training session. Saturday will be a full day of training followed by evening black belt demonstrations and evaluations. Sunday will conclude with a powerful immersion in the Dragon's Mouth, the fear banishing waterfall hidden on the edge of the mountain. Breakout sessions to look forward to this year include Tameshigiri sword cutting and glow shuriken tournament.
IMPORTANT: The Yamabushi training will be an intensive hiking and meditative experience. This experience is limited to participants ages 15+ and Youth Black Belts.
NOTE: For participants in the Yamabushi experience, you are welcome to arrive Thursday evening to set up camp OR Friday morning. For Weekend Training ONLY registrants, please arrive AFTER 4pm on Friday to set up camp, the gates will not reopen until 4pm on Friday. The location of our camp and training ground is private property about 20 minutes outside of Blowing Rock. Registrants will receive an email with detailed directions to the property the week before the seminar.
Join us for this amazing tradition and the most authentic training experience outside of Japan! We gather on a training ground on the same latitudinal line as the original Ninja training grounds of Mount Togakure in Japan, it’s the closest to the lineage of ninja you can get without flying overseas. Experience true ninja training on real mountain terrain. Spend the evenings with good friends, old and new, around the campfire and sleep under the stars.
IMPORTANT: Tshirts are NOT included in the ticket price. They may be purchased as an add-on at the bottom of the registration. There will be a VERY limited number of tshirts available for purchase on the mountain so it is HIGHLY recommended you pre-order your shirt.
IMPORTANT: All registrations include catered dinner Saturday night. If you have family or friends in attendance who will not be participating in training but would like to take part in the dinner, please purchase dinner for them in the catering add on at the bottom of your registration.
If after registering, you find that you cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible. Because we will be placing catering and other orders based on registration, we cannot offer a full refund. If you need to cancel your registration a month or more before Mountain Quest, we will refund all but $50, and that deposit will help cover our costs and any remainder will go to the Chapel Hill Quest Martial Arts Scholarship Fund. You may also transfer your registration to another friend or family member by letting us know. Alternatively, you can let us know at any point before the event that you cannot attend but would like for your registration to be used by one of our Scholarship students! In the event that Mountain Quest must be cancelled and not rescheduled, of course full refunds will be made.
