After Christmas relax & practice

8th Christmas camp for red & black belts
Ondřej Vrábel, 24.1.2018 – It has been eighth time that highest belts visited mini course after Christmas. This time it was for black belts only. From 27th to 29th of December we spent great time together in Malé Svatoňovice and vicinity. On the first day we made a trip to Janské Lázně where we walked a pathway among treetops. This construction is really imposing and the only bad thing was the fog which was pretty dense. There is perfectly made underground part of observation tower where the visitors can learn a lot of interesting information about soil and the life in it. Even the smallest visitors would appreciate the way the information is put in.

When we returned we have a training of basic techniques of 3rd Dan patterns. We practised them in pairs and to targets. This kind of practising brought us lots of interesting experience for fight and patterns as well. In the evening we just sat at the table and ate everything that was on it and we talked about the life of Taekwondists.

Another day greeted us with freezing weather and heavy rain which were, step by step, mixed with snow and finally with pure snow. Morning training was aimed to movements and psychological aspects for self-defence. Two hours of training were quite exhausting for everyone. After lunch we set off for a new trip. This time we moved quickly via snowy countryside to small village Babí which is near Trutnov. There is unfinished underground fortress Stachelberg. The visit was truly spectacular and we pay great compliment to our ancestors for what they accomplished in one year is truly unbelievable. Excellent working strategy and especially ingenuity of future fortress for defence of Czechoslovakia is really breathtaking compared to contemporary technology and facilities. Our expedition was 60 meters below the earth surface and had the opportunity to observe halls and tunnels that could not be finished because of Munich Pact. The only negative aspect was that it was impossible to observe the lowest part of underground barracks for they were flooded.

If you like history especially military history, then visit the fortress – it´s worth it for sure. In the name of Sonkal I thank group of fanciers who take care of that fortress in their free time – approach, maintenance, operation and visiting hours. More on www.stachelberg.cz.

Outside we walked through trenches that were temporarily built for the defence of land while the construction was in process. We simulated little trench war – using balls made of snow .

After cold observation we moved to Polish town Kudowa Zdrój (right behind the border), and we relaxed in Aqua park having on helter-skelter, in whirlpool-bath and sauna .

On last day the weather was much more pleasant than the day before. Morning training more suitable for trainers but at this Christmas course were more than enough of them. We used long standing experience of Pavel Zavadil in fitness and the training was focused on various strengthening exercises using one´s own body. During whole time we were talking about the exercises and adding practical experience.

Quick lunch, quicker cleaning up and heading to Police nad Metují where we made a walk to rock structure Ostaš. There is a small labyrinth among rocks at the top and beautiful vista. Then we moved to Trutnov for our grandiose final in local Café. There some of us could not resist delicious hot chocolate and others got warmed up by one or two kinds of infinite number of coffees.

Everything good ends once and so our eighth Christmas course became a part of history and we left for Prague. In one year we are going again and this time with magical number 9.
