Review : Kaveri : "I ate much more food than I eat at home!"8 Years Old

Student

Jai Hind. This was my first ‘BadAzz Krav Maga Self Defense Dandeli Boot Camp’ with Guru-ji Franklin. I went there with my parents. I met a lot of nice people during the trip and had great fun. I liked the river Kali the most. I made friends with Krystal (our Guru-ji Franklin Joseph’s daughter) in the water. We went on a kayak. Then I got into the water and lay down on my back. We did some training in the water. Then we put our head in the water to see who could hold their breath the longest. I loved the food in Milind uncle’s homestay. The beans sabji was yummy. I ate much more food than I eat at home. We did some training in the backwaters of Dandeli forest. I learnt that BadAzz Krav maga training could be good fun. Everybody in the ‘BadAzz Krav Maga Self Defense Dandeli Boot Camp’ helped each other. On Sunday night, we danced nicely in sir’s house. I was very sad to leave my new friends who were from the other centers. I hope Guru-ji Franklin Joseph organizes more ‘BadAzz Krav Maga Self Defense Dandeli Boot Camp’ so that I can see my friends again. Guru-ji Franklin Joseph, thank you for organizing this boot camp. It was one of my greatest trips.

Jai Hind. In ‘BadAzz Krav Maga Self Defense Dandeli Boot Camp’, unlike the other participants on this trip, my wife and I went not as students but as parents accompanying our 8 year old daughter Kaveri. But that is not to say our learning from the trip was not significant. In fact, watching Guru-ji Franklin Joseph at close quarters, teaching his students was a great learning experience for me. The long hours that Guru-ji Franklin Joseph had put into planning and organizing the trip was evident right from the beginning of the trip. The train and mini van trips, the homestay, the activities in the river and most importantly, the multiple training sessions were all planned and executed with the precision of a military operation. It was evident that Guru-ji Franklin Joseph puts his heart and soul in his classes and his students have for him great respect and awe. He shares his knowledge openly and without reservation – be it his self defence techniques or the life lessons from his own experiences. It was also a joy to get to know his family members, his wife Sharon and daughter Krystal – who like him are most welcoming and generous. Many of the students we interacted with felt that they had learnt a least one significant life skill during the boot camp that had stretched them beyond what they thought was possible. In the process of accompanying our daughter to this trip, we made acquaintances with a wonderful set of people. We are fortunate to have found Guru-ji Franklin Joseph and his BadAzz Krav-Maga Self Defense class.
