Best place to learn martial arts in the world

Long story short: Martial arts camp is the best place to learn martial arts in the world.

How would I describe martial arts camps shortly:

A martial arts camp is a skill, mind, and body transformation camp for practitioners. And even a more brief description: It’s a retreat place for combat athletes.

In addition, martial arts camps are a great way to socialize children in a sports environment.

Are there children’s martial arts summer camps at all?

Yes. And a lot.
