Boot Camp - An Inside Look

Despite the martial attire, lots of laughter was reported.
During the debrief, the daughter told of the final challenge. She arrived at the dojo at 5:00 pm, took part in a demonstration that involved plenty of calisthenics and fighting with sticks, and then said farewell to the parents.

The recruits then ran to a swimming pool, changed into non-military-issue swimwear, and played in the pool. No enemy combatants were located on the water slide.

They then did some night marching to a parents' backyard for roasting of combat marshmallows, before returning to the dojo around 1:00 am for a bit of shut eye.

The daughter recruit said it was just about the best time ever.

I made a video of the demonstration.
