Winter Camps: Multi-Sports & Movie Action Winter Camps With Flips & Kicks Plus

Have you ever been watching a movie with your kids, got to the big action scene, and had them ask, “How do they do that? I want to do that!” I know that for weeks after watching The Karate Kid, my kids were insistent that they knew all the moves just from watching the movie.

Luckily, at the time, they were also participating in a great summer camp lead by Flips & Kicks Plus, who taught them the basics of karate in fun and safely engaging ways. So they did know a little and learned how to respect that art form and the perseverance it takes to become a master.

If your kids want to learn how to do all the cool movie stunts, and you don’t mind them traveling with their class a little way, then Flips & Kicks Plus have the winter camps for you! They have their special movie training camps and also an extension of their multi-sports camps running in two blocks: Dec 21-25 and then again Dec 28-Jan 1. Coach Fredrik Yderstrom was kind enough to answer questions so you can find out if this camp is right for your family.

Jackie Chan’s stunt team uses the same equipment that your kids will

BJK: How does this special training center enhance the winter camp experience?

FY: It’s a professional training center with all the professional equipment needed for martial arts, movies, and stunts… [so you can feel confident in the]safety of the participants.

And, on a side note, the location of the center is beautiful, surrounded by mountains and nature. Also, the center itself is an experience, with 37,000 square meters of film and training facilities.

BJK: What can parents expect their kids to learn from this one week camp?

FY: We teach gymnastics as a base because it gives great core training, coordination, and flexibility.

In movies, it’s important to be able to adapt and each sport and martial arts has its own specialty and flavor. We want the participants to be able to learn, see, and feel the differences between the different martial arts.

For stunts, falling techniques are very important both off and onscreen. That will be the base, then safety and etiquette when filming. From that, we move over to body reactions, basic wirework, and also basic gun control [Editor’s note: not using real guns]. They will also learn how a green screen works.

Most classes are in age groups so it’s easier to personalize the training for a better progression curve. They also get to meet the Jackie Chan stunt team, and that in itself is quite a cool experience.

BJK: What qualities do your camps teach beyond the physical training in different sports?

FY: The camp offers unique insights into the movie industry. Not everything on the screen is red carpet and glamour. There is a lot of extremely hard work and early mornings behind a movie project. The participants might reflect on that a bit more next time they see a movie.

The campers will also see how you create some of the special effects in movies and that the monsters are not real; they are made using props or a green screen. Moreover, one of the best and most important parts of a movie project is team building and friendship. We know the campers will get to feel and experience that.

Flips & Kicks Plus ensures quality when it comes to camps with our long track record. So we know the kids and young adults will have an amazing experience.
