Construction began on the Lodge in March of 1999 and was completed in the fall of 2000. This project has certainly been a concrete example of the Choong Sil Philosophy in action and the realization of this goal is a beautiful facility which gives all members of the CTF a permanent home for their camps and retreats.
Designed not only as the CTF National Headquarters but also as a camp facility, the lodge can host as many as 20 to 30 campers in comfort. Located in the remote, breath taking Ozark Mountains of Northwestern Arkansas, the area offers activities for its guests which include hiking, swimming, fishing, hunting, canoeing, rappelling, trail riding on the ATVs or mules and paint ball games. Your training has never been so convenient with a complete gym downstairs including Nautilus equipment.
Each summer the Hardins host separate camps for Men and Women Black Belts as well as other special camps during the year such as our Fall Couple’s Camp and Bo Staff Seminar in past years. These camps offer instructors and black belts an opportunity for personalized instruction from Master Hardin as well as the chance to enjoy new experiences.
In addition the Hardins welcome visitors between camps and other CTF events. Many CTF members have taken advantage of the opportunity for private instruction, a little outdoor recreation, relaxation and some good home cooking.
