Q-101 at Ambush

The growth of Ambush has been strong and fast. With so many new leaders stepping up, YHC knew it was time for Q-101. Even the most seasoned QICs could use a refresher course every so often.

Believing standards are important and all details matter, Q-101 is a great way to learn the fine details of the art of Qing while also squeezing in a pretty good beatdown. Hopefully the 18 faithful in attendance learned something in the process of getting smoked.

Conditions: 54 degrees, clear
