Sunshine, tapas & altitude !! Come freefly with Jasper & Martijn from ToraTora.nl.
In 2011, ToraTora will be traveling to Seville - in the south of Spain - from October 23 to October 29. Seville is a warm and sunny place, where they fly their ultra fast Dorniers up to 15.000 ft! The pool offers refreshment in the afternoon, right before we go out to eat some tapas (the Spanish are well known for their food).
The goal of the camp is to fly together in small groups of similar level (maximum 2 groups of 6 participants). These groups will have each their own coach (Martijn and Jasper) and will be intensively guided in the air and on the ground. Our ambition is for all flyers to be able to work on their personal goals and to push their own limits, while working on team-flying skills at the same time.

sorry johnrich, it is not a event, it's our team name already for more than 6 years.. nothing to do with pearl harbor, etc.. have a look at our website www.toratora.nl, there we explain things a bit ;-)
Why are you using the Japanese code words used to indicate a successful attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941, to promote a skydiving event held in Spain?
wasn't that Tora Tora Tora ?
Their team is named after a Memphis (TN) hard rock band : Click here for reference otherwise you got the explanation "from the horses mouth" just above
Thank you for that explanation. I looked at their web site, but there wasn't any explanation readily available that I could find. But those anime cartoon chicks are really hot.
"Tora" means "Tiger" in Japanese, and made a good code word for Pearl Harbor because "To" means "attack", and "ra" means torpedo", or something like that. (I spent 13 months in Japan once.) So the combination of syllables fit the mode of the attack.
The repetition is irrelevant to the meaning, whether there is one, two or three. I suppose it was said three times just out of excitement, and to make sure that the message was received.
