In the most recent issue of USA Karate Magazine, my kettlebell mentor Zar Horton and I write about why kettlebells are the most economical, efficient, and effective tool for people training across the broad range of martial arts from MMA to judo to jeet kune do, karate, taekwondo, krav maga, as well as boxing and wrestling.

Kettlebell training is also an ideal modality for dojo/gym students who have a greater interest in full body strength and conditioning for overall better health. They take up little space and cost a fraction of Olympic lifting equipment.

I am available to do full-day and half-day training for dojo leaders on how best to introduce kettlebells into your training environment. I am a First Kyu in traditional Shotokan karate, and a StrongFirst-certified SFG, Level 1 Kettlebell Instructor. My first Kyu rank is from the Shuhari Institute, earned before a testing panel led by Sensei Toru Shimogi. I also have a deep, evidence-based grasp of biomechanics and physiology, which will come across as we work and train together. IMG_20170815_150418

Kettlebell seminars are conducted on Saturdays, at your location, for 4 or 8 hours. Contact me for details.

If you are a martial artist of any kind, and you just want to improve at your sport, I’ll help you understand how and why to use kettlebells to do just that. Martial artists get a 10% discount from my usual rates.
