INDIAN CLUBS WORKSHOPS
Swinging clubs for strength has a history dating back more than 2500 years, and has its roots in ancient India and Persia.
Indian clubs are a perfect discipline for any athlete that lift weights overhead but also for people who spend time in front of a computer.
Here’s what weightlifting legend Tommy Kono has to say about Indian clubs in his book “Championship Weightlifting”:
“Although the weight of the Indian Clubs may be only a pound or two, it isn’t so much the weight, but smoothness of the swing and the rhythm that increases the mobility of the shoulders, elbows and wrists. A few minutes spent in working with the Indian Clubs will more than pay off in great dividends as a recovery exercise. I bring your attention to this type of training because I have benefited from them and feel there is a need to promote flexibility in the shoulders without taxing them.”
On a workshop, you will learn the basics of Indian club swinging in a simple and systematized approach.
You will discover and experience the invaluable benefits such as: better range of motion and stability from shoulder to wrist, improved back, shoulder and forearm strength, and improved coordination. One key aspect of practice with Indian clubs is the positive effect on the nervous system which helps restitution.
The club swinging exercises will be presented in a safe and effective manner so that they can be practiced at home after attending the workshop.
Due to the complex nature of this discipline, Indian club workshops are limited to a half day, and organized in different levels of complexity.
TESTIMONIALS FOR WORKSHOPS
Thierrys undervisning var tilpas intens til, at man både fik sved på panden, men aldrig blev så stakåndet og træt, at man ikke kunne koncentrere sig om teknikken og de mange fif Thierry gav undervejs – der dels sigtede mod, at gøre os bedre til selv at træne med KB samt i lige så høj grad, at blive dygtigere til at spotte og instruere vores medlemmer i KB-træning. De varmeste anbefalinger herfra og vi vender 100% tilbage for level 2 sidenhen.”[/cs_testimonial][cs_testimonial author=”Pierre Maegaard Knudsen” slogan=”Denmark” avatar=”https://thierrysanchez.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/Pierre-Maegaard.jpg”]”I give Thierry Sanchez and his Kettlebell Instructor courses and workshops my highest recommendations. They have the perfect blend of theory and practice. His kettlebell sport workshop is perfect for both the beginner and the advanced GS athlete. Thierry is in my opinion the best kettlebell teacher in Denmark right now.
