INDIAN CLUBS CERTIFICATION – Powered by Heroic Sport & RevFit Sweden



The Indian clubs certification covers lots of topics. We’ll work mostly with light Indian clubs, but you will also swing and learn how to handle heavier clubs, and most importantly, how to teach others.
We focus on proper technique and cueing for all exercises. We start with reviewing the basic swings, and go on to play with complex exercises. We also integrate footwork and moving with the clubs, including some less traditional exercises.

You’ll also discover how Indian clubs enhance general sport specific qualities such as rotational power, grip strength,  core stability and multi dimensional movement.

You may attend this course to improve your personal knowledge or become a certified Indian clubs instructor. Please review requirements before signing up!
