Are you Ready for the HKC?

Dragon Door are very serious about their role as the leaders in kettlebell training. Their courses and products are the best out there. While this is great for you, the consumer, it can also be daunting for those attending an instructor course.

You see, our standard is very high. Unlike most groups in the fitness industry Dragon Door certifications don’t consist of turning up, being shown a bunch of stuff and then being handed a certificate regardless of whether or not you showed any proficiency during the course. In fact, at most courses there is roughly a 30% fail rate.

Now, for the first time ever Dragon Door are offering their courses here in Australia. Already, in just two weeks, the courses have proven to be very popular and are almost half sold out. I receive numerous emails daily from people all over the country wishing to attend and I give them the same advice – book early because spots are going fast. With only 30 spots total available they will sell out well before the March 20/21 dates.

With the courses only eleven weeks away now is the time to start getting ready for them. While there is a large amount of teaching offered at the HKC, and the course is aimed at beginners, there is also a large chance that if you cannot perform the skills to a high degree you will not pass. Not only that, but the real strength of Dragon Door certifications is the teaching cues and skill breakdown. If your mental space is full of trying to get the technique right then you will likely not have much left over to remember the teaching skills.

If you are thinking of attending the HKC in Melbourne I can advise a few things:

  • If you don’t already own
    Enter the Kettlebell
     you should. It is the Bible of the hardtsyle kettlebell system and is essential reading for anyone serious about their training.
  • Dragon Door Australia currently has numerous kettlebell classes running. For those wishing to attend the HKC the best choices are the Tuesday/ Thursday morning or evening sessions. Morning sessions are at 6am, evenings at 6pm. Located at 555 Victoria Street, Abbotsford they are close to the city. With showers available there should be no problem getting into work after training.
  • The final solution I can offer is to attend our HKC Preparation Class. Starting February 20th it will over three Saturdays. The dates are Feb. 20 and 27th with the final session being on March 13th to ensure that everything is squared away before the HKC the following weekend. Each session will last two hours and cover vital technical aspects that will allow you to concentrate on the teaching elements of the course rather than trying to pick up technique and get tested immediately.

The cost will be $240 for the three session comprising a total of 6 hours of training. Anyone interested can contact me at

For those who haven’t booked yet I urge you to do so quickly. I don’t believe that spots will last even till the end of this month.
