Kettlebells really work perfectly for MMA—I can use my energy to work on my conditioning and strength without getting big. And it is safer, so it matches up perfectly.

Anybody who thinks this through this will realize that we train patterns, not parts. Yoga, martial arts, kettlebells, dance, gymnastics and the wide array of natural movements caused by our environment are all brought to being through patterns, not by parts. The parts of the body and the structure of the body submit themselves to the will of the pattern.

Because I work seven days a week, my practice right now is yoga and bodyweight exercises. The more time you can spend in your body the more you cultivate a sense of knowing which brings a sense of empowerment.

I first saw kettlebells back in 1998-99 as an undergraduate. During my Junior and Senior years, I interned with a chiropractic doctor who worked out with them. At the time, I only had very basic ideas about kettlebell swings. In 2005, when I became more involved in the collegiate strength and conditioning field, I started learning a lot more about kettlebells and have continued to learn more over the past 8 years.

Kettlebells, calisthenics and TRX are the best tools for what I'm doing. They support my whole training philosophy which is to keep trying to move better, eat healthy food, and always try to make yourself a little stronger and more flexible. I really have no interest in going back to big gyms again.

I’ve tried many different types of physical training starting off with basketball when I was a kid, then Olympic wrestling, bodybuilding, kettlebells, before coming back to calisthenics...
At the time of the RKC workshop, I wasn't even planning to open a gym. I owned a moving company and had been running it for a while. Afterwards I realized that being a kettlebell instructor was something I wanted to turn into a career.

My instructor—a professional BMX rider—said, "You have to find your right group of kids." When I think about all the personal training and instructor certifications I've completed, I feel like I have found my “right group of kids” whenever I come to a Dragon Door workshop.
