There are currently six levels of certified kettlebell instructor:

The Master RKC

Master RKCs are appointed after extensive experience as a Senior RKC and after demonstrating the highest levels of integrity, commitment, teaching skills, leadership and personal physical ability. Master RKCs are the only RKCs with the authority to teach Dragon Door approved RKC certification workshops on their own. Dragon Door now offers in-house RKC certifications for appropriate organizations. Write to John Du Cane at jducane@dragondoor.com for more information. See a list of all Master RKCs

The Senior RKC

This is the next highest level of instructor and is by invitation only. The Senior RKC has displayed a combination of superior teaching skills, leadership and physical abilities with the kettlebell. The Senior RKCs are responsible for teaching and testing at Dragon Door and Pavel's renowned Russian Kettlebell Challenge Instructor certification workshops.

We strongly recommend you seek out one of these elite instructors for a workshop or private instruction, if at all possible. See a list of all Senior RKCs

The RKC Team Leader

The position of RKC Team Leader is also by invitation only. The RKC Team Leader has displayed consistently strong teaching skills over a number of years and demonstrates a very high level of physical skill in their kettlebell practice. RKC Team Leaders teach on a limited basis at the RKC instructor certifications. See a list of all RKC Team Leaders
