As an incentive to help athletes and coaches to build on and evolve their skill-sets, SCC certified graduates may deduct $250.00 of their SCC tuition fee from a registration for a future PCC certification workshop, within one year of achieving the SCC.

In 2013, Dragon Door established the PCC—the world’s first certification based on progressive bodyweight theory, designed by iconic author Paul "Coach" Wade (Convict Conditioning) and the world’s most widely-respected calisthenics instructor, Al Kavadlo (Raising the Bar, contributor to Train magazine, Bodybuilding.com, T-Nation, etc).
Taught by Al and Danny Kavadlo, the Progressive Calisthenics Certification (PCC) was rapidly hailed as the most advanced and powerful bodyweight workshop on the planet. Participants were leaving the course having smashed personal bests, many achieving elite bodyweight feats they never imagined they could approach, such as the muscle-up, the one-arm pull-up, and the human flag!
The PCC is an amazing experience: but it’s not an easy ride. It comprises eleven training modules and two packed seminars held over three full days. The work volume and the information load are massive, transformative. And the final certification test—The Century—taken after three days of hard training, ensures that only the exceptionally-strong will pass.
It should be obvious that not everyone will be ready to take on the PCC. Many trainees are just not yet physically prepared for the PCC’s advanced bodyweight work; some professional people just can’t commit, financially or time-wise, to the three full days the course requires; others are interested in taking on the PCC at some point, but want to feel their way first. If you are one of these people—great news…
After over a year of development, we can finally unveil the Strength Calisthenics Certification (SCC)—your chance to join forces with the ultimate bodyweight training system!
The SCC is a ground-breaking one-day, entry-level bodyweight training certification. Although an adequate level of strength and conditioning is required to get the most out of the course, the testing is far less severe than for the PCC. In the SCC, the huge PCC curriculum is field-stripped to a core of essential bodyweight techniques, including:
PUSH-UPS: The premier bodyweight movement! But how many athletes cheat themselves of massive achievements in this famous exercise, because of poor technical cues or inadequate progressions? We will teach you:
PULL-UPS: All the advanced movements of bar calisthenics begin with this basic cornerstone—all of them. The ability to easily pull your bodyweight through space is what really divides a calisthenics athlete from the wannabes. In the workshop, we’ll share our cutting-edge tactics to help you get stronger than you ever dreamed:
SQUATS: How many athletes are struggling to squat (badly) with a loaded barbell—wrecking their knees, backs and hips—because they haven’t yet mastered the essential pattern of the bodyweight squat? Discover how to permanently eliminate these faults, and build a legendary squatting style:
INVERSIONS: From ancient yoga to the hand-balancing loved by old-time strongmen, all the serious bodyweight systems treasure inversions: exercises where the body is supported upside-down. Perhaps this is the most impressive family of techniques, but it’s also the most misunderstood. With our methodology, even athletes with poor balance can be taught to crush these movements in record time:
LEG RAISES: Without a strong midsection, there can be no strength; and the fastest way to ramp up an athlete’s integrated, functional core strength is through leg raises. Discover:
BRIDGES: If there is a "secret weapon" to whip-like total-body strength and injury bullet-proofing, it’s the bridge family of movements. Yet virtually all trainers have a poor understanding of the art-form of bridging—in fact, most avoid it. Eliminate your weaknesses!
The opportunity to study all these cornerstone movements in-depth and in 3-D—while only inches away from bona fide masters of calisthenics—is absolutely invaluable, and will skyrocket your performance and understanding of these techniques in a way that videos or book study cannot hope to replicate. When you add to this the fact that participants will have the minutiae of their performance corrected by experts on all the basic movements, then you will see how athletes (and trainers and coaches) can make months—or even years—worth of progress in just one single course.
In addition, participants will get all the benefits of joining the industry’s largest and best-respected bodyweight training community, and get the chance to pick the brains of bodyweight instructors and aficionados from many different backgrounds.
As a further added bonus, all attendees will receive a copy of the 400+ page textbook, The SCC Instructor’s Manual, featuring the full course syllabus and progressions, as well as detailed content on many different aspects of bodyweight training from kinesiology and mental conditioning to programming science. This special volume will only be available to athletes who attend SCC, so don’t miss out.
Places for this unique certification will fill up incredibly fast—please book now to secure your place!
Although the testing is not as brutal as the notorious 100-rep "Century" test conducted at the end of the PCC certification, SCC attendees are required to demonstrate an adequate level of bodyweight strength and technical expertise in order to pass the certification. The SCC test is conducted at the completion of the workshop, and comprises:
SCC Testing Rules:
In order to be certified you must pass all requirements. If you fail one of the requirements, you will have 90 days to send in a video to your instructor or visit your instructor in person to retest the requirement you failed.
