John Du Cane here wishing you a Happy New Year and a strong, healthy and prosperous 2013!

We thought this would be a great day to share our current vision for Dragon Door’s HKC and RKC programs for 2013 and beyond. We predict explosive growth as Dragon Door continues to enhance and expand on the prior curriculum and our leadership takes the program to ever-greater levels of excellence.

The purpose of the HKC and RKC – Dragon Door’s kettlebell certification system – is to educate and produce highly trained and qualified kettlebell instructors, while maintaining the rigorous physical standards of the pre-existing program.

As the HKC/RKC certification system has a primary mission of producing highly trained and qualified kettlebell instructors, the ability to demonstrate the skills of teaching and performance will be the first focus of the system and subsequently the events. This includes providing the instructor candidates with solid, consistent instruction on the correct performance of each kettlebell exercise, as well as the tools needed to instruct people of all backgrounds and physical capabilities on safe and effective kettlebell technique.  And lastly, supplying them with a deep understanding of this principle-based system.

This will be achieved by presenting each kettlebell exercise with the appropriate learning progressions, regressions, modifications and corrections. The result of this approach is safe, effective kettlebell technique, enhanced movement skills, and improved athletic performance.

The HKC/RKC, under the management of Dragon Door Publications, will also provide each certified instructor with further professional learning opportunities, support, marketing tools, as well as networking through their growing community and resources.

Dragon Door Publications will also provide opportunities for instructors to personally demonstrate their own physical strength and skill – outside of the certification courses – at yearly competitions, conferences and through other online means. The purpose of these events will be both community building as well as to have a vehicle to showcase the talent and achievements of our instructors and community members.

Dragon Door already has 12 RKC workshops scheduled for 2013. We look forward to seeing you at one of them:

      Thank you Amber!

    I myself am re-certified through 2014. However, I have co-workers who are in need of an opportunity to re-cert. Their certs run out in mid April. What are their options for re-certifications? There have been no re-certification workshops offered.

    thanks,
    Todd Hitchcock
    RKC, CK-FMS

      Hi Todd,

      Thank you for your query. We do have one coming up in January, and we post all of our recert opportunities on this page. http://www.dragondoor.com/workshops/?F_c=20. We hope that helps!

      Best,

      Dragon Door

    There aren’t details regarding these competitions/conferences. I fear this is leaning toward a CF environment… I’d love for that to not be the case…

      Hi Shelly,

      Did you click on any of the links at the end of the article? Each item in blue text is a link that takes you to the page where you can get more details and register. Please let us know if there’s anything more we can do to help.

      Best,

    • Shelly,
      We haven’t published these details, yet, that is correct. Rest assured it will be significantly different from CF!

  • Al

    Are there any plans for a RKC 2 in the near future?

  • Al,

    Excuse the late reply, but yes, we should be announcing it in a couple of weeks.
