Dragon Door’s Vision for the HKC and RKC in 2013 and beyond

by John Du Cane, CEO and founder, Dragon Door on January 1, 2013

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:
