As a part of my preparation for the main certification - the RKC in Copenhagen in May together with Pavel "the Macho Russian" Tsatsouline, I joined the HKC at the weekend. Professionally organized by Fredrik Högström, we spent a day together with Kenneth Jay and Dennis Frisch.
A bird´s view of the group
To get your certification you need to prove some strength. In the HKC that´s hanging with your chin over the bar for a minimum of 15 sec. I was prepared for 25 (because that´s what it said on the website) but certainly didn´t mind 10 seconds less. :)
I was SO cold for the main part of the day, with a runny nose and a terrible cough...but I DID wear colour! ;)
Kettlebell has really helped me fixing my poor ankle mobility
Getting graded at the end of the day. First: technique...
...and then in teaching skills...
