KB Sport Technique worshop in TACOMA CrossFit, Sept. 19th

The Beginner workshop will be focused on learning the Kettlebell Sport swing (one handed), the clean, the press and push press. The jerk and the snatch will be introduced, but the focus will be on mastering the aforementioned basics. Many unique and time tested drills will be shown and explained. We will provide the Competitive style KBs for use during the workshops, but you can bring your own Comp KB if you want.

The Intermediate workshop will focus on the Long Cycle Clean and Jerk, with 1 and 2 KBs, the competitive snatch, and the 2 KB Jerk. You will learn many fine points of technique and training, things that will put you on the road to mastering these lifts. Detailed training programs and assistance lifts will be covered.

These workshops will be taught by Tom Corrigan and Mikhail (Misha) Marshak, who is an expert Competitive Kettlebell lifter from Moscow, who moved to the Seattle area three years ago. He trained under World Champion and highly decorated Coach and Trainer Sergey Rudnev. Misha brings a huge amount of training knowledge and technique experience to each workshop. Tom Corrigan recently got back from St. Petersburg, Russia, where he trained with Sergey Rudnev, and other high level coaches and KB Sport World Champions.

You can see a short video of Misha lifting during his competitive days in and around Moscow on the YouTube clip:

The Beginner Class is from 9 am until 12 noon and is $100
