My name is Felipe Gaona, I'm a Hung Kuen practitioner from Chile, I'm just beginning since I've been training for just two years now, and I feel like I have a lot to learn.
I've also been following Pavel Tsatsouline's work, I just got the Simple & Sinister book and I love it since it's really simple (of course), but I begun to wonder if there are any specific kettlebell workouts that could improve my Hung Kuen.
I know Sifu Pavel Macek works with kettlebells and they seem to be very popular in Crossfit too, so if anyone has some tips I'd love to hear them.

welcome to the forum!
Besides teaching and practicing Hung Kyun under Lam family, I am also a student of Pavel Tsatsouline and certified StrongFirst kettlebell instructor (SFG1, SFG2), bodyweight instructor (SFB) and barbell instructor (SFL).
- Attend 1-Day StrongFirst SFG Kettlebell Course
- Follow the Simple & Sinister program to the letter
- Once you fulfill the "Simple" standards (ie. 100 one-hand swings with 32 kg i 5 minutes, and 5+5 Get-ups with 32 kg in 10 minutes), send me an email, and I will tell you what to do next.
Btw., I am currently responsible for strength and conditioning training of elite Czech MMA fighters, including the only Czech UFC fighter Viktor Pesta. Guess what they do as their fundamental program? S&S. If it is good enough for them, it should be good enough for all of us.

Thanks for the welcome message and advice, it's good to know that I can follow the Simple & Sinister program for fundamental training, I'm currently doing it with a 16kg kettlebell so I still have plenty of work to do before fulfilling the simple standards.
I'd love to go to a StrongFirst Kettlebell Course, but I've been looking and there aren't any instructors for the program in Chile, which is a common problem here I guess, maybe in the future!
