Prague 3 – Vinohrady
The one-day SFG Kettlebell Course is more than entry-level user instruction for the AK-47 of exercise equipment—the kettlebell. It is education in moving strong.
Visit the beatiful and magial city of Prague, “Heart of the Europe” and learn the most fundamental kettlebell exercises of Pavel Tsatsouline’s SFG curriculum!
Taught by Pavel Macek Sifu of Practical Hung Kyun (SFG2, SFL, SFB, CK-FMS) and his wife Justyna K. Mackova (SFG2, SFL, SFB, CK-FMS).
No previous kettlebell experience is required. No matter what your goals are, we strongly urge you to take this Course. On one end of the spectrum, subtleties taught in this Course have been instrumental in helping Donnie Thompson make a breakthrough in strength while making back problems a thing of the past—and eventually breaking the 3,000 pound world superheavyweight powerlifting total record. On the other end is Tracy Reifkind, who lost over 100 pounds in less than a year.
