The Indian Clubs Online Certification level 1 covers all the foundation and key principles of club swinging for safe and effective training, and your further development.
We focus on single club exercises, and how to set up a class for new beginners. Experience has taught us people learn faster this way, which makes a huge impact on motivation levels.
We use elements of Karlakattai and training with mudgars, which comes from the club swinging tradition of Tamil culture and India . We include a wide variety of swings and footwork, such as steps, pivoting moves, lunges and squats.
The footwork turns club swinging into a true full body and mind exercise, linking movement to the timing of the swings.
We show you 14 foundation exercises and their progressions, so that everyone in a class can find a variation to suit their skill levels. Some exercises are single hand exercises, while others are double handed exercises.
This Indian clubs online certification Level 1 course sets all the foundations for you to progress to the more complex exercises with 2 clubs in our Level 2 course.
Indian Clubs Online Certification | Who is it for?
Typically, people attending our courses have some background in the fitness industry or are physical therapists.
However, many participants have no previous experience with Indian clubs. All of our certified instructors end up running classes in a short time and integrate what they learnt in some aspect of their business.
If you want to take this course for personal development, it is OK too. We avoid high tech jargon so that anyone can understand and apply the material we provide.
Our goal is keep this level 1 course as simple as possible so that you learn only the essential stuff to get started teaching other people.
We want you to be able to do a few things well, instead of bombarding you with flashy information.
No certification can teach you all that took years to develop… Being a teacher or instructor is a lifelong process. Are you ready for it?

How long does this Indian clubs online certification take to complete?
You can work at your own rhythm, just remember to send your tests within 6 months of the purchase date.
Realistically, you will probably spend 6-8 hours to go through the material covered in the manual and videos.
After that, expect at the very minimum 30 hours of practice to work on your technique and be ready to submit your test attempt. If you have previous experience with clubs, you might be able to cut that time in half.
Once you’re happy with your skills, the last thing to do is to film, edit and publish your videos, and return your written exam. This part probably will require 2-3 hours work.
We recommend you to have a profile on Facebook to interact with other instructors .
This interaction is important since you are taking this course online, and will need sparring partners to develop your skills. You will be able to post videos and get feedback.
You must submit your physical and written tests within 6 months of taking the course. In case of a late submission or failed attempt, you will have to pay an admin fee of 35€ (before VAT, if applicable).
