We can’t say it better
Here’s a testimonial from Mark D. from England. Not everybody posts reviews on our products, but we receive lots of emails!
“In the last few weeks I’ve been actively using the Heroic Sport training material and I’m now in a position to give some feedback.
I’ve been club swinging for about six or seven years having first learnt the military-style from a couple of Mike Simpson’s weekend sessions in Sheffield. Together with one of his training DVD’s, this was my grounding.
Over the years, I have built up a good set of wooden clubs spanning the 1.00 to 4.00 kg range, together with a single Sim Kehoe 6.00 kg replica. However, I have become increasingly dissatisfied with my style and skills.
The style I learnt focused more on the individual swings to the neglect of the switches and transitions between them.
I have since realized these transitions are the essence of the art of club swinging. At the same time, the military-style – at attention, face forward – has increasingly felt artificial and restricted.
Internet and YouTube searches reveal that there are many impressive examples of complex choreography and whole-body sequences out there. However, for me at least, most create more frustration than enlightenment. They are rarely broken down into the basic building blocks that you first need to master.
This frustration and wish to improve eventually led me to Heroic Sport. For someone wanting to learn Indian clubs, or improve their ability, especially those looking for more natural whole-body flows, without doubt – Heroic Sport is the best there is.
The training materials are well organised and widely illustrated. Through Thierry’s expert instruction and useful tips, you are taken from the essential building blocks (grips, breathing, stance, etc) through the main swings to the switches and transitions you need to gracefully move between. The video is excellent quality and the use of slow motion, special clubs, front and back views, and step by step troubleshooting, works very well.
I have mainly spent the last few weeks working through the sections on switching direction, changing swings and changing rhythm. While I have still a lot of practice to look forward to, I can do things now that I could not before!
Its opened up a whole new dimension of the clubs. “

In the video below, I switch between heart shaped swings by using stopping one club in a static hold, which is a great way to start, and easier for people. But all transitions can be done in flow. Practice, and if you manage to perform the whole routine flawlessly with Indian club transitions, remember to post it on our Facebook page!
