What will you learn on our Level 1 instructor course?

You will learn the key principles of club swinging for safe and effective training. 

In Level 1, we focus on single club exercises, and how to set up a class for new beginners. Click the next tab to view content.
We use elements of Karlakattai, which comes from the  club swinging tradition of Southern India. This style relies on 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.
The Level 1 course sets all the foundations for you to progress to the more complex exercises with 2 clubs in our Level 2 course.  

Who is this course 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?

“Qui Docet, Dicet.” Those who teach, learn. Without students, without questions, a teacher cannot grow and improve.

    Coach Thierry melded his knowledge of ancient club swinging techniques and modern biomechanics and sports science to come up with an informative and fun course for both the casual hobbyist looking to improve their understanding and the coach who is looking to utilise this tool in both a class and a personal training setting.

    His attention to detail went thru all aspects of club swinging including coaching cues and the minutia of organising and spacing out the class prior to starting.

    5 STARS!

    The Heroic Sport certification program is well designed and executed. The instructions are clear. The product is exceptional. The customer service is second to none. I sent in my certification video and received very constructive feedback. Once I corrected my form and resubmitted my video, I received the certification immediately. I look forward to learning from Thierry! I am proud to be a part of the Heroic Sport community.

    Club Swinging is complicated.
    It’s something you must feel by putting hours of effort into practice and deconstruction.

    Yet Thiery managed to make it simple, fun, and approachable to all!

    Level 1 gives you the tools needed to begin your journey and what’s more important take others with you!

    RIch content.
    Easy to grasp principles.
    Great Coaching.

    If you think doing it – don’t.
    Just DO it!

    The course provides essential details both by book and videos, steps by steps. Very helpful and practical. It’s fun to learn and practice the exercises.

  5. Craig Orchard (verified owner)

    From start to finish taking this certification was a absolute pleasure! Thierry is always able to help support and guide you through the course. The tutorials are well explained and easy to follow. Would definitely recommend.

  6. Matthew (verified owner)

    I’ve been turning clubs for 5+ years now. I took this course because it would give me some more insight into the patterns I was already doing. Well I got a lot more than that. Thierry opened my eyes to an entire new world of Club Swinging.
    The videos and instruction are extremely clear and concise. The progressions allow for a safe and fun buildup. Overall amazing course!

    I’ve been using Indian Clubs for about 3 years now and studying the traditional British style club swinging for the past year. I own a gym and Bootcamp studio and teach a lot of group fitness classes. I’ve always found it difficult to incorporate club swinging into my workouts because people that are new to it always find it difficult to learn. That was until I met Thierry and found this single club swinging online certification! I love Thierry’s approach to teaching club swinging and his progressions. I found so many useful tips and exercise variations in this course. My favourite part is how Thierry combines traditional swinging methods with more modern day exercises like lunges and squats. There is something for everyone in this certification and this will take your club game to the next level! I have a new tool to use my in my group fitness classes every day! Highly Recommend!!!

  8. Hugo Reigt

    There is more than you can imagine in this certification. Thierry Sanchez shares a lot of knowledge about the clubs. It’s definitively not a one shot certification : full of details, technics, videos, explanations…and a good community support! It’s a solid and long term tool and I feel ready and enthusiastic about spreading the world with Pahlavandles!

  9. Alexa (verified owner)

    I pass this certification at my own pace. I took time to ask questions in Facebook group and use it anytime.
    It was a really great experience. Now, I can use it to improve myself, understand how to use it in best way and show it at people around me.

    Thanks a lot !

  10. Push Dhillon

    Fantastic experience and a total body work out.
    I want to thank my gym and Thierry Sanchez of Heroic Sport for an incredible Indian Clubs workshop in High Wycombe last Saturday. I attended this workshop for shoulder strength and flexibility but Thierry discussed and introduced even more benefits of Indian Club training and they are so vast. Things like body coordination, grip and core strength as well as cardiovascular exercises really make this workshop worthwhile attending. Considering it was a full day the way the course was structured ensured that the energy levels and egagement were always high. Once again thanks very much for this great experience.
