From an original background in ITF Taekwondo, and after gaining my 1st Degree Black Belt in 2007, I began to extend my traditional bodyweight-focused training to incorporate more modern Strength and Conditioning training principles in 2009.  I have since learned to incorporate elements of Olympic and Power lifting into my programmes, combined with the various assistance exercises.  Without doubt, one of the most valuable tools I have learned to utilise is the kettlebell.  Having completed both the Level 1 kettlebell course and also the Level 2 Masterclass with Steve from The Strength Academy, I would highly recommend these courses to anyone looking to extend their own knowledge of this enormously powerful training tool.  With Steve, you will not only be benefitting from some of the top kettlebell instruction, but you will also have access to an enormous amount of knowledge on human physiology, corrective exercise, programme design and the biomechanics of weight lifting.  For a full-service training provider, I would highly recommend The Strength Academy.
