More than just an Indian club seminar, the Agatsu program will introduce you to some of the most powerful training and teaching concepts guaranteed to change how you look at fitness.

Indian clubs are time-tested training tools that are ideal for mobility and active recovery, as well as developing strength and stability. Unlike many conventional weight training tools, Indian clubs are unique in their ability to develop movement capacity in all three planes of motion. Linear strength is great, but it is also just one piece of the puzzle. If you are ready to evolve your training, it's time to start moving with clubs.

Learning points in the Revolve to Evolve program

  • Classical and non-classical Indian club exercises such as swings, mills, large and small circles, wrist rolls, casts, and more, along with many other essential techniques
  • Techniques for light (two pounds) and heavy club training
  • Fundamentals of mace training
  • Developing a deep understanding of Indian club basics, and their multiple variations and uses to help you break through training plateaus
  • Joint mobility theory and basics as a means for joint preparation and injury prevention pre- and post-workout
  • Safe and incremental exercise scaling to suit the ability of a wide range of students
  • The Agatsu Indian club routines, and how to develop your own
  • Discovering how adding Indian clubs to your training can help cut your warm-up in as much as half the usual time
  • Use of Indian club training to develop sport-specific qualities such as rotational power, grip strength, strength endurance, core stability, and more
