Most of our RKC instructors—and a very great number of our HardStyle customers—are in frankly fantastic physical shape. In the top two or three percent of the nation. And that is what we at Dragon Door pride ourselves on, first and foremost: promoting the highest level of physical excellence and achievement through the most effective and efficient training methods on the planet.
However, just show up to the free lesson at one of our RKC certification workshops and take a look at the 100+ unsuspecting victims who volunteer to be put through the mill by our RKC candidates. You will see folk who range from having 200 pounds of extra lard on them—to spindly, skeletal geeks without a shred of noticeable muscle. You see the halt, the lame, the uncoordinated, the injured, the elderly, the bewildered teenagers—you name it.
And what's the commonality for all these folk? Despite their individual challenges, they have all shown up with the hope of transcending their current limitations through the use of kettlebells. The great news is that the RKC program has built a system of expertise that can genuinely help what is known in the industry as "special populations".
As a Senior RKC with a multi-disciplinary background and a particular concern for this client-base, Andrea Du Cane has helped hundreds of her clients break through their particular physical challenges—and live more vigorous, satisfied lives.
The Level II RKC certification teaches our instructors a multitude of methods to address corrective, preventive and restorative issues for their clients. Andrea Du Cane's thorough and broad-ranging presentation on Working with Special Populations was extremely well received—and, as with the other Senior presentations at this Level II RKC, we have therefore decided to make it available to the public.
Of course you don't have to be an RKC—or a "Spec Pop"—to benefit enormously from the wealth of amazing information Andrea shares with you here. The material is priceless, whatever your condition or athletic background.
"In the growing culture of corrective training for both athletes and the sedentary, Andrea is an invaluable resource."— Paul Daniels, Personal Trainer, Foothill Ranch, CA
