Kettlebell Technique Wednesday!

Today we are going to spend some time reviewing one of the more advanced Kettbell techniques with profound “real world” application:  The Turkish Get-up. We will then put this technique into a challenging warm-up. We will keep the weight light to focus on technique and range of motion. Our Krav Maga class tonight will be focusing on the “street application” of this skill.
