Buying a mace does not make you a mace coach, it just means you have a tool to learn with.
People copy some stuff they see on YouTube and then try to teach it to others. That is not coaching ! Though there is nothing wrong with learning a few things that way, just don’t wreak havoc on your friends/clients by trying to teach them things you don’t even really know how to do yourself. I knew I had to invest in my training and practice much. I was mentored online by Rik Brown for 1 1/2 years in addition to having trained under Don Giafardino at three different workshops and a Vintage Strength Certification.
Programming for ongoing improvement in a person’s training is not a haphazard event. It is a progression that must be well-planned and executed.
We have been writing training programs for maces/clubs that actually work and get results. This has been repeatedly tested in real classes for 2 1/2 years so far.
If you are just starting out with this type of training, get a good coach and invest in your own training. Also attend our macefit.com workshops and certifications.
