COMING SOON! Weightlifting Seminar

September 30th Start of Weightlifting Workshops with Coach Yamashiro

Continuing on from the summer course, in response to your enthusiastic requests, the monthly weightlifting seminars by Coach Seiya Yamashiro, well-known for his "#挙活" program, will be held through to February. 

Tatsuro has been training with him online and in person for about two years now.
His instruction is clear and always inspiring.

Once a month over the past 4 months of seminars, coach Yamashiro taught the basics of the Snatch, Clean & Jerk in a way that addressed the specific concerns of all participants. We learned everything, right from basics such as how to grip the bar and the starting position, to the difference between power and squat catches and how to deal with shoulder stiffness. Some of the course participants actually set personal bests during the previous course!

It is difficult to convey how coach Yamashiro teaches through text alone, so here is a video of a portion of one seminar. This is an explanation of the catch position in the squat snatch.

If you are interested in Weightlifting, participating in the CF OPEN, and improving your CrossFit workout technique don't miss this opportunity.
Purchasing the full course in advance gives you priority for booking. You can also purchase single sessions if your schedule is not settled.
