Indian Club Workshop 2017
Are you interested in Indian Clubs, Persian Meels or Gada (Mace)?
Would you like to host a workshop or an instructor course during the months of June and July 2017?
My readers and subscribers visit my websites because they want more information about Indian Clubs, Persian Meels and the Gada (Mace).
I believe that many people want to learn, but they are unsure where to start.
To help solve the problem I started to record and present online video lessons and information based on my personal experience and research over the last ten years.
My mission is to promote club swinging, it’s methods, benefits, and history for future generations.

My knowledge of Indian Club swinging has come from old books and manuals, continuous practice and skills development.
I learnt to swing Persian Meels at the Zurkhaneh Academy in Shiraz, Iran.
Two extended visits to Varanasi and Mysore, India gave me to opportunity to learn how to swing the Gada (Mace) and Jori Clubs.
