Indian Club Workshop 2017

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?

I run two websites, a YouTube Channel, a Facebook Page, and Instagram dedicated to the arts of Indian Clubs, Persian Meels and the Gada (Mace).

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.
