We are excited to announce that we recently hosted the first official Kettlebell Partner Passing workshop since the start of the pandemic in Rancho Cucamonga, California. What a breath of fresh air it was to meet new people and have fellowship in an intentional manner that emphasized the importance of connection, communication, community — and play!
(Wait for it... the best part comes at the end of the video!)
The workshop was an affirmation that in person connection is needed now more than ever to remedy the negative effects of the isolation we have all experienced over the past two years. Many of us have been dealing with loneliness, anxiety, depression, and a host of other mental challenges. Kettlebell Partner Passing is a solution that is sorely needed to heal and rebuild our communities and our society as a whole.
We began the workshop doing Kettlebell Solo with Brittany, who recently became a KPP Instructor. Kettlebell Solo is an exercise program that lays the foundation for Kettlebell Partner Passing through a series of exercises that strengthen the body and mind.

The rest of the workshop was about building confidence with straight and flip passes. There was a range of kettlebell passing experience among the attendees of the workshop, and everyone had the opportunity to improve at their own pace.
A few students at the workshop even got a taste of more advanced kettlebell passing variations with KPP Instructor Mike Visscher!
The after party was a welcome addition that added to the enjoyment of the workshop! More passing, food, and good conversation forged deeper connections between fellow KPPers. We’ve realized the after party is a crucial way to integrate the lessons of KPP outside of the physical practice of passing, and will be a staple part of KPP workshops in the future.
