What is Kettlebell Solo Foundations?

The Kettlebell Partner Passing (KPP) System 

Kettlebell Partner Passing (KPP) is a training system that improves connection and communication with others while building stronger communities through cooperative, synergistic relationships founded in equality. The benefits of KPP include: tangible benefits such as strength, balance, coordination, agility; and intangible benefits such as the ability to be self-aware, connect more deeply, communicate authentically and cooperate more effectively with others. Passing kettlebells with a partner is an integral part of the system; however, there are additional ways to receive the benefits of KPP.  The most prominent of which is the Kettlebell Solo Foundations program which incorporates several important elements for athleticism: rotational training and the footwork required to move and flow with the kettlebell in all directions. Addressing and practicing these essential variables allows the individual to strengthen and prepare themselves, mind and body for partner practice.

What is the Kettlebell Solo Foundations Training Program?

The Kettlebell Solo Foundations program uses the kettlebell to build strength, endurance, and physical vitality. Kettlebell Solo is a comprehensive program that takes into account the physical, mental, and emotional health of individuals and how they relate in their communities. 

Practically speaking, Kettlebell Solo Foundations consists of a number of exercises that directly prepare you to pass kettlebells with a partner. Specifically, when passing a kettlebell with a partner there are forces you must be able to generate and positions you need to be strong in. When you receive a pass from your partner, you need to be able to absorb force from unpredictable angles safely.  Kettlebell Solo prepares the body to handle the unknown by training in stances and ranges of motion that come into play on the journey from two hand passing to KPP freestyle and beyond. Whether you want to train to become a better partner, or simply get stronger… Kettlebell Solo does both. The beauty of Kettlebell Solo is that you can improve your passing skills without a partner! 

The greatest benefit of Kettlebell Solo, however, is its ability to teach you how to tune into yourself, so you can connect more deeply and authentically with others. True strength comes from within, and expands far beyond physical strength. True strength can be measured by how completely we love ourselves and the people around us. As we learn to love ourselves by cultivating a personal practice, our capacity for love expands. Kettlebell Solo offers us a personal practice of  discovery and self-love, which is why it’s an ideal place to embark on your KPP journey.
