Indian Club & Mace Certification

Mace Certification



Agatsu has pioneered Mace and Club training across Canada and abroad introducing the first course to cover light and heavy clubs along with Mace training.

More than just an Indian Club & Mace seminar, the Agatsu program will introduce you to some of the most powerful training and teaching concepts guaranteed to change how you and your clients look at fitness. Indian Clubs and Maces are time tested training tools that are ideal for mobility/active recovery as well as developing strength and stability. Unlike many conventional weight training tools, Indian Clubs & Maces are unique in their ability to develop movement capacity in all three planes of motion. Linear strength is great but it is also just one piece of the puzzle. If you are ready to evolve your training it’s time to start moving with a mace and clubs.
