Joint Mobility & Body Weight training have been a part of the Agatsu system since its inception. Through years of study of various health and martial arts systems, yoga, dance and gymnastics, Shawn Mozen has partnered with Sara-Clare Lajeunesse to create an active and effective joint mobility program that has become the corner stone to all of their training. With the simple idea that we must first learn to master our own bodies before we can learn to overcome the resistance offered by weights, the Agatsu Joint Mobility & Movement program was born.
UPPER BODY- Level 1, you will learn:
- How, why, when and where should you use Joint Mobility in your training? Explore the fundamentals of joint mobility and joint preparation training and the essential roles they play in warm-up and injury prevention.

This course is designed to provide you with the tools necessary to excel in these areas and is suitable for all levels.
