IKFF Scotland, Edinburgh 2009

I recently had the opportunity to head up to Edinburgh accompanied by Jonathan Lewis to assist on the IKFF (International Kettlebell and Fitness Federation) Course in Scotland.

It's always inspiring to reconnect with Steve Cotter and Ken Blackburn, their phenomenal athletic prowess is matched only by their humility, and generosity as Coaches. Jason Dolby also came over from the States to bless the course with his presence, his enthusiasm and technical knowledge helped to sustain the energy of the group over the weekend.

The host for the weekend was Rannoch of Kettlebells Scotland. I had previously been in contact with Rannoch about a collective project we've been working on (more info coming soon), but had never actually met him. Rannoch is without a doubt a diamond. If you are training with Kettlebells in Scotland, seek this man out. Knowledgable, with more passion and enthusiasm then the energizer bunny (once you get him going), Rannoch is welcoming with a no nonsense approach.

The IKFF delivered a high quality content Kettlebell Course, as I'm sure you've noticed by all the stuff circulating online. I met a truly inspiring group of people that weekend, check out some of the highlights below.
