My Next Steps with Russian Kettlebells

Rkc-team-leaderThis was finally released today to RKC community and I thought I would share it with you guys as well:

Congratulations and a big thank you to Mike Krivka for accepting the position of Team Leader in Dragon Door's new RKC leadership. Besides his very long history of loyalty to Dragon Door and the RKC, Mike has shown himself to be a tireless champion of the kettlebell. Most noteworthy has been his sterling work in support of the Wounded Warrior Project. We have always been grateful to Mike for having introduced Dragon Door and Pavel to Dan Inosanto, which led in turn to Dr. Mark Cheng becoming involved with us.

Here is some more information about Mike:

Michael A. Krivka, Sr. is a Washington, DC native who has been involved in Kettlebell training for over a decade and is currently an RKC Kettlebell Instructor and member of the RKC Board of Advisors under Dragon Door (where he has been listed as one of the top reviewed RKCs in the world for the last five years). Mike has traveled extensively throughout the United States teaching Russian Kettlebells to military (USMC, USN, USA and USAF) and law enforcement personnel (FBI, DEA, USSS and CIA) as well hard-living civilians from Soccer Moms to CEOs. He is also a Level I Crossfit Trainer and Olympic Lifting Coach.

Mike runs a Russian Kettlebell/CrossFit gym, and a martial arts school where he teaches Jeet Kune Do, Filipino Martial Arts (Kali, Escrima, Arnis and Maphilindo Silat) and other martial disciplines, and a 501(c)(3) named Kettlebells for Warriors that raises funds each year to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and the Congressional Medal of Honor Society.

His martial arts training background, sparked by a childhood fascination with Bruce Lee, spans early training in Tae Kwon Do, Judo, Wrestling, Western Fencing, Sambo, Ninjutsu, Muay Thai and Gung Fu and has culminated in a Full Instructor status with over 25 years of training in JKD (Jeet Kune Do Concepts) and the Filipino Martial Arts (Kali, Escrima, Arnis and Maphilindo Silat) under Guro Dan Inosanto and other prominent instructors. He continues to train in and explore other martial arts to continue to hone his technical and teaching skills.
