VIRTUAL ACADEMY

Often referred to as the 'Einstein of Martial Arts' - now you get to be a personal student of Coach Rodney no matter where you live in the world!

"I’ve been a fan of the Crazy Monkey Defence for many years. It was a great privilege to have Rodney come out to Kings Academy to teach a seminar. It was even better to see his passion for teaching and the effectiveness of what he taught. I look forward to having him out to Kings Academy for a follow up seminar when he’s next back in the country"

WELCOME TO THE COACH RODNEY'S VIRTUAL ACADEMY

Welcome…this is my personal invitation to you to become one of my students. As I no longer run a brick and mortar academy, this is now the only way to train with me.

To be honest, I far more prefer teaching via my Virtual Academy. Not only do I get to engage with students from all over the world, those who join my Virtual Academy are the kind of people I most want to teach: focused, dedicated, and love to learn.

 

HOW THE VIRTUAL ACADEMY WORKS

I have designed key programs that I run throughout the year that you can take from anywhere in the world with minimal equipment. These are highly interactive live sessions (never pre-recorded) and via Zoom. All you need is an internet connection, a space to train, and you good to go!

Each program is capped at 20 participants, and typically runs for 4-weeks. In this way training with me can be targeted, specific, and most importantly personal.

By joining my Virtual Academy you become one of my students, I want to get to know you personally, I want to see you succeed. This is also a fun and challenging way to be evaluated in my programs. You will get world class training, along with international recognition for the skills you develop.

NEXT START DATE: 31ST OCTOBER 202O

STRIKING BLUEPRINT

A 4-week interactive training program designed to take your hand striking game to the next level

The Striking Blueprint consists of 4 virtual Zoom sessions held each Saturday, with the first session taking place on the 31st of October 2020. This Striking Blueprint course will focus specifically on helping you develop your outside or distance game, with a focus on Crazy Monkey boxing. 

In each virtual Zoom session, Coach Rodney will lay out a blueprint, and a plan of action you will need to take for the following week. During that week, you will be expected to work out on your own for a minimum of 2 sessions. You then meet again the following Saturday with the rest of your cohort to troubleshoot and ask questions that may have come up for you in the past week of training. Rodney then focuses on the next week of training.

After the final week of training should you want to get certified in the Crazy Monkey Gloves Program, you will be asked to submit a video of you bringing all the material together covered in the 4-weeks of Striking Blueprint training. Certification is optional, and you don’t need to take the certification route to complete the program.
