We’re excited to bring our members a whole new way to train; Kenzai Skill courses! With these two week mini-courses you’ll learn one specific skill related to fitness, nutrition or well-being.
We’ll take you through the fundamentals of a new skill with an emphasis on concrete, achievable results. Skill Courses are 14 days and designed to fit between your larger training programs. It’s a great way to stay engaged without the intensity and time commitment of a full Kenzai program.
Each day you’ll receive a lesson by email. Two weeks later you’ll have a new understanding of your skill from the ground up.
We suggest that you select only one Skill Course at a time and not be on a full Kenzai program while you’re learning a new skill. Each course--whether it focuses on cooking, fitness, or self-improvement--will require reading and daily practice time. Skill Courses kicks off every 2 weeks on Mondays.
Email email@example.com to sign up for a Skill Course.
Next course starting: TBD
