Locked out of the AKC

Post by Shafpocalypse Now » Fri Aug 13, 2010 5:03 pm

For pointing out that Liford and other members of the AKC engaged in as much inflammatory rhetoric as anyone else. Maybe questioning the dubious marketablity of mythical IED events helped as well.

However, I did express a desire to put the promotion of assorted forms of kettlebell sport ahead of any intra-organizational issues.

Not entirely unexpected, but there were legitimate questions that I wanted answered.

I've paid for a cert and I've bought plenty of extra kettlebells from them. It's really in the best interests of all to reinstate my access.

Where did you dare do such things?
I can't log on any more since they changed the format.

On the "members" forum, rather than on the "coaches" forum.

The AKC needs to acknowledge their mis-steps and move forward. Including making a statement about the IED event that supposedly killed a battalion of rangers and left Kettleball Bob maimed.

Also, "The Fedoranko Method" is nothing more than a phrase coined by Mike Stefano for ad copy purposes and to add authority to his blog posts. There is no "Fedoranko Method" laid out anywhere, or if there is, I haven't seen it. VFed has loose guidelines for training, guidelines that he considers important, and they chime with what Rudnev and some of the other Russian coaches advise.

I like VF's training videos he puts out on youtube. His latest one is very nice.

Message from American Kettlebell Club

You have been banned for the following reason:
No reason was specified.

Date the ban will be lifted: Never
Fuck. I can see the IKFF banning me because I'm a freeloader, but with the AKC I paid for a cert and 3 additional kettlebells!

This is a clear sign from Gorilla Jesus that it's time for you to strike out on your own and form your own Kookyball Fed.

Acknowledging mis-steps is not something that comes naturally to fitness organizations. See also: @fit HQ.

Single charismatic leader.
People always seeming constantly happy and enthusiastic. Especially if you discover that they have been told to act that way for the potential new recruits.
Instant friends.
If you are told who you can or cannot talk to or associate with.
They hide what they teach.
Say they are the only true group, or the best so why go anywhere else.
Hyped meetings, get you to meetings rather than share with you.
Experiential rather than logical.
Asking for money for the next level.
Some cults travel door to door during times when women are home alone. They, and this is rather sexist, think that women are easier to recruit and once they have the woman then it will be easier to snare the husband or partner.
Saying that they have to make people pay for it because otherwise they will not appreciate it. This is of course a very silly reason, plenty of people are able to appreciate things which they did not pay for.

AKC put out a statement regarding this Kettlebell Bob guy, who was supposedly a US Marshall or something, who was in Afghanistan, and involved in an IED incident that wounded him and "took out a battalion of rangers".

This was rapidly shown to be bullshit by the Ranger contingent on IGx and an outcry was raised, so the offending parts were removed.

The rest of the story is in the AKC Cunt thread.

It is, but that said, I will totally sign up for Comrade Shafelov's One True Kookyball Party when the revolution comes.

My existing gym logo already lends itself pretty well to the theme.

Taking out a battalion would be noteworthy and widely publicized.

Yeah you'd think.

Plus, what the fuck would a US marshal (air marshal?) be doing in a combat situation in Afghanistan?

Magnify on that statement.
Unfortunately, while on a mission in Afghanistan an I.E.D. went off, throwing him 30 feet in the air…

82 Rangers, 5 Special Ops, and 2 Civilians were killed in the blast. In Bobs own words, he was one of the lucky 32 that was injured. He sustained chemical burns to his esophagus and lung linings, a bruised liver, two broken ribs, and a dispersed nerve bundle on the right side affecting his shoulder and hip. The nerve damage requires him to retrain his leg to respond as well as his right shoulder. He’s going through some very evasive medical procedures and medications due to the toxins from the blast, so he’s lost his hair and some of his vision due to the Chemotherapy. He’s lost a lot of the hearing on his left side and his white blood cells and platelets are very low. The good news is Bob is making progress and has already booked his travel to Chicago and plans to be one of our Full-Time Judges!

We also would like to announce Coach Robert Goewey as WKC Master Trainer, and once he makes a full recovery, he will be available for WKC’s Elite Fitness Trainer Licensing.


The fact that he got on the platform after all that and did Strong Sport(tm) like a year later makes me want to run out and get OTW certified.

The question is: was it a lie-man editor creating a fantastic story, complete with fall guy, poor grammar and punctuation or was it the tall tale of a lie-kettleball-man whose story was reported by a extraordinarily naive editor who chose to use poor grammar and punctuation in his blog? Or, was it a collaborative effort between the two?

Great idea! The Kettlebell Club of Shafpocalypse, KCoSh. Or KOSH for short. The birth of a new cult where the phrase "Oh my KOSH!" would have a new meaning. Or use Russian - ГКШ, for "Гиревой Клуб Шафа" and start working on an accent.
