The first is our Level I Seminar on Chinese weightlifting technique which is a practical, hands-on seminar that introduces the fundamental technical elements to improve  snatch, clean, and jerk technique under the guidance of expert coaches at Ma Strength. In this unique weightlifting clinic you will:

  • Learn Chinese weightlifting technique using China’s learning progression for the snatch, clean, and jerk,
  • Have your lifting evaluated individually and within a group setting to learn from others, and
  • Practice this style of lifting with weights attendees feel comfortable with while receiving verbal cues from experienced coaches.

Level II:

Next is our Level II seminar. The first portion of this seminar is primarily lecture-based for coaches who want to enhance their coaching skills. Experienced athletes who want to improve their understanding of weightlifting techniques are welcomed as well. The latter portion covers coaching cues for implementing Chinese weightlifting technique through hands-on instruction and group critique.
