Rob Eis earned his CrossFit Kettlebell certification

Rob Eis earned his CrossFit kettlebell instructor’s certification directly from Jeff Martone in 2008 when he visited the Suquamish tribal police department for a two day in-depth instructor’s course.


Martone is the first to implement kettlebell and tactical strength training into a federal law enforcement academy.  He has also served for over 15 years as a full-time defensive tactics, firearms, and special response team instructor for the Nuclear National Security Administration.

I’ve seen lots of Youtube videos of people doing the Turkish Get-up from standing-to-ground with their propped arm back behind them. That’s how I did it when i first learned. For better alignment try the version demonstrated in the video above.
Full credit goes to Jeff Martone for showing me this alteration to the TGU.

Thank you Unbridled Martial Arts. Attending Rob’s class has enabled me to reopen a door in my life that has been closed for far too long. I have always been a fierce competitor but over the years I lost my focus and forgot how much I loved challenging myself mentally and physically. I absolutely love this training. It’s been a long time since I felt this good. What a difference. Rob is not only a great instructor, he is an asset to our community. Very few people take the time to share what they believe is of value with others the way Rob does. I look forward to class every week and am thrilled to have the opportunity to train in this non-commercial setting.
