Our Kabuki Movement System courses are widely regarded as one of the most in-depth, educational, and practical curriculums in the  industry. KMS courses are held multiple times each year all over the continental United States, and traveling to attend the one nearest to you is well worth it (ask anyone who has done so). We currently offer three distinct courses: Principles of Loaded Movement, Advanced Athlete Preparation, and a Coaches Certification.

We manage every aspect of your program on a week to week basis to ensure you are maximizing your effort training. You can expect less than 24hr turnaround time from when you submit your plan to when the updated version is delivered to you.
We aren't just looking at numbers. We ensure all of our athletes are working to be as efficient as possible to prevent injuries and express more of the strength they already have. Everything included in Movement Coaching is included here.
This is where you submit your training plan, videos, and any other feedback each week. You'll also have links to our video library, Facebook group, and your Coaches calendar so you can schedule phone or Skype calls whenever you'd like.
Also on the dashboard you'll have access to unique discount codes to our store that may be applied to equipment, apparel, or any other products in our store. You'll also receive 50% off any of our seminars, and a free Lab membership.
No stone is left unturned in our initial assessment. We look at movement quality, injury history, available equipment, days you want to train, sleep habits, hydration, and many other factors. All of this information comes together in your training plan specifically for you.
Monday - Friday we sit down and video conference with any of our athletes who are training to give live technique feedback, answer questions, and build our community. You also get feedback from a different perspective from other coaches on our staff.

This is a technique and movement correction specific program. We'll evaluate your movement quality as it relates to the primary lifts via barefoot training footage and a comprehensive questionnaire specific to movement coaching.
Your training videos will be evaluated each week to ensure you are making progress in the drills and exercises you are performing.
Full access to our private video library which houses 300+ videos, lectures, and forum.
The primary goal of Movement Coaching is to keep you healthy or get you healthy. An athlete who can train longer will be stronger, period.
We use the same principles that have been presented to universities, professional organizations, and in our seminars to create a priority based movement plan. This includes drills to be performed before training, on off days and any relevant educational content.

Our Philosophy

We believe that there should be a purpose and intent to every action. This belief bleeds into every aspect of our company, from the educational content we put out, to the equipment we produce and even to the athletes we coach.

1

Equip

If we don't have the tools needed to achieve something, we'll make them. This is why Kabuki Strength was born, out of a need for tools and methods that were lacking in the industry.

2

Educate

We never stop learning, no matter how much we know or how long we've lived. Our coaches are constantly furthering their education and broadening their skill set.

3

Coach

We coach people to become coaches, not just remain students. This philosophy of coaching ``coaches`` allows us to pass on the knowledge we have and further the cause.

4

Charity

We believe in doing the right thing. We believe in helping others, and in showing compassion and generosity. We want to make the world a better place through strength.

Get Your
Squat Face On

What do we mean? It means that we can make all the fancy equipment in the world, but unless you have the right attitude – there won’t be much to show for. We supply the tools and methods, you bring the attitude. Check out some of our apparel on the store, and if you wear it – make sure to get your squat face on!
