My offseason began two weeks ago and I am enjoying the chance to learn, to write (and finally finish the long-delayed final edits on my hammer throwing guidebook) and teach. Over the last few years I have done several seminars in Europe, but this year I will finally be coming stateside for a few events. Read about them below, or check out more details and registration information in the HMMR Media store. We also offer a discount to HMMR Media members on all events we organize.
In addition to those listed below, I am in the process of organizing one or two more seminars in December likely in Northern California and Washington. I’ll post details as they are finalized, but if you are interested in something in your area please contact me. While these seminars focus on training methods, I’m also available for presenting on technique or for hands-on clinics with coaches and athletes of all levels.
