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.

Passion, Skill, ongoing Knowledge and Professional. To find qualities such as these at a Martial Arts School can be rare. To find them all in one Instructor is even rarer. Rob Eis and his Unbridled Martial Arts School have all of these. Rob’s Passion to his school, students, and his training are noticeable from the first time you meet him. He devotes a lot of his own free time to provide training to all of his students. Those who pay him and those he teaches due to his passion for his Art. He provides a great deal of useful knowledge for a minimal fee; he doesn’t waste your time with outdated training or tradition. His Skill is well documented, yet he is not overbearing or unapproachable to ask questions. He provides a full range of Martial Arts instruction with great skill. He continually seeks new training to incorporate into his teachings. His ongoing Knowledge lets his students and other Instructors know that he has an open mind and is always looking to improve. He is eager to learn and will try new material and not tie his hands to one way. This provides his students with a wide variety of information to constantly work with. Rob is a true Professional. He is a hard worker, a great self-promoter and an up standing citizen. Rob proves it’s not Quantity but Quality. He provides a safe, clean and fun training facility with energetic instruction. His students share in Rob’s energetic teaching and create a great atmosphere. I recommend Rob Eis and Unbridled Martial Arts to anyone looking for great Instruction, well-rounded training, a safe environment, and professionalism.
