NSK Throwdown

We at S.C.A. Fortis are very happy that we’ll be organizing the FIRST Dutch Student championship; the NSK Throwdown! This fall we hope to come together and have a friendly, fun and fearsome day of competition, assessable to all types of athletes, from beginner to experienced. The NSK Throwdown is a buddy tournament, so find yourself a buddy and sign up!

The NSK Throwdown will take place on Friday September 3rd in the Brabant hallen in Den Bosch. You can subscribe for the following divisions:

Scaled (M/M & F/F)

You have never done a competition before at any level. You are new to the Olympic lifts, and can’t do kipping pull-ups yet. Scaled WODs will include for example single unders, ring rows, knee raises and a workout weight up to 40/25 kg for Olympic lifting.

Advanced ( M/M & F/F)

You have more experience than a regular scaled competitor. You know the Olympic lifts, and can for example do kipping pull-ups. Advanced WODs will include elements such as double unders*, pull-ups, toes to bar, and a workout weight of 60/40 kg for Olympic lifts, but those WODs will not include advanced gymnastics such as muscle ups or HSPU.

*= If you are not able to do DU, you are allowed to do SU (number of reps times 3).
