Patreon SPECIAL OFFER and overview

It’s been a while since my last Patreon update, so here’s another one for August through October. I also have a special offer which I think you might enjoy. I’ll explain that first:

Sinterklaas is a tradition here in Belgium, similar to Santa Claus. It’s mostly geared towards children, but that doesn’t stop many adults from adhering to it as well. In short, if you’ve been good during the year, you receive a gift from a saintly figure. If you’ve been bad, you get spanked by his companion.

All my Patrons have been pretty awesome, so I felt like giving them something and I’m extending this offer to everybody who joins us:

All my current Patrons and  all who join before December 7th 6PM CET, will receive a 60+ min. video on stretching and mobility for martial arts and self-defense.

The video covers my personal  full-body stretching routine, geared toward injury prevention and countering the side effects of  intensive martial arts training. I’ll explain some of the basic principles for increasing flexibility and mobility, as well as show a large number of exercises that you rarely learn in martial arts classes. These are the ones I, as a personal trainer, use with my clients every day, so they are all functional and effective.

It doesn’t matter at which level you join, everybody gets the video, as long as you do so before the deadline.

This is a one-time offer. On December 7th, it ends and doesn’t come back.

Another benefit you can get if you’re fast, is this:

There are 10 spots left to become one of the Founding Fifty, which offers special perks for as long as you are a Patron.  Once we hit 50 Patrons, that benefit closes forever.

Sinterklaas, ready to rumble…

My Patreon page is in essence a membership site where I post unique content. There is now over 31 hours of unique video content available and this library grows by about 75 minutes every month.  This excludes the monthly 1-hour Livestream hangout we do in our private Facebook group. Those videos are available to re-watch as soon as we end the livestream. You get full access immediately after joining, so get a cup of coffee and dive in. :-)

Here’s an overview of all the posts from August, September and also October.  Just scroll down the page to see everything.

For a quick visual representation, here are all the videos per category. Click on the text link or the image to see all the videos in each category:

Patreon Overview for May, June and July 2018

I slacked off a bit on these Patreon updates, so here’s another big one for May, June and July.

My Patreon page has become quite the video library: in total, there is almost 25 hours of unique video content available and this library grows by about 75 minutes every month.  This excludes the monthly 1-hour Livestream hangout we do in our private Facebook group. Those videos are available to watch again too as soon as we end the livestream. New Patrons have told me they have a lot of catching up to do, which is the best kind of problem I can create for them: loads and loads of content without, no extra charge. :-)

I’ve also experimented a bit with long-form discussions on specific topics:

So there’s a lot happening over on Patreon and some of it was a huge surprise for me: somebody sent me a 4K digital camera as a gift so I could improve the quality of my videos and pictures. That was completely unexpected and I’m looking into how I can make the best use for it, including making 4k instructional videos.

Here’s an overview of all the rewards of the last few months; just scroll down all the posts:

To make it a bit clearer at a glance, here below are the topics covered in the videos. This excludes the bonus videos, which you can find here.

April was a hectic month for me, but I managed to get all the rewards done and added a few bonus videos for all reward tiers too. We also just welcomed the 35th Patron, Michael, which leaves only 15 spots for the “Founding Fifty” who will each get an individualized video.
