You’ll dive deep into your purpose and share it with your Crucible teammates, providing a deep accountability among your peers as you learn to help each other fulfill your personal missions.
And you’ll discover tips and secrets for maximizing your strength and endurance for the various challenges you’ll encounter in KOKORO like the Log PT, the Murph workouts and passing your Physical Standards Test (PST).
The KOKORO Crucible
KOKORO is the ultimate crucible experience.
After you experience KOKORO, you will have a deep understanding of this truth…
There is life before, and then there is life after KOKORO.
During this one-of-a-kind crucible experience, our elite KOKORO coaches – including active and retired Navy SEALs – will train you to overcome any obstacle, tame your mind, and completely eradicate fear.
Building on what you learn and experience from other 20X crucible events, KOKORO is a major milestone in your journey to evolve to your fullest potential as a human being, and to maximize performance – all in, all the time!
You’ll ascend to the summit of Five Mountains of physical, mental, emotional, intuitional and spiritual wholeness with this life-changing event. It will transform every aspect of your being.
Civilian leaders, both men and women, as well as military special operations candidates, train side by side in this crucible. Each trainee is seeking to tap into strength and resolve that is 20X (twenty times) what they had previously thought accessible.
Trainees are held to strict performance standards just like a Navy SEAL candidate. Here are the standards:
PST – You will be tested for maximum reps and you MUST reach the following minimum standards in a semi-fatigued state:
- 50 push-ups (40 for women): 2 minutes
- 50 sit-ups (40 for women): 2 minutes
- 50 air squats (40 for women): 2 minutes
- 10 dead hang pull-ups (6 for women)
- 1 mile run in boots and utility pants: 9.5 minutes
In addition to the PST you will be physically tested on how fast you can do MURPH. There is a 75 minute time cap.
MURPH (in boots with weighted ruck ~20# men, ~10# women. You can partition the pullups, push ups, and squats in 20 rounds of 5 pull ups, 10 push ups, and 15 squats):
- 1 mile run
- 100 pullups
- 200 pushups
- 300 air squats
- 1 mile run
Medical Standard: In good medical health with a physical within one year of the event. Any heart condition is a disqualifier.
Character Standard: Prove to be a good teammate. We reserve the right to ask you to leave if you are not.
-Trey Fischer, KOKORO Camp 9
"Those 50 hours were perhaps some of the most grueling, yet rewarding I have ever encountered in my life. As a marathon runner and a competitive athlete everything now seems like a cake walk in comparison…I now feel I have the confidence to get through BUD/s, and with the experiences I faced in camp I can take it with me to Coronado and use it so I can help not only myself but my teammates."
-Jeff, KOKORO Camp 13
"You’ve created an amazing life experience and I’m honored and grateful to have had the opportunity to live it. I draw on the experience every day in so many aspects of my life —in my thinking and reflection, relationships, training, teaching and coaching, pro-action/action/reaction, business, etc. While I’ve completed some relatively sizable endurance events in the past…none of those experiences comes even close the holistic takeaway from Kokoro Camp. Not even close."
"I am not the same person after Kokoro. The experiences I had during Kokoro 29 have completely and permanently changed me in very powerful ways – for the better. I am not the same person I once was and I’m proud to say I have been forged into a stronger man. Hooyah!"
-Coulter Turchin, KOKORO 30 Matras
"There are decisions in life that really define a person. When my Kokoro coach first told me that I was not allowed to leave; I was upset. I was thinking who is this guy, and why won’t he let me quit. When he told me you will thank me later I thought no way. At the end of camp I realized he was absolutely right. I cannot put into words how grateful I am that he made me stick it out. It was a lesson that I will keep my entire life. It taught me how to keep on pushing when you are working in a team, and how important it is to be there for your team. It taught me that in life you can not quit no matter how hard life gets. You just need to keep on fighting and putting one foot in front of the other. No one knows what is going to happen in the future, but if you give your all you will be successful. That is the best lesson anyone can learn. Thank you so much!"
-McCall Tomeny, KOKORO 29
"Preparing for and completing Kokoro camp was the best thing to ever happen to me. I was able to learn more about myself this summer than some people may ever learn about themselves in a lifetime. It has not only made me a better leader for my teammates, but a better leader of my own life. I find myself making better and more and confident decisions. I’m not as easily flustered as I was before. Each day of my life I use something I learned at Kokoro to my advantage. My coach has told that I “no longer run from challenges, but rather run straight at them. I strongly encourage anyone who is thinking of doing Kokoro to just go for it. It will change your life and teach you things about yourself that you may not be able to imagine. I now crave life’s challenges and look to push myself outside of my comfort zone. Like I tell everyone who has asked me about Kokoro: If I can make it through, so can you."
