“I feel like a badass. I feel strong and empowered as an individual. It helps me not lose me. It helps me de-stress. It keeps me balanced. When I am balanced and not stressed, I am a more patient person. When I am more patient, I see the world in a different light. I am more fun to be around. It is easier to have an optimistic point of view. To see the good, the light and the love in the world. And those are just the positives that have happened to my mind and outlook! My body feels better too. I have noticed increased mobility in my shoulders and my hips. My wrists and forearms are stronger. My legs are stronger. My shoulders are stronger. My core is stronger. My balance is better.

“After completing a Steel Mace certification through Onnit I felt like I needed/wanted to take my mace practice further. Leo had been one of my coaches at my certification and I really liked his teaching style so I knew taking his Steel Mace Flow level 1 course would help me learn how to move forward with my mace practice.
I was a little intimidated and wasn't quite sure what to expect but I was happy to find out that everything was broken down really simply and was easy to follow and progress.
My biggest takeaways were finding new ways to move and feeling empowered to try things I never thought I'd be able to do.
If you want to learn how to be an overall better mover and on top of that learn how to move with a mace, SMF is a must! You will feel strong, graceful and empowered!Fallon P.Certified Steel Mace Flow L1 Coach
SMF is truly a gift! Thank you Leo and Serena! ”
“I love that Steel Mace Flow’s increased focus on using healthy physical movements to increase one’s mental, emotional, and spiritual health continues to cultivate a practice and community of like-minded individuals striving to be better. Not just pushing each other to grow, but pulling each other along as everyone continuously influences and inspires each other with their continued actions.Giancarlo C.Certified Steel Mace Flow Coach
I would undoubtedly recommend Steel Mace Flow to others. I have experienced first hand how life changing it can be for someone. It makes fitness fun again as the endless amounts of movements and transitions always keep it fresh and invigorating. Then there’s actual physical benefits that come along while having fun like increased strength, agility, balance, and coordination. And I still haven’t gotten to the mental and emotional benefits! Adding meaning to the movements and flows while having space to explore those meanings for oneself, allows one to self-reflect, channel emotions more clearly, and in essence, Put One’s Growth Into Action.
Steel Mace Flow’s origin began nearly 6 years ago in the garage of Leo Urquides’ home in Albuquerque New Mexico. Switch Squats,360s, an undeniable passion for the Steel Mace, and the belief he had in himself, led Leo to create the “prototype” of SMF; Mace Movement.
After experiencing personal hardship, Leo was left with only his first Steel Mace Ryu, and a car full of clothes. Being left with next to nothing let to the creation of something that would not only change Leo’s life, but the lives of people all over the world. What started as a way out of depression and pain for one, now is an established movement practice and education system that welcomes all.
Leo currently resides in Austin Texas, where he can be found sipping on Strong Coffee, and hanging out with his French Bulldog Butter Savage. Leo spends his days flowing at Onnit Gym ATX and continues to be a trailblazing leader that guides others toward freedom through Steel Mace Flow.
Welcome to the Steel Mace Flow Level 1 Certification Savages,
The primary intention of this certification is to provide you with a thorough education on how to effectively perform the steps and movements of SMF™️, successfully coach others through the program, and how to use the Flow Builder System and incorporate it into your fitness regimen.
During the length of this certification, we will emphasize the use of structure-specific to SMF™️, demonstrate and explain the benefits of total body engagement, with and without the mace in hands, as well as the application of hand transitions and mace sequencing to perform smooth dynamic and effective transitions. By the end of this Level One Certification, you will be able to perform and instruct others on the Level 1 Content in addition to gaining a deeper understanding of why SMF™️ is beneficiary to all skill levels of fitness and the results that can be anticipated depending on the degree of application towards the program.
The inspiration for the Level One Certification comes from our love for the mace and recognizing the need to build a structural and sound platform to educate, strengthen and empower those who flow so that they receive the education and support they deserve on top of instilling the basic movement patterns and conditioning it takes in order to advance to Level Two certification.
The SMF™️ team does not take credit for inventing any of the structures, movements or the concept of Flow State in this Level 1 Certification. The use of these movements and the mace itself have been utilized in many different practices for many years. While there are visual similarities, the specific SMF™️ elements and the way we apply and teach are different. The creation of this certification comes from the combination of Leo’s background in martial arts and his education in the fitness industry.
We encourage you to utilize the knowledge provided to the fullest extent and make it “your own.” We look forward to seeing your work and your application of structure, safety, and strength. You will always find a safe space for creativity and growth within “The Savage.”
