There comes a time in everyones life when they are ready for a test – a test of their heart and soul.
A real test that takes you to your very core – your soul – and either spits you out or makes you into a new person.
SEALFIT Kokoro Camp is such a test. As the world’s premier training camp for forging mental toughness, an Unbeatable Mind and a warrior’s spirit, the camp is an intense crucible experience modeled off of the famous Navy SEAL Hell Week. The difference is that Kokoro is built to teach through experience, rather than try to make you into a quitter.
Kokoro Camp is designed for an individual to discover what is deep inside of them – to help individuals discover the power of their mind over their body, and their non-quitting spirit over their mind. The program is skillfully executed by a cadre of former SEALs who are SEALFIT certified coaches who understand human psychology better than most psychologists – especially as it pertains to the highs and lows of self discovery.

We have published updated Kokoro Camp Standards to help you understand just what you are getting into when you start your training for Kokoro. We don’t want there to be any confusion as to what we are doing here. This is not a “SEAL experience” alone…it is an event unlike any other that will test you to your core. We want to prevent injuries as well as people holding their team back. The work-load at Kokoro camp was described by an Iron Man athlete as “3 back to back Iron Men races, without rest.” Prepare well.
Prerequisites for a graduate certificate will be tested within the first few hours of the camp. They include:
- 50 push ups (40 for women), 50 sit-ups and 50 air squats in 2 minutes
- 10 dead hang pullups for men, 6 women
- 1 mile run in boots and utility pants on road in 9:30
- Body Armor (aka Murph) with 20# pack (15# for women): 1 hour and 10 minutes minimum
Endurance standards to guide your preparation (not tested for performance, but completion):
- 10 mile run in less than 1:20
- 20 mile ruck hike with load in less than 6 hours
Two event failure (PFT/Murph) will result in drop from course and refusal to perform any event will be considered a non verbal drop. Note we highly recommend that you ramp up your endurance and stamina training. A standard CrossFit or SOF Prep training regimen will not suffice. You should run a marathon or half Iron Man and spend considerable time rucking with load. Please contact us if you are not clear about the physical demands of this program. Should you fail to meet the standards and are rolled you will receive a certification of attendance, not a Certificate of Graduation with accompanying SEALFIT Black Shirt. You will be invited to train with your new knowledge and come back to challenge Kokoro Camp again in the future.
Black Shirt graduates have the potential to pursue intern positions and the SEALFIT Mastery program, as outlined on our web site.
Good luck! – Coach Divine

“Dear Commander Divine
I would like to express my gratitude and thankfulness for all the remarkable and soul enriching experience that I will carry into eternity with me.I am honored and privileged to have met and trained under your leadership . I will continue to grow and enrich my Kokoro Spirit for as long as I live.
“I am sitting at my desk working on some reports, but all I can think about is the amazing weekend that just took place. WOW! That was truly EPIC… I thought your lectures on Yoga, the Warrior Spirit and Leadership were outstanding.”
- Greg Amundson, CrossFit HQ and Amundson CrossFit, Kokoro Camp 12
“Those 48 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.”
- Trey Fischer, Kokoro Camp 9
“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.”
- Jeff, Kokoro Camp 13
