- Strength – The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force – through Circular Strength Training with Meel & Sang and calisthenics on Shena.
- Stamina – The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy – through programmed progressions utilising leveraged body weight & weight resistance exercises.
- Flexibility – The ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint – through dynamic flexibility exercises with and without calisthenics and Circular Strength Training & weight resistance training using clubs in joint specific full range of motion routines.
- Power - The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time – through weight resistance exercises using Sang, Meel and Shena.
- Speed – The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement – through dynamic resistance training with Meel, body weight agility training and successively varied tempo used within the exercise programming.
- Cardiovascular/respiratory endurance – The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen – through kicking and stomping, folk-dance, gymnastics & wrestling inspired inspired aerobic style exercises.
- Coordination – The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement – through use of several progressive variations and techniques using body weight and Meel.
- Agility – The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another – through use of several progressive variations and techniques inspired from wrestling and martial arts training using own body weight as well as Shena and Meel.
- Balance – The ability to control the placement of the body’s center of gravity in relation to its support base – through Samaa whirling and multi-planar exercises performed with the Meel, Shena and Sang.
- Accuracy – The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity – through the synchronous and asynchronous use and exercise with Meel and Sang in various planes of movement.
- Alertness - the state of paying close and continuous attention, being watchful and prompt and being quick to perceive and act – through the circular nature, rapidly changing variations and transitions within the movement range.
- Concentration - i.e. attentional control – through Samaa whirling and synchronous multi-planar movement patterns, exercises and variations with Meel, Sang and Shena.
- Rhythm - the timing of movement in the human body – through dance like movements throughout the various exercises within the program performed to percussion music.
- Improved proprioception – the sense of the body's position in time and space in relation to limbs and other objects – through the use of body-weight, Meel and Sang in circular multi-planar, synchronous and asynchronous movement patterns exercises and variations.
- Enhanced motor learning – the ability to adopt and learn to move in new coordinates – through circular, multi-planar, synchronous and asynchronous movement patterns within the system.
