This article won't exactly tell you how to start with KBs, but it will give you an idea of what to focus on. Given we have a lot of new members, its time to revisit this concept.
Build your foundation first.
Get a DVD that will teach you good swing form. And then build on this foundation first. Don't even go to the the other moves like the Clean and Press or Turkish Get-Up. Definitely don't move on to the snatch until you get your swings down.
As this article says, sweat the small stuff. And for beginners, that means the swing. Really focus on all the movements and getting them correct.
Given that swings are counter intuitive to any other kind of weight lifting there's a lot to think about. Trying to tighten your glutes, brace your abs, pull your knees up, and keeping your shoulders packed all at the same time takes practice. For a movement that looks deceptively easy, it is not simple, as Mark Reifkind, Master RKC often says.
So, read this article. Then do some research on your own. Then, after arming yourself with some knowledge, practice and perfect your swings.
If you have any questions let me know.

Strength does not come from pysical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
