CrossFit Defense Course
Jun 8 @ 9:00 am – 5:30 pm

Tony Blauer of Tony Blauer & the S.P.E.A.R. System will be holding a CrossFit Defense Course on Saturday, June 8th @ CrossFit Central Downtown. We have so much respect for Tony, his team and what they teach people in their defense courses. This video gives you a glimpse into how effective and applicable this course is. Don’t miss this!!

“CrossFitters train for the unknown and unknowable with an understanding that what they do inside the box prepares them for anything the world throws at them outside of it. But elite fitness doesn’t guarantee personal safety. CrossFit requires a certain set of skills both physically and psychologically — So does self-defense.”

“If CrossFit is the study of human movement,” Blauer said, “CrossFit Defense is the study of human movement as it relates to violence, fear and aggression.” Like learning a proper clean or double-under, there are certain functional movements and processes, inherent to self-protection, that can help forge elite awareness and defensive/protective skills.”
