CROSSFIT STRIKING WORKSHOP APRIL 29TH The workshop is $349.00
The CrossFit Workshop: Striking is a single-day immersive experience that teaches participants how to increase overall fitness, core strength, rotational speed and power by incorporating striking drills into CrossFit workouts. Strikes are some of the most functional movements because punching and kicking with true power, speed and accuracy require people to utilize their entire body. This is why fighters are some of the most well-conditioned and powerful athletes in the world.
With this in mind, the Striking Workshop is designed to teach participants to incorporate basic mixed-martial-arts, boxing and self-protection striking concepts into workouts. The course also teaches attendees to program these skills into workouts for greater variance. All this is done in a non-contact format that focuses on proper technique by using shadow boxing, focus mitts, kick shields and a heavy bag.

This in-person course relies heavily on the principles of breathing, bracing, and body positions as described in Dr. Kelly Starrett’s book, Becoming a Supple Leopard, and the M|WOD 101 online course. Many coaches and athletes struggle to take some of the principles in the book or from the M|WOD 101 course and apply them to lifting with big loads. Many coaches and athletes also have difficulty understanding exactly where to look first when trying to solve a problem for an athlete and many times jump to different mobility exercises without first breaking down any issues in technique, set up, and bracing. Unfortunately, athletes many times are only concerned with finishing the task and not the quality of the task until it blows up in their face. Load is a very instructive tool and allows the coach to see errors as they develop that may not be apparent during bodyweight or lower weights while the athlete is warming up.
