What Do You Do With Your Fitness?
If you have been around CrossFit Boston for some time you have probably noticed that CFBers like to use their fitness for more than just moving the barbell. We climb, kayak, race, row and everything in between.
When I started CrossFitting at CrossFit Atlanta in 2007 I did so not to be better at CrossFit but to be better at my sport, which at the time was Thai Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Last year CFB introduced a club grappling program which met a couple of times of week to review technique, spar and talk the philosophy/history of combat sport. The program even produced some competition champions, notably Jo “Big Show” Bernstein who placed 2nd in a local no-gi competition against some sturdy competition.
This fall we will be bringing the grappling program back to CFB. Days and times are TBD but to kick things off there will be a no-gi Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminar (BJJ is traditionally practiced in a heavy jacket) at CFB this Friday August 2nd from 6:30pm until 8ish…. Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of experience level.
