Heavier than last week.
65% x 5 x 3 (@22X2)
Post loads to comments.
Exposure 7 of 8
4-5 Rounds Not for Time:
100′ Sled Push, AHAP
4-8 Strict Pull-Ups
The sled push is down and back in either gym. The load should be heavy for you but should never stop moving (except for the turnaround). Add assistance/weight to the Pull-Ups as needed/able. Take the bike/row/jog at an easy pace.

Today marks CFSBK’s 11th anniversary. Happy birthday to us! In today’s video, Captain Osorio takes us back to the spot where it all began, which now looks very different. You can still see the “SNAFU” post that David refers to here
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at CFSBK: Register Now!
Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) is a full-contact grappling style that prioritizes strategy over brute force. Literally translating to the “soft” or “pliable” (jiu) “style” (jitsu), it is often thought of as the chess of martial arts. BJJ is, at its core, a self-defense system that employs positional advantages, joint locks, and chokes to defend against an opponent or attacker in an assertive and elegant manner. You needn’t be stronger than your opponent to subdue them, which makes BJJ one of the most practical and effective martial arts for all ages and sizes. There is no striking in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. This is a submission grappling art based on efficiency of movement, leverage, and timing.
The Level 1 Cycle is your jiu-jitsu starter pack. The course is geared towards anyone intrigued by BJJ but unsure where to begin, anyone who wants to become better acquainted with dynamic movement on the ground, and anyone who could use a review to jump back into it.
In Level 2, we will build on concepts and vocabulary of movement from the various positions with a larger portion of class-time dedicated to progressive resistance drilling, positional sparring, and straight sparring. If you have grappling experience from the past, you are welcome to jump into the Level 2 course!
These are both 4 week courses with 1 class per week.
Days & Times
Level 1 (November 11th – December 2nd): Sundays, 1:30pm – 3:00pm
Level 2 (September 30th – October 21st): Sundays, 3:00pm – 4:30pm
$100 (1 class per week)
