Since its inception, CrossFit has bastardized athletic training systems and repackaged them for sale to imbeciles. Foremost among these systems are the martial arts. In this CrossFit Self-Defense course video, an instructor with no military or combat experience deems working out to be a suitable substitute for martial arts training by likening the execution of various attacks to the performance of common exercises.
In part 1 of my CrossFit Self-Defense roast series (which is also picture-in-picture style to avoid content ID issues), I referred repeatedly to the teachings of bona fide self-defense expert, Bas Rutten. The subject matter expert I cited in part 2 was UFC Welterweight Champion and UFC 16 Welterweight Tournament Winner, Pat Miletich, who left a critical comment about this farcical course on CrossFit's Facebook page.
