071024 WEDNESDAY “International Shootfighting Championships 1 review”

Jeremy Jones after winning his Mixed Martial Arts fight at the International Shootfighting Championships on October 20th

The Diablo CrossFit Crew came out in force. (More pictures and my experiences after the jump below).

*UPDATE MAY 2008** Our friends the Tracy’s Karate Studios (in Vallejo, Fairfield, Vacaville, and Davis California) will be hosting the first Shootfighting Summit on the west coast (second Shootfighting Summit ever actually). You can read my review of the first Shootfighting Summit here.

The Summit will include all the top Shoofighting coaches from around the world (Yoshiaki Fujiwara aka the ‘Godfather’ of MMA, Bart Vale, Yuki Ishikawa, Marcus Marinelli, Keith Curts, John Busto, Barry Polonitza, Robert Yard, and Mike Dancull to name a few). All parts of mixed martial arts (mma) will be covered in addition to kickboxing, submissions, and most importantly how to blend the two together to forge a fluid, supreme, complete fighter (not just one who has been pieced together from different parts that don’t necessarily fit together).

I am looking forward to this momentous event, and so should you! Reserve your spots right away space is limited. Info on the TracysKarateStudios.com events page. -jj**

0600 WOD: “Gunning For JJ”

Row 2000m

Post time to comments.

Compare your results with other rowers around the world: C2 Rankings

Jeremy posted his 2000m time on the DCF board recently, probably knowing that he’d motivate the rest of the DCF crew to give it a go. His DCF wall time was our target this morning. It’s funny how we’re easily motivated by the white board.

The C2 Rower is a beautifully-simple, awesome full-body-workout piece of equipment and the only cardio “machine” utilized by CrossFit. The C2 website has tons of information and tools to help you improve your row stroke and times.

Researcher: Vibrations help slim abdomen

“He says the mice developed 27 percent fewer abdominal fat cells and saw other benefits, including reduced triglycerides in the liver.”

Wow. . . I am almost speechless. I guess it is time for DCF to go out and buy a bunch of these . . .OR NOT! -jj

    Awesome work guys. There are rowers who spend months working to break 7:00 minutes, another testament to the cross- in crossfit.

    What was my time again? Wasn’t like 7:40 or something? Oh man, I have got to get back on the board!
