The third unique environment you want to have command over is combat (defense and control of an aggressor). Humans doing violence to other humans has been a part of our reality forever. And it will always be. You were born a predator, and then socialized to pretend you are not. CrossFit Missoula’s self-protection program helps connect you to your predator self. The part of you that will protect you when attacked, the part of you that will fight to survive.
There are many good authors and books out there on the subject of violence and self-protection, but two that we put directly in the hands of our new students are:
Gavin De Becker’s “Gift of Fear” and either Tim Larkin’s “Survive the Unthinkable: A Total Guide to Women’s Self Protection” or “How to Survive the Most Critical 5 Seconds of Your Life”
