Who Want To Go Skiing or Snowboarding Now!

It might be the end of summer but with movies like "Come Find Us" who does not want to go skiing or snowboarding. Good things for kids like this, really shows how to push the limit and get you jazzed to get it done.

Keeping SunScreen On!

Finding a product that stays on and keeps you protected is hard, now SCAPE comes to the rescue.
In the words of Dr. Martens…
1. Formula is 5x More Waterproof, Sweatproof and Doesn’t Clog Pores “Traditionally, sunscreens use oil to achieve waterproofing.
We developed a polymer matrix that bonds to your skin to make it waterproof. This creates an ultra thin Gore-tex-like layer on the skin and to hold the suncreeen in place even if you sweat for a long time or are in the in water. Most importantly, it doesn’t block pores so you can still sweat.”
2. Top-of-the-Line UVA Protection
“SCAPE provides the highest level of UVA protection possible. Plus, the formula includes antioxidants that remove free radicals from skin for cellular protection.”
3. Stringent Unbiased Testing
“When sunscreen companies do waterproof testing, it’s usually 20 people in a pool for 80 minutes—no movement and no towel-off when they get out. Then SPF test is done. This has nothing to do with an athlete’s reality. So we designed a much more stringent test. We exposed our product to stricter conditions both on athletes and in the lab. Plus, we had an independent lab doing the testing as well—not just us.”
4. Athlete-Tested Outside the Lab
“Additionally, it was important that we tested our product in real life, so we teamed with volleyball players, surfers, endurance athletes, etc, for testing. That was a crucial part missing in product development with other companies. You can only test products so much in a lab—eventually you have to put it in a real-world application, and we did that.”

Feel good and be able to protect yourself. Subscribe to Crossfit.com and watch his amazing videos, even sign up for a class.

Blauer Tactical Systems (BTS) is one of the world's leading consulting companies specializing in the research and development of close quarter tactics & scenario-based training for law enforcement, military and professional self-defense instructors.
During the 1980's, BTS pioneered reality-based self-defense with their ground-breaking 'Panic Attack' drill, the design of the world's first functional scenario-based training suit and the first self-defense program based on psychology, physiology and kinesiology.
The S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ (Spontaneous Protection Enabling Accelerated Response) is a scientifically researched & medically reviewed personal defense measure that exploits the body’s natural responses to violence and danger. This survival mechanism, dubbed:Startle-Flinch Response has been scientifically integrated into a series of neuro-muscular drills that teaches individuals how to convert their instinctive reactions into protective and combative tactics.

HIGH GEAR™ is considered to be the world's most dynamic role-player gear because it allows trainers to engage in realistic and integrated scenarios in practically any environment. BTS has developed an analytic & systematic approach to scenario training by reverse-engineering real world confrontations. This program is called Ballistic Micro-fights™.
BTS is now a world-leader in the design of force-on-force training equipment, as well as program management for police defensive tactics, military combative trainingclose quarter combatives, andpersonal defense training. HIGH GEAR™, Ballistic Micro-fights™ and the S.P.E.A.R. SYSTEM™ are now used by many of the world's leading DT, Combatives and self-defense instructors to augment their personal defense skills.

Our focus, our mission and our path have not wavered since we began teaching real-world self-defense in 1979... we have been on the cutting-edge of reality-based training for the self-defense world ever since.
