We will be offering Specialty Courses each Quarter that are available to general public, not just our members!  We want to help build a better community by offering quality functional courses.  We are excited to offer B.L.A.S.T. (Body Logic and Street Tactics)   This class has been designed to teach body awareness, self-defense and protective tactics that can help you protect yourself and others around you.

B.L.A.S.T. is a self-defense system based on escaping and surviving a confrontation.  It specializes in multiple assailants and weapon disarmament.  The goal of this 10-week, one-hour course is to arm practitioners with a set of tools they can use in life-threatening situations to protect themselves and the lives of those around them.  Because BLAST does not require strength or speed, it is low-impact and appropriate for all ages.  However, the subject material is grounded in reality and requires maturity; therefore the suggested age is 16+.

We have invited Meghan Illguth to instruct this course.  She was trained by industry leaders in advanced multiple threat neutralization and  control tactics.  In addition to being involved in the development of the PERSIST training program, Meghan owns and teaches a system of techniques that has been supplementing military and government agency training since 2010.  She is currently being utilized by the special operations community.  Meghan has traveled across the US teaching her techniques to martial artists, civilians, health care providers, law enforcement officers and armed forces personnel.  We are very fortunate to offer her services to our community of North Pole.

Building a stronger community, we want to offer this course at a very discounted rate!  The 10 week course will be free to members.  Non-members may sign-up for this course for only $100 or drop-in $15/class.  Members may bring a friend for $10/class drop-in.  Punch cards are also available.

The course will begin February 1rst at 10am at Crossfit North Pole, 2400 Dawson Rd, North Pole, AK.  Please call to sign-up in advance or for any further information you would need, 253-306-0516.  You may also text, email ([email protected]) or message on facebook or instagram (both under Crossfit North Pole)
