The Striking Specialty Course teaches participants how to increase overall fitness, core strength, and rotational speed and power by incorporating striking drills into CrossFit workouts. Striking movements are some of the most functional core movements because punching and kicking with true power, speed and accuracy require people to utilize their entire body. This is why fighters are some of the most well conditioned and powerful athletes in the world.
