    Between the voice and the sunglasses, he's got a real Randy "Macho Man" Savage thing going on there.

    Blauer had some awesome stuff, but I think he got tired of being poor, thus pitching his material to Crossfitters. Listening to this video, there's moments where I say "yeah!" ... and then he delves into bullshit again.

    He keep invoking science, and I can't find any evidence of him being a scientist. That pisses me off.

    Anyone can apply and quote "science". That isn't a problem.

    I can't bring myself to click it, but does crossfit do self defense like it does teaching safety and proper form?

    I think this happens a lot in life. Something gets started with best intentions, and over time it becomes a brand. Then people use the brand to sell themselves -- make a name for themselves, develop audience, and gain market share. Once that happens, then the brand is marked -- it becomes a mixed bag. There can be good teachers in a school, and poor or bad teachers, both in the same school at the same time. It's the same for Funker and their video series. Some have been useful, others have been people wasting my time with their vanity.
