We have three upcoming events to highlight.
Sayoc NorCal Self & Family Protection Seminar
Reminder: JP (Associate Instructor, Sayoc Kali), along with his instructor, Ricardo Kayanan (Master Rank instructor, Sayoc Kali), will be holding a self & family protection seminar this Saturday, October 23, from 11am to 1pm.
This seminar is tailored to those who have no previous martial arts experience! The goal is to provide each individual and/or couple with a better understanding of the reality… of protecting themselves, and a framework they can use to get on the SAME PAGE regarding safety.

CFO Makes it to Weekend Warrior Series Playoffs!
For those of you who’ve been following Team CFO’s progress in the Weekend Warrior Series, you’ll be pleased to know that our team qualified for the playoffs, which will take place on Saturday, October 30. The playoffs will take place at CrossFit San Carlos, and there will be three workouts done in a single-elimination format (meaning that if you lose, you’re out; if you win, you continue on to the next workout).
The first workout starts around 7:30am (yep, an early wake-up call, for sure). The event will run until around 4:30pm.
It would be awesome if we could get some home-town fans over there to support the team!
Second Annual Fran-Off
It’s that time again, Fran-Off time! For those of you who were a part of the first Fran-Off last year (either as participants or as fans), you’ll remember what a blast it was. Just like last year, Nabil will be hosting the competition at CrossFit Sweat Shop, right down the road from us in Walnut Creek. Fran-Off will go down on Saturday, November 13, beginning at 10am.
Fran-Off is a 2-person team competition where teams will go head-to-head in Fran (21-15-9 reps of thrusters and pull-ups). The winning team gets to split the $2,000 cash prize.
