TACTICAL LATIN AND THE POWER OF LANGUAGE
While the official number is not known, it is estimated that there are between 750,000 and 1,000,000 different words in the English language. And while one of those words is in fact “indescribable” it is a relatively safe assumption that we can find a word to describe every action, every area of interest, quantify or qualify a problem or give direction. That being said, it is imperative that we, being critics of ourselves, are using the BEST word or words for this task.
Latin is a dead language and the likelihood of it making a comeback is quite low. Yet in tactical circles, we have needlessly created a complex lexicon of our own that is known to few and of questionable simplicity.
For this article, we will define BEST as: fastest to learn, simplest to use, simplest to comprehend, safest to employ, most reliable under stress and easiest to articulate or defend to those outside our professional sphere. Let’s assess 4 areas where we most commonly go wrong.
FEATURED FIREARMS TRAINING
HIGH SPEED MARKSMANSHIP SERIES w/ JJ RACAZA
SEPTEMBER 29-30, 2018 | LAS VEGAS, NV
The time has come to say farewell to our Russell Rd. location and start the transition to our new, bigger, and better Sunset Rd. location! This is not the end, but the continuation of something amazing that we have built with this community! During this transition phase between now and the opening of the new facility, we have the following options available for our members.
CrossFit Henderson will be our temporary home starting Monday August 27th until we open the new location. The schedule is listed below.
6:00-7:00 AM WOD
2:30-3:30 PM WOD
10:00-11:00 AM WOD
4:00-5:00 PM WOD (Starts 4 September)
6:00-7:00 PM WOD
10:30 AM-12:30 PM Open Gym
In addition to this, we will be hosting WODs at Willows Park in Summerlin at 9:00 AM every Saturday beginning Saturday, 1 September.
While we don’t want to lose a single member of our community, we understand that choosing a gym and location revolves around your daily lives and schedules. With that being said, we endorse a CrossFit gym that has the same values and community aspect that we have at PFC. We have negotiated on your behalf with Kaizen CrossFit in Summerlin where they will give our members a week free to try it out and will honor our current unlimited rate for six months.
We’d like to say thank you to everyone who has been part of PFC CrossFit over the years. Without all of you we would not be where we are. We will be having more exciting news and updates coming soon!
