In Honor of Navy Lt. Mike Murphy.....



Lt. Michael Murphy (Taylor Kitsch): "Marcus, you are never out of the fight."

Lone Survivor (2013) Directed by Peter Berg (Based on the true story)


Every year on Memorial Day weekend, CrossFitters across the world perform the Hero workout, ‘Murph’. It is a workout that has become synonymous with CrossFit, not just for its brutal toughness, but for what it represents. ‘Murph’ is not simply another workout we do in a class to increase our fitness before moving on to whatever else we have going on in the day. It is a workout designed to honor and remember the men and women of the armed forces that have lost their lives in defense of our freedom. And as is the case with every Hero workout, it has a story of courage and sacrifice behind it.
‘Murph’ is named after Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy, who was killed in action in Afghanistan June 28th, 2005.

"Negotiation: As Taught By The Patriot...."


Our topic today is “Negotiation” and the film segment is from “The Patriot” a movie produced in 2000 which depicts the story of an American Colonist, Benjamin Martin, played by Mel Gibson, who was a volunteer officer for the revolutionary army. He leads a band of local South Carolina militia against the British forces of General Cornwallis, played brilliantly by Tom Wilkinson. In this scene, Benjamin Martin is taking a great risk to negotiate directly with his enemy, General Cornwallis, for the release of his men being interned as prisoners of war. In an earlier militia raid, Benjamin had acquired a wagon full of personal possessions and effects of the General along with two Great Danes, that were given to General Cornwallis by King George himself. Benjamin knew could use them in trade for his imprisoned militia soldiers. We join them as the negotiation for the release of the militia prisoners commences.
