This class incorporates self-defense and fitness using techniques of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. The class will allow women the opportunity to train with other women without having to work with men. Beginners to the class will start by covering our intro to BJJ for women, but the class will continue after the initial 6 weeks to include more advanced techniques. For women interested in competing in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, this class will be beneficial as well.
Each class will incorporate Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) techniques to empower you, your daughter, sister, mother, or friend to defend themselves should the need arise. Brazilian jiu-jitsu is a martial arts and self-defense system based on various techniques to allow a smaller, weaker opponent overcome a stronger, larger opponent by use of leverage and body positioning. The class will focus on close quarters self-defense when escape is not an option, but we will discuss many strategies for self-defense that should hopefully keep each woman out of harm’s way.
While we will focus on self-defense, the class will also provide a workout and eventually, each student will be able to test their new skills in competition and will earn rank. We would like to prepare each student for a chance to learn valuable self-defense techniques and strategies while providing a great workout and camaraderie with friends in the class.
