WHAT IS BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an incredible self-defense system based on the principals of technique and leverage. Which allows the practitioners to defeat opponents of much greater size and strength. Therefore, you do not have to be big, fast, or young to be an effective fighter. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the only martial art that has been proven to be the single most effective system in the world and we have been doing so since 1925. It was made for real street fighting situations.
WHY BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU?
90% of all real street fights end up on the ground! Not knowing what to do in a combat situation could be a nightmare or worse yet, life threatening. We have it down to a science on how to win a fight, step by step. And we have been doing it successfully for the past 80 years. It is not our intention to prove we are the toughest people in the world, but rather to show we have something that works time and time again with devastating effectiveness.
What if you have to protect yourself against someone who is bigger, stronger, and hits harder than you do? If you want to exchange punches and kicks you may not stand a chance. What if they muscle you to the ground and start punching you? Bad news if you have never learned Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, which effectively addresses an aggressive assailant and ground grappling.
WOULD IT BENEFIT MY CHILD?
Absolutely! Jiu-Jitsu, which means “gentle art”, emphasizes the use of technique and leverage. Therefore, your child will not have to rely on size, strength, or speed. Also, learning to defend themselves and subdue their opponent in a safe and humane way without having to rely on kicks and punches, if not necessary. Your child will develop physical awareness of balance, reflexes, flexibility, and coordination. As well as building on the mental aspects of their personality such as self-esteem, discipline, confidence, compassion, and good work ethic. The classes are taught in a positive, fun, and friendly manner, so your child will enjoy learning the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
WHAT ABOUT BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU FOR WOMEN?
Jiu-Jitsu is ideal for women. For the simple fact that when most women are attacked they are taken to ground and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was created for the smaller, weaker person. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu effectively addresses the situation where you assailant is the aggressor. We can learn how and where to strike someone, but what if we fail under pressure or miss our opportunity because of a surprise attack? It is certainly not time to give up. With Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you do have a second chance!
