Rape Prevention & Self-Defense
The truth is that most self-defense programs and martial arts classes teach "striking" without addressing ground self-defense, because they lack the knowledge in "proper ground reversals and escapes".
Q: What do you do if are thrown on the ground and attacked?
A: You need to fight from the ground up effectively. I can teach you.
Q: How will knowing how to strike help you in this life threatening situation?
A: There are few ways you can strike back being on the ground, but you will need to be in a "controlling/dominant position". The key is to always control the situation. I can show you this and much more.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), popularized in the United States by Royce Graciewith his performances in the Ultimate Fighting Championship, is arguably the most effective and realistic fighting system. It is the perfect self-defense for the smaller individuals, women, and children.
By addressing the fact that most real fights end on the ground, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers its participants the ability to defeat larger opponents through the application of various submission (chokes, arm and leg locks ) and throwing techniques.
Benefits of Learning Self-Defense
Knowing you can protect yourself is the ultimate security one can posses.
Group Training Sessions available, if you have a matted location or matted gym area.
In my quest for the best full-contact sport, the combination of Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the best. Through several competitions and challenging myself to a higher level I was able to defeat more experienced martial artists.
