what is jiu jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art based on ground fighting, focused on the skill of controlling one's opponent through techniques that leverage an understanding of how the body works, instead of strength. Jiu Jitsu teaches its students how to appropriately control any combative situation, even against bigger opponents. Lessons include learning how to escape when an opponent is on top, how to use take downs, how to pin an opponent, and how to use submissions when necessary. It is regarded as the most effective martial art in the world for street style self defense. Because of it's demand for commitment, patience, and understanding, it is also regarded as a strong source of character development for people of all ages. Jiu jitsu helps a student develop body awareness, physical coordination, discipline, and a degree of mental and physical toughness.
"Since my daughter has been in the program I've noticed an increase in her physical fitness, self-confidence, and assertiveness. Classes are very engaging, combining a mixture of community building, self-defense, situational awareness, and decision making. Gemma's pleasant demeanour along with the group activities she organizes helps all the students feel welcome and provides opportunities to build quality friendships.This is phenomenal program. Priceless!"
