MENS STREET DEFENSE
WHAT IS MENS STREET DEFENSE JIU-JITSU?
These classes are for those who want to be more confident if you are confronted with a threatening or challenging situation. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is comprised of more than 600 individual techniques, however studies have shown that in real fights only 36 techniques have been used more often, and with greater success, than all the other techniques combined. These are the techniques we are focusing on developing with our students on Wednesday evenings.
During these classes, you will quickly get some really effective tools for dealing with discomforting and violent situations. While the main training time for street defense is Wednesday night, all no-gi BJJ adult classes are based around effective street defense techniques. This is a unique class where we work exclusively with the physical and mental challenges that men have in physical confrontations. You get some really effective tools to deal with threatening and dangerous behavior.
PRINCIPLES OF OUR JIU-JITSU SCHOOL
HOW DOES IT WORK?
After a short time of regular attendance, you will learn self-defense that really works - even if you have never practiced martial arts or feel in bad shape. You will learn a lot about avoiding dangerous situations, about de-escalating confrontations, about setting boundaries and about how to fight when everything else has failed. You will also learn new things about yourself and about finding your inner tiger. After the course, you will feel safer and probably have a slightly more straight back and may even have gained a few pounds (because you will get a solid workout).
Most of the training is physical. We train self-defense that works in real life and that means we have to learn to perform it effectively, even when it is difficult and we are under stress. During the classes, there will be gradually more and more physical contact and resistance, and the training will become more realistic. The training is conducted under very controlled conditions and in a way so that everyone can participate. We alternate between theory and practice, so we occasionally get a little break from the physical training while we learn some theory.
