PRINCIPLES OF OUR JIU-JITSU SCHOOL
HOW DOES IT WORK?
In Fight Nation's women's only BJJ classes, 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 just a short time of regular attendance, you will feel safer and probably have a slightly more straight back and may even have lost 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.
One of the most important elements of our classes is the mental part of the training. You will learn to mobilize courage and strength to speak out, set boundaries and to defend yourself physically when you need it. This will enable you to stop an unpleasant or dangerous situation earlier, so it becomes less dangerous and easier to handle. You will also learn to act resolutely when necessary and not ‘freeze’ in the face of danger.
You will learn that boundary setting, de-escalation, and the power to act, which will benefit you directly in other parts of your life as well. It will lead to an improved confidence in situations such as relationships and at the workplace. You will not only become stronger physically, but to a great extent also mentally.
