Awareness and Avoidance
Often, we do not identify potentially dangerous situations until it is too late. Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaching curriculum, includes elements of basic safety that can help a woman recognize possible danger before it escalates into physical attack.
The techniques in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are designed to help any woman escape from her attacker, whether she is on her feet or on the ground. The techniques of are not based on strikes and kicks as are most other self-defense classes for women. Strikes and kicks offer very little chance for success against an assailant who is most likely going to be bigger, stronger and capable of hitting back. Furthermore, they are useless on the ground which is where the attacker will usually carry out his assault. The escape moves are based on leverage and technique and do not require strength, speed or coordination. They can therefore be used effectively by women of any age, size, strength or level of physical fitness.
The worst part of an attack situation is the feeling of total helplessness the victim experiences. Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teaching curriculum, prepares a woman physically with simple, effective techniques for an escape, but also psychologically and emotionally by enabling her to maintain the presence of mind necessary to recognize or create an opportunity to get away.
Fundamental Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Curriculum
Skills are taught and drilled in a relaxed atmosphere until each student is able to execute the techniques. At the end of each class, students are given the opportunity to apply those learned skills against a live opponent. The students learn how to overcome the panic response, practice strategy and perform the techniques in a simulated reality situation.
