Members & guests–free. Registration deadline: October 15.
Come and join us for a free self defense class! Learn a new skill, have fun, and exercise your body and mind. The Brazil-021 Self Defense Program combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum starting with the foundations of Jiu-Jitsu, such as balance, base, break falls, simple self defense tips and escape situations. As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, BJJ is a perfect fit for anyone interested in learning how to protect themselves. The class format will include a brief presentation with Jiu-Jitsu moves; warm up using moves that will be applied to the class; balance and base techniques; and self defense moves. Participants of this event will have the opportunity to receive a discounted rate for an upcoming 6-week self-defense program from October 31-December 5.
