Self Defence

The Importance of Self-Defense and Why We Use Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)

Self-defense is not just about physical protection; it's an empowering tool that boosts confidence and promotes mental well-being. Understanding how to defend oneself in various situations is crucial in today’s world. At our core, we use Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) as the foundation for our self-defense training. BJJ is uniquely suited for self-defense for several reasons:

  • Effectiveness Against Larger Opponents

    BJJ techniques rely on leverage and skill rather than brute strength, making them effective against larger opponents.

  • Empowerment in Vulnerable Positions

    BJJ teaches how to turn vulnerable positions into advantageous ones, revealing hidden strength in worst-case scenarios.

  • It’s non-violent

    Most women’s self defence courses teach violent techniques – gouging eyes, kneeing groins, etc. These are valuable, but they assume we’re facing a stranger in an alley. Imagine the teenage girl who is with someone she wants to be there with, and that person crosses a line. If the only tools we’ve given her are to poke out eyes, have we given her any at all. Yes, she has the right to use them, but if she doesn’t feel comfortable maiming someone she knows, we’ve left her without options. Jiu-Jitsu is that option. It allows us to control our personal space without having to hurt the person.
