Self Defense Classes

Our self-defense classes are geared toward people who generally have no formal training in martial-arts, fighting, or self defense. Classes are designed to provide you with practical self-defense skills and the self confidence to protect yourself. The general idea of self-defense classes is learning how to handle threatening situations and reduce personal harm.

Classes are 60 minutes long and include a warm-up, specific technique practice with same-level partners, and supervised skill drills. For people who want to develop a higher level of self-defense skills we recommend taking our adult classes to learn Jiu Jitsu, Judo, and elements of other forms of martial arts.

Why Do Self Defense Classes?

Our Jiu-Jitsu self-defense classes, also known as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) self-defense classes, are specialized martial arts training programs. Our classes are designed to teach you how to defend yourself in real-life situations using the techniques and principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. These classes are typically designed to help students develop realistic self-defense skills, improve physical fitness, and boost confidence. Here's a description of what you can expect from such classes:

  1. Techniques and Principles:  Jiu-Jitsu self-defense classes emphasize the core techniques and principles of BJJ that can be applied to self-defense scenarios. These techniques include joint locks, chokes, throws, and ground control tactics.
  2. Realistic Scenarios:  Instructors create scenarios that simulate real-life self-defense situations, such as escaping from a headlock, defending against multiple attackers, and dealing with common street-level threats. This practical approach helps students learn how to respond effectively in high-pressure situations.
  3. Escapes and Control:  Students are taught how to escape from various holds, grabs, and positions, including those that occur in close-quarters situations. They also learn how to control and immobilize opponents if necessary, without causing unnecessary harm.
  4. Self-Defense Mindset:  In addition to physical techniques, self-defense classes often emphasize the importance of situational awareness, de-escalation, and understanding the legal and ethical aspects of self-defense.
  5. Hands-On Drills:  To ensure that students can apply what they've learned, classes often include sparring (rolling) sessions where they practice against resisting partners. These sessions help build confidence and improve reaction times.
  6. Physical Fitness:  Jiu-Jitsu self-defense classes can be physically demanding and are an excellent way to improve overall fitness. They can help enhance strength, flexibility, endurance, and cardiovascular health.
  7. Confidence and Self-Esteem:  As students become proficient in self-defense techniques, they often experience increased self-confidence and self-esteem, knowing they have the skills to protect themselves in dangerous situations.
  8. Self-Defense Awareness:  These classes also teach participants how to recognize potentially dangerous situations and how to make smart choices to avoid conflicts when possible.
  9. All Skill Levels:  Jiu-Jitsu self-defense classes are generally open to people of all ages and fitness levels. Instructors often tailor the instruction to meet the needs and abilities of their students.
  10. Community and Respect:  Jiu-Jitsu schools often emphasize a strong sense of community, respect for others, and a code of conduct. This helps create a positive and inclusive learning environment.
Overall, our Jiu-Jitsu self-defense classes provide valuable skills and knowledge that can prepare you to protect yourself and others. Through learning practical techniques and defense strategies that can be applied in real-world self-defense situations you will be better prepared for unexpected threatening situations.
