What would you do if you were walking to your car and heard a noise behind you? Then in an instant you feel an arm around your neck pulling you back. Can you escape this hold? Consider another scenario: You are on your back and someone is on top of your chest holding you down or they are in front of your knees. Can you create the space to stand up and run? Do you know how to go on the offensive and submit the person on top of you?
Elite MMA offers women’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes which will teach you how to handle these situations. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, also called the “gentle art,” emphasizes leverage, balance and technique. It allows a smaller individual to defend against a larger, stronger opponent. We break down each scenario into rudimentary techniques, teaching students how to connect these lessons. Our students are empowered to defend themselves through fluid movements. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey, taking protective measures helped 60% of women in an attack situation. Our instructors and fellow students orchestrate a safe, friendly and fun environment where women can learn to defend themselves. The dynamics of group learning are utilized so that the anxiety of not knowing what to do is replaced with “I am going to do that.”
