strength for life
When you say self defense most people think of karate or standing and striking. While that has a place, the truth is most altercations wind up on the ground. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specializes in this. Students learn important positions, sweeps, chokes, and submissions to control their opponent. All while on the ground and without having to use brute force.
When starting a martial art, students always have a goal. Most people think it's the next belt, and while that is a goal to achieve, there is so much more for BJJ students to strive for. Whether it's loosing weight, gaining a great knowledge of self defense, or testing your skills against another in competition, jiu-jitsu can give you both the challenges to face, and tools to overcome them.
