Spring Belt Promotions

2016Belt Promotionedhjiujitsu (1)

Spring is a  time of change. El Dorado Hills Brazilian Jiu Jitsu will be hosting the 2016 Spring Belt Promotions on Tuesday, March 1st.

Belt promotions are done differently at each school, in EDH we celebrate the occasion by saying a few things about each student when they change belts. Many students overcome many different obstacles and triumphs to earn their belt and the ceremony is an appropriate occasion to share each story.

Along with a new belt comes new challenges. These challenges can only be overcome with the training of a team of people that are willing to help one another. As people change their belts, it’s great to see their friends, training partners, and family who were there with them supporting their training. We hope to see everyone on Tuesday night in their best gi!

Ladies Only Self Defense Class in El Dorado Hills

_MG_7286El Dorado Hills Brazilian Jiu Jitsu hosted it’s third Ladies Only Self Defense Jiu Jitsu Class on Sunday, July 19th. The class was a free community class for those in the El Dorado Hills, Folsom, Cameron Park and in general the greater Sacramento area.

_MG_7304The group that gathered came from various backgrounds of having 5 years of jiujitsu experience to those who knew nothing about jiujitsu. We had participants from the age of 10 all the way to 48.

The class focused on practicing fundamental movements in jiu-jitsu and learning how to apply those movements in self-defense situations. In addition to simply practicing, the class ended with a simulation exercise to put the technique into application. The ladies were challenged to use the technique and escape while held down by someone with full resistance.

The class was a healthy mixture of learning about self defense jiujitsu, having fun through movement, and becoming more aware of different self defense situations. In discussion we talked about the other essential aspects of self-defense as well; dietary self defense, environmental self defense, mental self defense, and verbal self defense. Here are a few review written by our participants after the class: Screen shot 2015-07-20 at 10.28.48 AM Screen shot 2015-07-20 at 10.29.20 AM
