El 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.
The 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:
