JIU-JITSU

See the beauty and the strength of what your body is capable of through Jiu-jitsu.

The word “Jiu-jitsu” derives from the Japanese “Jū” meaning “gentle” and “Jutsu” meaning “art”; essentially, Jiu-jitsu is the “gentle art”.

Jiu Jitsu is a predominantly ground-based martial art, using the principles of leverage, angles, pressure and timing, as well as knowledge of the human anatomy, in order to achieve a non-violent submission of one’s opponent. Unlike other martial arts that focus on strikes and/or kicks, Jiu-jitsu focuses on close-contact “grappling” holds and techniques, and the application of chokes and joint-manipulations.

SELF-DEFENSE 

Be your own badass. Our self-defense program includes a set of awareness and safety strategies, as well as a series of simple and highly effective physical self-defense techniques for the most common attack situations ranging from being pushed or pulled, cornered, grabbed by the wrist and hair, or pinned to the ground by a bigger and stronger attacker. Rather than relying on strength to defend against a stronger assailant, you will learn techniques of self-defense that include the principles of leverage, timing, and energy efficiency. None requires exceptional strength, speed, or coordination. Regardless of your age, size, strength or physical ability, you can learn the techniques of self-defense while gaining an increased sense of personal confidence and empowerment.

Ginastica Natural, developed over a period of 30 years, combines strength and conditioning through body weight exercises, stretching to increase flexibility, simulation of animal movements to enhance balance and body control, and meditative breathing exercises.
