Feedback form is now closed.
The Introduction to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu presentation will include a brief history of this non-striking martial art, some fun hands-on training and an explanation on how BJJ can be incorporated into different Phys Ed programs. We will highlight how superior body positioning and the application of leverage can negate athleticism and strength allowing anyone to learn the skills necessary for efficient self-defense and sport Jiu-Jitsu. Having an opportunity to experience a variety of techniques will help session attendees understand how fun Jiu-Jitsu is as well as how easily a Jiu-Jitsu unit can be incorporated into any physical education program. The techniques are easily adaptable to suit learners of different ages and fitness levels. Attendees will receive a contact list for black belt Jiu-Jitsu instructors that can be brought in to guest instruct a Jiu-Jitsu unit at their school.
