Women's Rape Prevention Program Resumes 09.08.12.



On Saturday, September 8 @ 9:00AM, our Women’s Rape Prevention Program resumes. Unlike any other of our Jiu-Jitsu classes, this program is geared specifically towards rape prevention and street self-defense. The curriculum contains techniques and strategies for all stages of a sexual assault attempt: 
- Being Identified
- Being approached and subdued
- Being controlled on the ground

These techniques and drills learned in class gives the students the coordination, instinctiveness and confidence necessary to apply an escaping technique on a resisting attacker of any size, standing or on the ground. They are easy to learn and rely on strategic grips, body positioning and proper timing.

Classes are a lot of fun and will keep you in great shape. A regular class consists of warm up with strengthening of the core (thighs, abs and lower back), stretching, standing and ground drills alone and with partners, and controlled resistance training (optional).  

At more advanced training stages, the resisting partner drills will train you to mentally work under pressure, teach you patience and the ability to remain calm even under the most stressful situations. This allows you to conserve energy, create and capitalize on an escape plan.
The program is available at a discounted monthly rate of $79.00 with a 12-month minimum agreement required. Other agreement options available.

Call us or set up a trial class here!

2012 Adults MMA Summer Camp Album


 This 7-week camp was our best adult camp yet. It was packed with students ranging from 15 to 54 year olds. We're proud of all those who were committed to the training from beginning to end, you've all learned a tremendous amount of skill.

Big props to those who stepped in the ring at the 7th and last week to try and apply their newly acquired skills to live practice. Congrats for challenging yourselves! Thanks everyone who attended, it was a great time!
