The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - R.AGE -

GIRLS, safety is al­ways of the ut­most im­por­tance so if you want to learn more about how to keep your­self (and maybe oth­ers) safe, come over to So­laris Mont Kiara this Fri­day evening to learn some butt-kick­ing moves.

The jiu jitsu workshop, or­gan­ised by Phat Cul­ture and Lever­age Com­bat Academy, is part of the Be Your Own Hero­ine cam­paign which aims to em­power women with ad­e­quate knowl­edge to keep them­selves safe dur­ing times of dan­ger.

Al­though jiu jitsu may sound like a Ja­panese mar­tial arts, it is ac­tu­ally a Brazil­ian com­bat sport that pri­mar­ily fo­cuses on ground fight­ing. It looks a lit­tle like wrestling but there is more to the sport than just grap­pling your op­po­nent. Jiu jitsu is about be­ing alert all the time and us­ing moves to out­smart your at­tacker, which is cru­cial for ladies who travel alone.

Don’t worry about not hav­ing enough up­per body strength or feel that you’re not fit enough to learn jiu jitsu. This workshop is or­gan­ised mainly to im­part use­ful safety tips that the par­tic­i­pants could use in their daily rou­tines and also teach them a few slick moves that could prove handy dur­ing dan­ger­ous sit­u­a­tions.
