Learn safety tips and self-defense moves from professional jiu jitsu instructors.
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.
