Women are getting assaulted at an alarming rate. Do not be another victim

Why women need Jiu-Jitsu.

If you turn on the news you will see horrifying stories of women being assaulted on a daily basis.

The fact is women are an easier target than men because of there perceived weakness. Cowards prey on people smaller and weaker than themselves.

Take a look at the horrifying video below.

However, there is a way to level the playing field and that way is Jiu-Jitsu!

Take a look at the video below to see how a woman with Jiu-Jitsu can handle a male who also trains Jiu-Jitsu (Imagine if the guy didn’t know Jiu-Jitsu).

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be and is a neutralizer that will give women the ability to defend themselves against people much larger.

Do not wait until it is too late. Start training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu today and make it a lifestyle for your entire family. It really can save your life and it will change your life for the better.

Besides the obvious self-defense benefits Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers women, it is also an amazing workout that will get you into great shape and keep you there.

Jiu-Jitsu is also so much fun and will give you an opportunity to meet new people and make some of the best friends you will ever have.

3 tips for beginners in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Starting Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can be a fun and exciting time but also very frustrating in the beginning. You will come to class with an open mind ready to learn but at the end of the day nothing will seem to click and you may even ask yourself why would I do this ?? That is all normal and everyone who does Jiu-Jitsu will experience this feeling at one point or another.

There are a few things you can do to help you have a smooth transition from Jiu-Jitsu newbie to actually feeling comfortable in any situation you will face on the mats. Let’s cover 3 things that will help you as a beginner in the amazing art/sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

  1. Be Patient and Set Realistic Goals – No matter big and strong or small and weak you may be, you will not be submitting and tapping out more experienced Jiu-Jitsu practitioners in the beginning. This can seem very frustrating at times especially when you learn an awesome new submission that you just KNOW you are are going to be tapping people out with left and right…. You see when your training partner has more experience than you do it will be hard to get them caught up in your “traps” and you will more than likely fall victim to one of their traps in the process. Do NOT let this frustrate you and understand that this all normal and part of the learning process. Just keep training keep learning and soon you will be the experienced Jiu-Jitsu person tapping out the new guy or girl !
  2. Avoid Information Overload – When you first start Jiu-Jitsu you will want an answer for every situation and will be looking online for any video or tip that you can find… this is ok but just avoid trying to learn so much at once and focus more of your time going to class and drilling on the mats. The only true way to get good at Jiu-Jitsu is mat time and proper drilling…. that is it… there is no secret technique will help you get better. You do need to know as much as possible but you need to drill and put mat time in the really make knowledge applicable.
  3. Be a good training partner – One thing I notice a lot of beginners do when they start to “roll” or “spar” is that they go 100% and try to prove themselves on the mat like it is a competition. Now I understand most beginners do not mean anything bad by this but rather just want to be accepted as a good “Jiu-Jitsu guy or girl” but if you do not slow down and try to apply the techniques that you have learned so far in class, you will be helping yourself or your training partner. I actually do not let brand new students roll right away until they at least have a good understanding of the most common positions in a grappling or ground fighting situation. I suggest you do the same at the start… try to understand what positions are best, how to protect yourself and escape from the bad situations and from there begin rolling lightly with a more experienced person until you get the swing of things.

The main thing is just NEVER GIVE UP … Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not easy but it can be the most rewarding thing in your life if you put the time, energy, focus and patience into your training. Talk to your instructor about setting goals and let him or her know what you are trying to get out of training. Enjoy the mats and train often… Never Quit

5 Reasons all kid’s should learn Jiu-Jitsu

5 Reasons all kid’s should learn Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers many benefits to children but we wanted to share our top 5 reasons all kid’s should learn Jiu-Jitsu!

  • Self Confidence – now many martial arts claim that your child will benefit from self confidence but they never really explain how or why. You Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is very different from your traditional Martial Arts because you actually use what you learn everyday against someone trying to stop you. You will not see a child screaming and breaking boards but rather engaging in a real life combat situation trying to wrestle their way into a dominate position or escape an uncomfortable or compromising position…. You see, when a child breaks a board or does a flashy move with no real resistance it gives them a false sense of confidence that does not really carry over into the real world and can actually be dangerous when the child realizes that the “karate” they learned can not really help them in a real situation. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gives a child REAL confidence and a realistic way to defend themselves without ever having to punch or kick another child.
  • Fitness – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will provide a fun and demanding cardiovascular workout for your child and they will LOVE doing it. The hardest part about keeping kid’s fit these days is getting them off of the computer or away from the video games. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the perfect outlet to get your child excited and looking forward to doing a fun fitness related activity.
  • Make New Friends – The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy is a place where your child will make lifetime friends and learn to respect everyone in a group with mixed cultures. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is something that most people start and continue doing for the rest of their life. You will see your child grow and learn with friends that they met in Jiu-Jitsu class and kept for a lifetime.
  • Provide your child with tangible goals – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will offer your child many fun and exciting incentives and give them the ability to earn rank, points and special awards. This environment of goal setting will teach your child how to set a goal and see the reward for doing the steps necessary for achieving that award )goal). This will carry over into many other areas of life such as academic and career related goals. If you live in Bethlehem or Allentown PA and want the best way to help your child acheive success bring them into Zombie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
  • Self Defense – Last but not least is they will learn REAL self defense. They will not learn flashy choreographed dances or board breaking moves… they will learn how to REALLY PROTECT themselves from bullies. It’s a fact that bullying is on the rise and the child that is least able to defend themselves or with the lowest self esteem is usually the victim. Do not let this happen to your child, give them the gift of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
