Jiu Jitsu Self-Defense Workshop
We recently taught a self-defense workshop to a group of young ladies from IRCO (Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization). After teaching the workshop we decided to film the techniques we showed so that people everywhere can have free access to simple and effective self-defense techniques. In this free course you will learn how to protect yourself both from a standing position as well as on the ground, and you will get to hear real-life experiences and self-defense advice from four women in our Jiu Jitsu program.
