Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a very innovative modern martial art and is accepted as an extremely effective form of self-defence. It teaches a smaller person how to defend against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique.
By the end of the week we hope all campers will have a greater appreciation and interest in the art of self-defence. A practical awareness of how to defend one’s self has been shown to increase a child’s self-esteem, confidence and discipline as well as developing coordination, balance and fitness.
