At Dam Strong Gym Shrewsbury we are starting a new Self-Defence BJJ programme. This is because Dam Strong is a place where we pride ourselves on helping people to be strong in the mind and strong in the body. Sometimes things in life happen where we need to have the skills to defend ourselves.
So we are launching our Dam Strong Gym Self-Defence BJJ speciality programme. This is a safe environment for beginners to learn the skills of BJJ with a self-defence bias. So if the moment happens in life where you need those skills you will be able to defend yourself safely.
Also the increased confidence you have knowing you are able to defend yourself against a larger and stronger attacher is amazing.
What is BJJ?
BJJ is Brizillian Jiu Jitsu. The word “jiu jitsu” derives from the Japanese “Jū” meaning “gentle” and “Jutsu” meaning “art”; essentially, jiu jitsu is the “gentle art”.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a predominantly ground-based martial art, using the principles of leverage, angles, pressure and timing, as well as knowledge of the human anatomy, in order to achieve a non-violent submission of one’s opponent.
Unlike other martial arts that focus on strikes and/or kicks, BJJ focuses on close-contact “grappling” holds and techniques, and the application of chokes and joint-manipulations.
BJJ revolves around the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend him/herself against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent by using leverage and weight distribution, taking the fight to the ground and using a number of holds and submissions to defeat them.
BJJ training can be used for ‘sport grappling’ and self-defence situations. This is what we do at Dam Strong Gym, we use BJJ to help people with self-defence.
