Women Self Defense

Team Silva Jiu-Jitsu is now offering a self defense/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu course for women only.

Women Self Defense Workshop

This course is designed for practical self defense, using full force, on live attackers.

We will instruct the students in the use of various, strikes, takedowns, joint locks and escapes from Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. 
The emphasis of the course and ongoing instruction will be for the students to learn how to engage their legs into the fight as soon as possible. 
We stress this because using the legs in an integrated defense with the arms and head is the best way for a female defender to mitigate the upper body strength advantage of a male attacker.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is recognized throughout the world as one of the best methods of coordinated self defense against a larger, stronger opponent. 
Its methods provide the defender with the ability to manage the distance between attacker and defender so that strikes and holds on the defender are rendered less effective, this allows the defender to survive the initial attack and escape.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and other defensive methods used in this course are intimate close quarter combat. The practice of this type of live close combat training, trains the student in what it is like to go in and out of the “heightened fight or flight response” of a violent encounter and channel that fear into effective reactions using sound self defense techniques.
The practice of this type of combat over time enhances the students intuition and situational awareness which in turn allows the student to avoid areas, situations and encounters that predators count on for advantage.
The emphasis of this course will be on defending oneself against unarmed assault and acquaintance assault. We will not be teaching knife or gun “takeaways’ in a static slow motion fashion. Except for in very specific situations attempting to subdue an armed 
attacker is nearly suicidal and should be avoided at all costs. We will be using Gavin DeBeckers book The Gift of Fear as a reference for understanding different types of threats and the one situation when confronting an armed attacker is the best defense.

Classes are 2 hours Only six techniques should be used so that a lot of repetitive practice can be done.
