Great Video About BJJ for Girls
It is an unfortunate truth that the statistics of child and teen abuse is growing at a frightening pace. 82% of the approximately 63,000 victims a year that are under the age of 18 are female. Females between the ages of 16 and 19 are four times as likely to be victims of assault. With statistics like that, we want to help prepare your daughters for the likelihood of an attack.
At 316 BJJ, we prepare ladies in two ways. The basics of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu teach self defense from a variety of positions, unlike Karate or Tae Kwon Do. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu works standing and on the ground positions. Our students also learn to escape, defend, and in many instances attack from bad positions. This allows your daughters to successfully defend themselves despite the situation.
Secondly, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu increases self confidence. As students begin to understand and appreciate their competence, they begin to carry themselves differently. By walking with confidence, many will avoid being attacked.
