Self Defense Classes in Newport News, VA

Self-defense is becoming an important concern in Newport News, VA and around the world.  If you walk to work or leave work at late hours, walking alone can be scary.  Walking to your car in a dark parking lot may send chills down your spine.  If you are of smaller stature, you may think that keeping yourself safe is impossible.

So, what can you do?  Learn self-defense.  Call Breakaway Jiu Jitsu in Newport News, Virginia, to set up a time to come to a free class.  At Breakaway, our skilled instructors teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), a grappling sport that is becoming more popular for several reasons.  BJJ can be learned for pure sport or for exercise and health purposes but is also a very useful skill for self-defense purposes.

No matter your size or gender, BJJ is a technique that leverages you into a more favorable position to prevent an attacker from getting the best of you.  Our self-defense classes teach grappling techniques.  Grappling is the ability to use your body to take your opponent (or attacker) to the ground where you have more control over the situation.

The moves you will learn to take your opponent to the ground, will give you the upper hand, even if that person is bigger than you.  BJJ not only moves the fight to the ground but allows you to have free arms or legs to continue protecting yourself while subduing your opponent.  It will give you a chance to get away or to hold them down until more help can arrive.

BJJ self-defense classes can make the walk to your car less nerve-racking.

Knowing that you could protect yourself in the event of an unthinkable situation may be the best motivation for learning BJJ, but eventually, you may find that your clothes are fitting looser or better, and you may also find that you have made some fantastic new friends.  The BJJ crew is a unique group of people that could round out your social circle in ways you could never have imagined.
