Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective, reality-based fighting systems in the world. Created by the Japanese Samurai, the basic premise of Jiu-Jitsu is that most fights end up on the ground. Therefore, Jiu-Jitsu is focused primarily on effective ground combat. The primary goal is to put an attacker or opponent into situations where joint manipulations can be applied and/or neck strangulations to force a submission.
History has proven that martial arts training can be a great opportunity for children to learn discipline, mental strength, focus, hard work, integrity, confidence, teamwork, and more. Ultimately, martial arts are about continuous self-improvement physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. In addition, the goal is also to bully-proof your child against bullies. Personally, Prof. Tala understands that the scars caused bullying can last many years and can destroy self-esteem and confidence.
