Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is aÂ martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting.Â BJJ promotes the concept that a smaller weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and then application of joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.
Krav Maga is a close combat system created in the Israeli military, refined intoÂ an effective streetwise self defense system that is ideal for every participant, from parents wishing to protect their kids to nightclub bouncers toÂ elite military units. A true mixed martial art, Krav Maga is a striking system that focuses on efficiency and effectiveness through quick learning and honing instinctual response.
Don’t forget to join Danny as he runs the Firehouse Run 10k on November 1, 2015. You can also participate in the 5k family walk or run.
