Women's Self Defense Workshop-September 1, 2018

Every Year Pacific Top Team Brazillian Jiu Jitsu in Corona host a free community outreach event for Women in our community with a Women’s Self Defense Workshop!

On Saturday, September 1, 2018 we had the mats full of women who took the time out of their Saturday to invest in themselves and learn valuable self defense techniques. Equipping yourself with the skills that you need to possibly save your life is something every female out there should have. It’s unfortunate that women in general are the target of so many crimes, but no women should feel helpless as a victim.

The 2 hour workshop focused on strategies to carry yourself in a confident manner, assess situations for level of danger and techniques to break grips and control situations including two very effective chokes that would put your attacker unconscious in seconds.

Coach Kim, a purple belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is our Head Woman’s Instructor at Pacific Top Team in Corona hosted the event and is passionate about equipping young girls and females with the skills they need to protect themselves if the need ever arised. From Coach Kim, “I spent most of her life walking around scared and feeling helpless if I was ever attacked. Now I feel confident that if anything were ever to happen I would be able to fight for my life. My only regret is that I didn’t learn these skills earlier in life! I really encourage every woman to invest in themselves and learn self defense skills!”

The Basics Of Judo

The martial art style Judo can mean a lot of things to different people.  In reality, it is a fun and exciting sport, an art, a discipline, an activity, a way to protect yourself, and quite simply a way of life.  Although you may hear many different meanings, the word Judo actually means all of the above and several more.

Founded back in 1882

Original founded back in 1882, Judo comes from the feudal Japan fighting system.  Upon founding, Judo was a refinement of the martial art jujutsu.  Jujutsu is one of the oldest martial arts styles, dating back hundreds of years.  

Judo made the biggest impact in 1964 when it was first introduced into the Olympic Games.  Now, it is practiced by millions of people all across the world.  Judo can help students stay in shape, excel in all areas of competition, stay protected with self defense, and several other things.  For a majority of students, Judo is practiced just for fun.  Although it starts out as fun for many, it quickly turns into a way of life, a burning passion if you will.

Similar to other martial arts styles, Judo has rules that ensure the safety of those competing in the competitions.  Students of Judo who are looking to test their skills will enjoy the competition levels, which range from club meets to national tournaments, and on up to the well known and best level of competition - the Olympic Games.

Judo is known best for its amazing throw techniques.  What many arent aware of, is the fact that Judo is more than just throws.  It also involves grappling on the ground, controlling holds, arm locks, leg locks, and even choking techniques.  Judo teaches all aspects of self defense, from a grapplers standpoint.

Another great thing about Judo is the fact that anyone can study, male or female, and even those that are disabled. This martial art is also unique in the sense that even the elderly enjoy practicing it on a daily basis.

Judo also helps students learn and develop respect and self discipline.  It offers the chance to learn self confidence, leadership skills, power, flexibility, and physical prowess.  Judo has evolved quite a bit over the years, going from a fighting art to competition status.  These days, there are separate Judo ranks for kids, adults, and seniors.  

The martial art Judo, which means gentle way teaches you the applications that you need for self defense as well as competition.  Judo is unlike other martial arts, in the sense that it combines the best of grappling with awesome throws that require little to no strength - but more of the way you position your body.  This is an excellent martial art to complement you BJJ- that anyone can enjoy.
