67% of all Canadians say they personally know at least one woman who has been sexually or physically assaulted. The alarming number of violent attacks against women on Vancouver’s streets make self-defence a life skill everyone should know. We believe the most effective approach to self-defence is learning how to neutralize an attacker. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will teach you to manage distance, keeping yourself safe from strikes, while adapting to the changing landscape of a real fight. This isn’t your stereotypical self-defence education, such as strikes to the solar plexus, instep, nose, or groin. Here is an excellent and impactful video showcasing some of the same tools we teach regularly.
Learning how to defend yourself is a challenging yet necessary task. Elements Academy offers a safe, supportive training environment through Women’s Self-Defence Workshops and weekly Co-Ed Jiu-Jitsu Classes.
