Combat Room

Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) for self defence.

BJJ is a martial art and combat sport that emphasises ground grappling and shows how a smaller, weaker person can overcome a bigger, stronger opponent using leverage and proper technique. Considering nearly all attacks on women end up on the ground, BJJ is empowering and great means of self-defence.

Class sizes vary from 10-20 people coming a week. Beginners can comfortably attend at any point. We have new people starting all the time. You can come to individual classes or sign up for a 10 week concession card.

Who am I?
Maren, has over 11 years of experience in judo and Brazilian jiu jitsu experience. Maren has won a number of national and international events. Recent highlights include coming third in the World Abu Dhabi Professional Jiu Jitsu Competition (women's advanced category) in April 2012. Maren has taken women's self defence classes at combat room since January 2012.

Difficulty
This is not difficult! There will be close physical contact with other women while practicing some of the techniques so be prepared for this, however feel free to stop and watch whenever you do not feel comfortable participating further.

What to wear
Be comfortable! Shirts, shorts and sweat pants are all fine. Try not to wear anything with extra pockets, belt loops or baggy fabric. These are dangerous since fingers and toes can get caught in them. Baggy cargo shorts are a common example of what not to wear. Also bring a drink bottle to keep hydrated.

Classes cover:

Standing technique:
a: Resist being pushed or pulled
b: Escape a choke from both the front and back
c: Blocking and countering a strike
d: Escape a full body hold from behind and from the front
e: Falling and attacking a standing assailant from the ground

Ground technique:
a: Escapes (and counter attack) on an assailant who is between your legs
b: Escapes (and counter attack) on an assailant who is sitting on your chest
c: Escape from when an assailant has your back
d: Controlling a person from the ground - manipulating a larger opponent

- Bring along a friend for a free introductory class
- Group bookings for individual classes / seminars are available

"This seems to be a fantastic opportunity to focus on martial art techniques that will help ladies defend themselves, should we ever need to. Hopefully never, but better to have some skills before they are needed, rather than after."
