Share it

“Self-defense is to defend yourself from yourself.” That’s not our saying; it’s from a 2011 advert put together for Kimura/Nova União Jiu-Jitsu academy by São Paulo marketing company Coletivodedois.

Indeed, to reinforce the ad drummed up by Leonardo Parnes and James Williams, only by keeping up with your training will you protect yourself from yourself, from the pizza you eat, poor physical shape, your own fears and a failure to react to aggressions that may come at you at any time or any place.

How’s your health? What about your reflexes? How’s your Jiu-Jitsu technique should some unpleasant surprise await you around the next corner?

This weekend GRACIEMAG.com brings you some self-defense exercises and maneuvers every Jiu-Jitsu practitioner needs to know to be safe. Remember, as Helio Gracie used to say, “sport Jiu-Jitsu is just 30% of Jiu-Jitsu.” It’s not enough to simply teach a student to be a champion; you have to teach him to protect himself.
