Self-Defense Class (with UNC Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu)
Sundays (during the fall semester)
3-5 p.m.
Campus Rec Center: Lower Group Fitness Room

Learn self-defense techniques from the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu perspective. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling based martial art that emphasizes ground combat. Taking an opponent off their feet and into a grappling situation on the ground mitigates the size and strength advantages of larger, stronger opponents. This makes BJJ an excellent martial art for self-defense. The class is free and is an introduction to the club's self-defense classes that will continue to run throughout the school year. For more info, contact club president Jorge.Rubio@unco.edu or join us on UNC's BearCave
