I am so happy with the growth of our Gracie Jiu-Jitsu programs, I had to expand the schedule! We now have Jiu-Jitsu classes on Saturday afternoons, Gracie Combatives from 1-2pm, and Master Cycle from 2-3pm. Yes, it says Master Cycle! I have already been training Master Cycle during that time on Saturdays, and now lets make it official. I look forward to seeing the new blue belts!
Earlier this week, our fellow training partner Adam Choi sent me a news article on Facebook about an attack in Quincy, MA. A man attacked a woman leaving the North Quincy T Station. From police reports, it was concerning that the attacker could have easily stole the woman’s purse, but he did not and continued to attack the woman. Luckily the woman was able to get away, but the attacker is still out there. This post received a lot of attention, and it raised concerns about safety for women.
In response to this attack that took place in Quincy, MA, the Institute of Combative Arts is offering a free women’s self-defense seminar. This special 1-hour seminar is designed for first-time self-defense students and will teach participants three critical techniques to address the following scenarios:
– How to break free from an attacker who grabs you without warning.
– How to avoid being taken to the ground by a determined attacker.
– How to escape from underneath an attacker pinning you to the ground.

What does a not-so-picture-perfect knife-attack scenario look like? Combat Focus Shooting expert Rob Pincus talks about that in his latest video, shot exclusively for Black Belt Magazine.
As a practitioner of shooting and knife fighting. I tend to criticize many so called self-defense experts demonstrating anything with guns and knives. I will give this article and video a thumb up.
I particularly like the duck under move used by Pincus, it provides some control in a better position.
