Free Women’s Self-Defense Seminar | Quincy, MA | Dec. 3, 2014

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.

Jiu-Jitsu is Growing

Cover Pic 1

After a couple of years of having Jiu-Jitsu classes only on Wednesdays, we are now expanding. There will be beginner Jiu-Jitsu classes:

Tuesdays: 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm
Wednesdays: 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Fridays: 5:45 pm – 6:45 pm

If you live in or around Quincy, MA. Please let your friends and family members know about our Beginner Jiu-Jitsu program for adults. In this program, you will learn the 36 core techniques of Jiu-Jitsu in a fun, safe, and cooperative environment. Each one-hour lesson addresses one standing and one ground self-defense technique. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience and, since safety is our number one concern, there is no competitive sparring in this program.

Although Jiu-Jitsu consists of over 600 techniques, studies of real fights conducted by members of the Gracie Family (founders of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) have shown that 36 techniques have been used more often and with greater success than all the other techniques combined. Originally developed for the U.S. Army, our Beginner Jiu-Jitsu Program is entirely dedicated to the mastery of these 36 essential techniques. You need absolutely no experience to start this program. Our instructor conduct all classes in a cooperative training environment and are committed to ensuring that every new student has an informative, enjoyable experience regardless of age, gender, or athletic ability.

That’s not a Martial Art

During a visit with my oral hygienist, I started up an interesting conversation with her. She told me that she is really excited now that she is taking boxing classes. I asked her what is the name of the boxing instructor, and after telling me who it was, I told her to say hi for me. She was surprised that a karate guy would know a boxing instructor. I just said, us martial arts guys just know each other. Then she said, “Boxing is a martial art?”

I thought about this for a while, and realized that many people associate martial arts with arts from Asia. The truth is martial arts is probably one of the oldest forms of combative expressions. Martial arts exposure is all around us, whether we recognize it or not. Most kids in America have the opportunity to learn some form of it when they are young, like wrestling and boxing.

Wrestling and Boxing is more commonly viewed as sports here in America, but they are still a Martial Art.
