Journey Martial Arts Academy is extremely excited to welcome certified self defense instructor and jiu jitsu 5th degree black belt Cristiano Ribeiro for a beginners primer on combatives self defense on Friday October 5th @ 6PM.
Coach Ribeiro brings a wealth of knowledge and real world experience with over 20 years as a Gracie Jiu Jitsu black belt and a competitor.
Here are just a few potentially life-saving skills you’ll learn in the course of this 1.5 hour workshop
- What actual street violence ACTUALLY looks like (99% of instructors never show this)
- Develop a combative mindset for when violence is imminent, so you can be prepared for real violence on the street
- Discover the hidden signals that street thugs look for in their victims, and learn how to respond correctly so that you don’t become one!
- Learn distance-management techniques to avoid getting hit, even if you’re up against a big brawler
- Discover the biggest reason most self-defense systems set you up to fail by ignoring the chaotic nature of street fights and grappling
- Learn a basic escape and an easy submission hold that works even if the person is twice your size and strength
That’s just a small taste of life-changing skills that Cris has spent the last two decades perfecting in his combatives self-defense system.
