Brogan Morris of WESH TV recently interviewed Professor Brian Ruscio about the Ladies Only Classes at Grappling Mastery and had the opportunity to practice some moves that can be used to defend herself should she ever be attacked. We picked a couple of techniques to be shown live on video and answered a few common questions about self defense.
Brogan: “There have been 77 reported sexual assaults in Orange County in the past six months. Of those 77, nine were from the University of Central Florida area alone. Knowing how to protect yourself can save you if you are ever attacked. Grappling Mastery is a place in Central Florida where women can learn self-defense.”
Brian: “Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the most effective martial art for women’s self defense. Every attacker wants to take you to the ground. That’s where Brazilian Jiu Jitsu specializes. Not only will you learn self defense, but you will get in shape, have fun, and develop self confidence.”
Brogan: “What would you say to any ladies that might be hesitant to join a class?”
Brian: “That’s normal, even most guys are hesitant. It’s always better to overcome one moment of hesitation, than to live a lifetime of regret.”
