Join Callie for the women-only Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Fundamentals course. We’ll learn the basic body movements, mechanics, and techniques of submission grappling. By the end of the the 4 weeks, you’ll have a solid sense of the Jiu Jitsu fundamentals and how it can continue to enhance your life
Women’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Starts Sunday
Brazilian jiu jitsu (BJJ) is a full-contact grappling style that prioritizes strategy over brute force. Literally translating to the “soft” or “pliable” (jiu) “style” (jitsu), it is often thought of as the chess of martial arts. BJJ is, at its core, a self-defense system that employs positional advantages, joint locks, and chokes to defend against an opponent or attacker in an assertive and elegant manner. You needn’t be stronger than your opponent to subdue them, which makes BJJ one of the most practical and effective martial arts for all ages and sizes. There is no striking in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. This is a submission grappling art based on efficiency of movement, leverage, and timing.
This one’s for the ladies! Same BJJ Level 1 starter pack we’ve been offering, with a stronger focus on self-defense. If you’ve been curious about BJJ but are apprehensive about rolling around on the ground with a bunch of dudes, this is your chance to get started!

A note from CFSBKer Adam Scher, the Scherbear:
My company was nominated for a Webby (the Oscar’s of the internet)! The Believer, a website we designed and built has been nominated for Best Magazine Website. The nomination has two parts, a critic’s choice and a people’s Choice. That’s where CFBSK comes in. If the community could vote it would be so helpful as we are up against a little old magazine called The New Yorker. Thanks for the help! Voting takes 60 seconds and can be done here.
Let’s do it, gang!
