THE bully-proof-your-child programme prioritises building confidence within children to deal with their everyday challenges.

“Brazilian Jiu jitsu [BJJ] promotes the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger, heavier assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent,” said BJJ coach Morné Swanepoel.

For the first time in KwaZulu-Natal, children are able to grade internationally with Swanepoel, one of the most qualified and recognised Brazilian Jiu jitsu instructors and fighters in KZN and South Africa.

Swanepoel said BJJ training can be used for sport- grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) andmixed martial arts competition or self-defence and has proved to be one of the most effective martial arts in the world, thanks to the Ultimate Fighting Championship. - Supplied.
