There is a big difference between trained and untrained. Untrained individuals do not have a chance against trained individuals. The fight will be over swiftly. This is the main idea behind our self defense class. If you find yourself under attack by someone who is weak and knows nothing about hand to hand combat, then you win. The worst thing that could happen to one of us is an atrocity that could have been averted by a little training. It doesn't require a black belt in BJJ to hurt an untrained individual bad enough to force a retreat. You will learn how to choke out, dislocate joints, and break faces with ease. What we will be learning is very serious, the situation you are preparing to defend yourself in is very serious. It is savage, ruthless, your worst nightmare. BUT, we will have a lot of fun learning!
