My son has done 5 classes so far and is loving every second of them. He has adhd and the instructors knew it going in, they've all been very nice and very patient with my son, making sure he understands what is expected of him. I fully trust that he will learn a lot from his experience here.

Amazing place! The instructors and even the other students are great. The facility is super nice, clean and really big. Can't say enough good things. No matter your age, fitness level or goals, it's a fantastic place to learn Brazilian jiu Jitsu, striking arts, self defense, and most importantly make new friends.

The Shopper’s Self Defense Guide

 

Shopping can be a thrill. In a good way and even in a bad way. Adding a little self defense mentality can go a long way.

 

 

Self Awareness

You have society on your side. Potential criminals (for the most part) won’t just obnoxiously run up to you in front of a crowd and take your things. These criminals are looking for an opportune situation. As long as you are aware of your surroundings, you can prevent yourself from ever falling into one of these situations. Your own body is a part of your surroundings. It would be a foolish decision to count cash in public. This is something you should be aware of, and instead count your cash privately.The ultimate  shopping self defense tip is to simply be aware. Be aware of where a potential pick pocket is, and what a potential pick pocket is looking for.

The Pick Pocket

Pickpockets thrive on people shopping. There are crowds of people, loaded with cash and jewelry who know nothing about practical self defense. Get inside the mind of the pick pocket. They are looking for crowds. Pay attention when in a crowd. Don’t forget where all your belongings are. Avoid dark areas. Keep your wallet in your front pockets. Don’t let your bag or purse hang behind you. Everything valuable should be positioned up front where your eyes and hands can follow them at all time.

Clothing

Wear simple, comfortable, and non-flowing clothing. The biggest aspect of shopping  self defense is being prepared. Pay attention and stay safe.

Dealing With Your Car

Another  shopping hotspot for thieves is your vehicle.Pay attention to where you parked. Don’t park in a dark corner. Park where it’s bright. Even if this means you have to park further away, putting yourself in a favorable position is the centerpiece of  shopping self defense. Pay attention when you finish shopping. The walk back to you car is the most dangerous. The criminals know that you are finished with all of your holiday gifts and exhausted. Have your keys ready in hand, and don’t waste any time. Pay attention to your surroundings, get to your car, and get out. If you are worried about your situation, then don’t be scared to ask a security guard to escort you.
