Miami Self-Defense Classes

Self-defense classes in Miami prepare you physically and mentally to successfully handle bullies and attackers. At Marcus Arielo Jiu Jitsu Academy we stress the importance of avoiding physical confrontation, but it does happen, and we want you to be prepared!

For those bullies or attackers who cannot be avoided or defused, our strong array of practical real-world BJJ techniques – brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques – are perfect for incapacitating a much larger and stronger opponent while protecting yourself from damage.

The BJJ techniques learned at our self-defense classes in Miami also gives our BJJ MMA students the confidence they need to stand up for themselves and others.

We help you build the confidence and skill sets that makes bullies think twice. Often this is enough to avoid the escalation to violence, and if not, you or your child will be fully equipped to handle any attack with the proper physical response.


Self Defense and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Helps Bully-Proof Both Children and Adults

Being bullied creates a host of self-confidence issues that hamper production, limit potential, and often result in lingering issues relating to anger, resentment, and depression.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the perfect self-defense martial arts form against bullies because it utilizes an opponent’s aggression against them and works as effectively on the ground as it does on your feet, enabling you to win any fight from any position. We teach both adult Jiu Jitsu classes as well as Jiu Jitsu classes for kids.

From social media and cyber bullying to physical intimidation, most people associate bullying with school ground children but plenty of bullying happens in the adult world as well.
