I drive by a Jiu Jitsu training facility on my way to class, and now that Syed has started ninja training, I am feeling like I too need to make an active effort to learn self defense.
I like that unlike some other martial arts, Jiu Jitsu teaches you how to safely get out of situations where you end up on the ground or in other compromising places.
After pulling this particular place up online, and seeing that they offer a free intro class, I am tempted to give it a try. I’m also afraid that I am too gimpy and too much of a wuss (herniated discs in my spine, exercise-induced asthma, fibromyalgia, etc) to be able to keep up or really get anything out of the class.
And I feel like that if I had someone (not Syed!) to do this with, I would be so much more okay with at least checking out the free trial class.
