San Clemente embraces our Jiu-Jitsu Academy for many different reasons: for the life skills that we teach our kids, for the extra pounds lost when taking our BJJ classes, for the confidence instilled in everyone with less than 8 weeks of training… but certainly, more and more, our quiet and peaceful San Clemente is thanking us for another reason: our San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Academy teaches our residents how to protect themselves efficiently.

Last week, one more case of abuse against a child hit news: more than 15 years ago a San Clemente church volunteer abused from a underage girl (under 14 at the time) for 3 years, from 1993 to 1995. ‘It’s sad but it’s a reality that predators walk freely through our San Clemente. We cannot allow that. This girl (now 30 years old) found the courage just now to come to the police and report it. It’s been 15 years that the violence took place… it marked this girl’s life forever. Can you image if in that period someone else was a victim?’ says San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Head Instructor Paulo.

San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu: An Effective Way Against Violence

“Jiu-Jitsu is the most effective martial arts for self-defense. Why is that? Because Jiu-Jitsu does not rely on strength, it’s pure leverage”, explains Sensei Paulo at his Women Self-defense seminar. Paulo’s San Clemente Jiu-Jitsu Academy offers a FREE community service by teaching our Orange County residents (women, adults and child) against rape, abduction and other forms of violence (emotional and verbal).

Before summer of 2011, Jiu-Jitsu Master Paulo in partnership with local police officer will offer 3 free workshops at his San Clemente facility. So keep tune!
