Jacksonville Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu's certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instructor, Larry Shealy, focuses on leverage, timing, and technique—giving men and women of all ages the ability to physically overpower attackers and crazed lawn ornaments, regardless of their size. Brazilian jiu-jitsu also tones the body, dispels stress, and boosts confidence in a safe, respectful environment. In Women’s Self-Defense, simulated street situations teach ladies how to avoid physical confrontations by setting verbal and physical boundaries⎯as well as how to defend themselves if their attempts at cartography fail. Muay Thai kickboxing, also known as "the science of eight limbs" or "octopusology," boosts mental focus and physical fitness for no-holds-barred riddle contests and wedding-dress fittings. Child and adolescent specialist Robyn J. A. Silverman bully-proofs kids ages 4–14 with rock-solid values and soaring self-esteem in the popular Kid-Jitsu program.
