Manchester Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu follows the teachings of the Gracie family, who derived their own style of jiu-jitsu after learning the ancient Japanese version of the art. Jiu-jitsu's practice allows for a physically weaker person to defeat a stronger opponent through the use of superior technique and skill. Manchester Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu offers classes to kids—who learn both self-defense and self-confidence—and adults alike.
Instructors at Frank Corbo’s aren't satisfied with simply imparting martial-arts techniques to the kids, teens, and adults they take under their professionally trained wings. In addition to teaching proper form, instructors aim to instill students with confidence, self-discipline, and tenacity that pupils can take with them when they leave the mirrored facility's blue mat. The studio belongs to Black Belt Schools International, which helps the staff stay updated on new techniques, teaching methods, nutritional science, and laundering techniques to ensure belt colors never fade. In addition to karate, the schedule includes classes on self-defense for adults and kids, fitness kickboxing, and mixed martial arts.
For the staff of Integrated Personal Defense, LLC, training is about more than self-defense. It's about focusing on complete personal development. During such classes as cardio kickboxing and mixed martial arts, they instill students with the skills to defend themselves while building confidence, discipline, and a positive mental attitude. They bring this approach to all classes for adults and kids, creating an engaged, fun environment that hinges on individualized attention.
