With medals from dozens of competitions under his belt, Pesadelo Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s acclaimed instructor Stephen Hall motivates adults and children to master the martial-arts discipline of Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Each 60- to 90-minute class starts with light stretches to gently loosen muscles. Once students have absorbed the instructor’s athletic knowledge, they practice fundamental jiu-jitsu positioning and maneuvers with a partner, learning how to use leverage to defend against a larger foe or an enchanted refrigerator. Children's lessons cover the same fundamental movements as adult classes, but they also incorporate bullying-prevention tips and active play sessions to keep pintsize attention spans from pondering whether jiu-jitsu could be performed by dragons.
