Do your mind and body a favour with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Thursday, 01 August 2019

Have you ever wanted to learn a martial art? Do you want to lose weight and be more confident? Do you want your kids to be more self-reliant and disciplined?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is now available at SWITCH 24-hour gym at Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre and it's already become popular with local families.

Head Instructor of the new SWITCH Jiu-Jitsu, Ben Pietzsch, said families including mum, dad and children of all ages are welcome to come and give Jiu-Jitsu a try.

“Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an incredible learning tool for young people and a practice that brings families together. It’s great for mind, body and overall fitness,” Ben said.

“Brazilian Jiu Jitsu uses the power of leverage and technique teaching the student that once you learn the correct movements, size does not matter. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great form of discipline and self-protection. It’s ideal for women and young men as Jiu-Jitsu offers a no-striking method of personal protection and self-defence that is fun and engaging.”

Ben said SWITCH Jiu-Jitsu was suitable for children from the age of six and it is taught in a family-friendly environment where children and their parents can practise together.

“GSAC is the perfect place for this type of program as it offers state-of-the-art facilities and the infrastructure to support members,” he said.

“Even if you’ve never thought about doing martial arts before, come along and try it! We welcome absolute beginners and classes are both informative and fun.”
