For the past couple of weeks Siri Parmeshar has been offering the students a Brazillian Jiu Jitsu class. This class has been getting more and more popular as students are getting excited about everything that the martial art has to offer.
Jiu Jitsu means the gentle art. It is a martial art designed so that smaller and weaker people can fight and defend themselves against a larger opponent. The martial art relies on technique to overcome strength. Learning good technique requires you to be focused and to not run up against a resistance, but rather work around it. Practitioners of Brazzilian Jiu Jitsu learn to keep their cool in a violent situation and gain confidence in themselves. This is what is being offered to the students.
I asked Siri Parmeshar about the class.
“When I was a students here I really wanted to learn a variety of martial arts. After I graduated I got very interested in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and I’m grateful for the opportunity to share my passion with the students.”
