Team Silva Jiu-Jitsu To Hold a Vital Self-Defense Seminar

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — In response to the rapid rise of mass shootings and violence in schools, Team Silva Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu will be offering a "Self-Defense Combat Training" workshop from 12pm-2pm PST on Saturday, March 9th, 16th, and April 6th 2013 in Alameda, CA.

The self-defense seminar will cover restraint techniques, law enforcement immobilization techniques, basic Muay Thai clinches and strikes, and a full fitness evaluation of all attendees. In an age where only criminals regularly carry firearms, it is more important than ever for law-abiding citizens to learn how to best defend themselves when confronted with a life-or-death situation. Instructor Sergio Silva strongly encourages teachers, other public service officials, and anyone else just wanting to better learn how to defend themselves to take this course as this seminar can teach you how to effectively immobilize and detain an attacker and prevent him or her from hurting others.

Instructor Sergio Silva is a multiple time world champion Brazililan Jiu-Jitsu competitor. Known as the world's most effective martial art, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu relies on technique and leverage to help a smaller person defeat a larger adversary. Master Silva has studied Jiu-Jitsu for 20 years and has given training to United States Army Rangers, BART Police Officers, Alameda County Task Force, Brazilian Special Forces, and T.I.G.E.R. Unites, just to name a few.

Registration is free for one day and $150 for all three dates.
