WOD for TJ’s Gym CrossFit San Rafael/Corte Madera/Novato Thurs. May 12th, 2011

Watchu know bout Northbay Jiu Jitsu at TJ’s Gym in Novato?  Owner/Instructor Tryfon Stathopolous is here to tell you all about it:

There are 3 youth classes available, there is:
Little Dragons – 4 to 6 year olds,
Beginner Kids – 6 to 12 year olds and
Beginner Teens – 12 to 15 year olds.  
Parents should put their kids in these classes because they are safe, they are fun, they will teach their children essential life skills, and they will stimulate the growth of strong, confident minds and bodies.
Youths will learn how to effectively use words to prevent fights and bullying. 
They will also learn physical skills such as punching, kicking, tumbling, takedowns, and ground grappling.
Youth will develop balance, coordination, flexibility, strength and endurance through a variety of drills, games, and obstacle courses
If they demonstrate excellent self control they are rewarded with padded sword-fighting against the instructor! (or each other for the older kids)
Give your child a head start on life.  Give them the gift of self-defense, and the confidence, health and happiness that comes with it!
why Jiu Jitsu?  Because Jiu Jitsu has been proven in the street and in the ring to be the most practical, and efficient self defense system in the world.  Not only is it effective, but it is a gentle art that uses technique and strategy to subdue opponents rather that using violence and brutality.  Jiu Jitsu is a grappling art that does not depend on hitting your opponent, but instead teaches you to achieve a dominant position from which you can control him.
Jiu-Jitsu is also a popular international sport which is both challenging and rewarding for students who wish to test their skills.
As for the Muay Thai Kickboxing:
It is open to both men and women.  
this class is one hell of a work out, there is nothing quite like it.  Students must first learn to master proper fighting stance, foot work, punches, kicks, and combinations.  They must also learn to hold the pads.  After that the fun begins, hitting the pads develops balance, multi-planar coordination, speed, power, rhythm, timing, cardio, cardio, cardio, muscle tone.  Not to mention you will learn how to use your bodies most simple and effective weapons: the shins, the knees, the elbows and the fists.  Verbal self defense will also be covered, most fights can be avoided by recognizing a situation and knowing what to say or how to act to prevent violence.  Sometimes you need to be passive, yet other times you need to show strength.  Knowing what to do and when is %90 of real self-defense.  
this class will also include a lot of core conditioning exercises which will increase overall strength, beauty and add a lot of power to your kicks!
I hope this Information was useful, and thanks guys for helping me and supporting me though this process of starting a brand new martial arts program in Novato!
There it is folks an awesome program that begs the question.  Can you take care of yourself if you have to or even better, can your kids?
Aside from that one of CrossFit’s foundation parts is to “Always learn and play new sports.”  Please contact Tryfon before giving a class a shot.  424 8203 or northbayjiujitsu@yahoo.com
