WHAT WOMEN ARE SAYING ABOUT SEUNG-NI
"I wanted to learn how to protect myself. But I was always intimidated to go into a martial arts school. When I learned about the self defense program at Seung-ni from a co-worker I decided to give it a try. The instructors are so kind and encouraging. My first lesson was cool and everyone was beyond helpful. I have made a ton of friends and the self defense moves are simple to learn, fun to practice and I feel powerful!"

FAQ's About The Self Defense Class
Do I need to be in great shape to begin learning self defense? Not at all. But self defense training will certainly help you increase your strength, flexibility and overall fitness.
Am I too old to learn self defense? No. Anyone at any age can learn self defense. Our students in the class range in age from 13 up into their 60's.
Will I get hurt? The martial art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a very safe form of training, and safety is a core principle here at the Seung-ni Academy. And, because Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a fluid art form that relies on refined technique, momentum and leverage to defend against an attacker instead of combative strikes -- no one will be kicking or punching you.
