Jui-Jitsu Self Defense-fb.jpg

Throughout the history of Judaism, various scholars have drawn slightly different lessons about self-defense from the Torah, but they have all agreed with the core principle that self-defense is permissible in cases of necessity.

Recently, many in the queer and Jewish (and especially the queer Jewish) communities have expressed feeling increased threats to their personal safety — in response to an overwhelming need, GLOE is launching a new monthly seminar series in partnership with Capital MMA that offers an introduction to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu self-defense, starting Sunday, February 26 from 1:30pm to 4:30pm at the EDCJCC fitness center.

Jay Ferrari, head instructor of Capital MMA in Takoma, is conducting this recurring seminar for members of the LGBTQ community with a fixed curriculum that covers basic techniques and strategies for protecting yourself; attendees should wear loose, comfortable clothing.

Co-presented with Capital MMA and The Coven DC.

Time: 1:30 PM - 4:30 PM
1529 16th Street NW
Washington, DC 20036
United States
