I'm so excited! I usulaly have to work, so this is going to be my first Girls in Gis event. I'm really looking forward to finally meeting everyone face to face. As far as the publicizing, all the credit goes to Pam and Jeff. Oh BTW, you have a much larger audience than I do so feel free to copy and repost Jeff's welcome letter.Back to Pam, she has become a major driving force behind The Revolution Women's BJJ program. She's like a chearleader, motivational speaker, and den mother all rolled into one. I'm really grateful and admire all of her efforts to make this program work.Can't wait to see you,Jodi

Jiu Jitsu is much much more difficult than katrae which is probably why. Most "Dojos" allow you to get a black belt after 3-5 years. To get one in brazilian jiu jitsu it takes at least 8-10 but many people take 10-15. Plus from my experience (6+ years of katrae and 3+ years of bjj) people put in a lot more work at bjj. Its also difficult because in katrae you get promoted when you learn the forms needed to test. In bjj you get promoted when you can beat almost everyone at your current belt level and some of the people at the belt above you. So there are no shortcuts in jiu jitsu.If you go to a good bjj school they will teach self-defense, takedowns and some other rudimentary stand-up that will help you use your bjj in real world settings. I don't want to sound like a katrae hater because I think its great. Its especially great for kids because it teaches discipline and self-control while providing a really good work out. I also think bjj is very difficult to teach to children (probably 12ish is the earliest I think it can really be taught well). From my personal experience bjj is much more difficult and better suited to real life self-defense.References : 6+ years of katrae and 3 years of bjj

Karate works and Jiu Jitsu works. Not going to the ground is prtety basic common sense when there is multiple opponents. Also, Jiu Jitsu can help you prevent getting taken down when facing multi-oppnents.
