Switch to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at GSAC

Friday, 10 May 2019

Have you ever wanted to learn a martial art? Do you want to lose weight and be more confident? Do you want your kids to be more self-reliant and disciplined?

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is coming to SWITCH 24-hour Gym at Goonellabah Sports & Aquatic Centre from 1 July with a free open day for families on Saturday, 15 June.

Head Instructor of the new SWITCH Jiu-Jitsu, Ben Pietzsch, said families including mum, dad and children of all ages are welcome to come and give Jiu-Jitsu a try.

“Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is an incredible learning tool for young people and a practice that brings families together. It’s great for mind, body and overall fitness,” Ben said.

“Brazilian Jiu Jitsu uses the power of leverage and technique teaching the student that once you learn the correct movements, size does not matter. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a great form of discipline and self-protection. It’s ideal for women and young men as Jiu-Jitsu offers a no-striking method of personal protection and self-defence that is fun and engaging.”

Ben said SWITCH Jiu-Jitsu was suitable for children from the age of six and it is taught in a family-friendly environment where children and their parents can practise together.

“GSAC is the perfect place for this type of program as it offers state-of-the-art facilities and the infrastructure to support members,” he said.

“We invite people to enjoy our open day with a demonstration and Q&A session. Even if you’ve never thought about doing martial arts before, come along and enjoy the experience with your kids. Ask questions, join in, have fun.”

The open day runs from 9am to 12pm at GSAC and everyone is welcome.

Classes will begin on 1 July as follows:

  • Kids        Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
  • Adults    Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday

No registration is necessary for the open day. For more information or to book classes, phone the friendly SWITCH team on 6625 5370.
