This is Katie, she’s awesome. She’s been training in our AKJJ – jujutsu classes now for several months and she’s getting good at it. She also has cerebral palsy and two steel rods in her back.

For all the guys that have told me that class is too hard and that they feel they need to get in better shape before they start training, you missed the point of what we do. It’s not about being bigger, stronger or in better shape, It’s about using what you already have to the best of your ability. We teach the smaller guy how to defend themselves and how to “win” and Katie is a champion!
