    Self Defense at Lafayette Library

    Our very own Head Female Instructor of Team Hopkins Lafayette (Monica Champagne) was invited by the Lafayette Public Library to teach 2 seperate Women's Self Defense Seminar at 2 different branches. So we started the seminar at 10:00 a.m. at the South Regional Library on Johnston St. Six of our female Jiu-jitsu students came to help teach techniques. We had a really good turn out from Lafayette women looking for practical self defense. They learned to defend the most common attacks from standing and on the ground, by using leverage, strategy, technique and timing against a bigger opponent. The seminar focused on the importance of distance management in threatening situations. ....

  • Gi? What's that?

    Since it was created in 1882 by Kano Jigoro of Japan, Judo has become one of the most popular martial arts in the world. It is quite a rigorous and physically demanding sport, appearing in several major international sports competitions.

Judo uniforms are generally constructed out of 100% cotton, bleached white. Cotton is the best choice for breathability. Care should be taken when laundering, as most judo uniforms are not pre-shrunken and will shrink up to a full size from excess heat. Therefore, washing in cool water and air drying ....

  • The Jedi Code?

    With the new SOLO STAR WARS movie coming out this month, I was reminded by my son of how much of a correlationthe Jedi have with martial arts. While entirely fictional, the enigmatic concept known as “The Force” is based on some very real principles. In the movie, Star Wars, the “Force” is often spoken of by members of an order called the Jedi. The warrior-priests of the Jedi Order served as the main proponents of what they believed to be the core concepts of The Force. The concept and the order are fictional, but the principles by which the Jedi lived their lives are excellent guides to living one’s life, especially amidst all the chaos of the modern ....
