“Jiu-Jitsu isn’t for the strong, it’s for the physically weak, for women”


by Graciemag Newsroom

Who was it that used to defend this thesis statement? None other than Grandmaster Helio Gracie, who left us two years ago on January 29, 2009.

The master was right. These days, Jiu-Jitsu is being practiced by more and more women as a means of self-defense, as a sport and as exercise. At the 2009 World Championship there were 143 of them signed up. At the 2010 Worlds the number jumped to 176.

The growth of female Jiu-Jitsu is one of the themes of Brazil’s “Sensei Sportv” television program this Saturday, featuring super model white belt Carol Francischini practicing self-defense positions with her boyfriend, Guilherme Valente.

As an homage to the philosophy of the late teacher, GRACIEMAG put together a special Training Program on self-defense.

“O Jiu-Jitsu não é para os fortões, é para os fracos, para as mulheres”

Quem defendia essa tese? Ninguém menos que grande mestre Helio Gracie, que nos deixou há dois anos, no dia 29 de janeiro de 2009.

O mestre estava certo. Hoje, o Jiu-Jitsu é praticado por cada vez mais mulheres, como meio de se defender, como esporte e como ginástica. No Mundial 2009, foram 143 moças inscritas. No Mundial 2010, o número subiu para 176.

O crescimento do Jiu-Jitsu feminino é um dos temas do programa “Sensei Sportv” deste sábado, às 0h30m, que traz a top  model e faixa-branca Carol Francischini treinando posições de defesa pessoal com o namorado Guilherme Valente.

Em homenagem à filosofia do saudoso professor, GRACIEMAG produziu um Plano de Aula especial sobre defesa pessoal.
