Jiu Jitsu Self-Defense Class

The Whole Person will be partnering with Kansas City Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (KCBJJ) to present a self-defense class tailored for people with mobility issues (including wheelchairs). This will be basic grabs, holds, and deflection methods.

Saturdays on June 5 and 12, 2021

Olathe Community Center
1205 E Kansas City Rd, Olathe, KS

Particiants must be age 10 or above. Reservations are required, and are limited to the first 10 requests.

KCBJJ is among the longest standing Jiu Jitsu academies in the Kansas City Metro, having formed in it’s current iteration in 2004. Primary instructor Jason Bircher began his own training in 1998, and has maintained an environment open to high level competitors and casual practitioners throughout the existence of the school. Members take an equal pride in the welcoming nature of the academy, as well as the accomplishments of our team on all levels.

Masks will be required, however there will be close contact.
