Our First Jujitsu class


Ok so if you have met our family before you will know why we have to find ways to strengthen our girls when it comes to self defence physically. 

We have 4 girls and at any point in time we want them to be able to protect themselves physically when the need arise.  

So while in Brazil we have to get into the things that makes brazil famous…well you have carnival and all…but you also have a self defence form of martial arts. Like capoiera and jijitsu. 

While in rio we did some capoeira classes and really enjoyed it. Now we are in salvador and we taking it to the next level…starting to learn the art of being able to defend yourself when pinned on the ground. So we are well on our way with that. 

5 days a week for 1hour we train on jujitsu the art of self defense. 

All I can say is it’s harder than it looks. And if you ever plan of bullying some girls keep in mind to stay away from the Manns girls and surly the Manns little boy…lol!!!
