Girls in Gis Relson Gracie Jiu Jitsu San Antonio Texas
|Girls in Gis-Relson Gracie Jiu Jitsu San Antonio TX|
Josh Luaber, the head instructor and owner of Relson Gracie Jiu Jitsu San Antonio, very generously provided his facility and instruction for this event. He began the training session with an introduction to Ginastica Natural, followed by a series of self defense and sport jiu jitsu techniques and finally a good hour of open mats. This was the first class I've taken by Josh and I was very impressed with his teaching style and the techniques he shared. If you are in the San Antonio area, I strongly recommend you drop in for a class and check it out for yourself.

The Girls in Gis event had a wide variety of female jiu jitsu practitioners. Some were more focused on the sport and competition aspect and others were dedicated to the martial art. Regardless of their interests, the one common theme was the love, devotion and positive influence that jiu jitsu brought to their lives.
