Join us this Saturday for Capitol Combat’s Darcio Lira Self Defense Seminar from 1:00-3:00 PM. These workshops are designed to teach how to navigate and defend against realistic attacks. Students are shown close quarters techniques, which utilize jiu-jitsu and wing chung martial arts. The goal is to empower students and give them realistic options for defending off an attacker. Emphasis is placed on techniques which could be used in a small space such as bar, restaurant, metro car, apartment, or vehicle. Quick hands, joint manipulation, balance equalization are implemented in the approach taught. No prior martial arts experience is required – just an open mind, willingness to learn something new and to have fun!

The course will be lead by Steve Casazza. Steve has 20 years of martial arts experience with a second degree black belt in Isshin-Ryu Karate and a purple belt in Darcio Lira Jiu Jitsu. His focus area is self-defense and real world applications where an individual needs to diffuse threatening or compromising situations with minimal effort and maximum safety.
