Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and More in Las Colinas, Texas
If you hit a plateau in your exercise regimen or find yourself bored at the gym, physical trainers suggest changing up your routine and doing something a little different.
Nick Reding Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial arts center located four miles, or a ten-minute drive, from our apartments in Las Colinas, TX. Reding's is owned and operated by Nick Reding, a man with extensive experience in several genres of martial arts and who has traveled around the world to learn from the masters of his craft. Nick and his crew offer several training classes:
- Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu- (meaning gentle art) a form of the ancient Japanese Jiu-Jitsu, reinvigorated in 1930's Brazil. You concentrate more on holds and body positions, rather than on punching, grabbing, and kicking. Learn how to move from a vulnerable position to a more powerful one. It doesn't rely on bulky strength.
- Judo- modern martial art and combat and Olympic sport. The object is to grab the opponent and throw them to the ground, or otherwise subdue them and force them to submit, or give up. It's also a way of life- mentally and physically.
- American Kenpo- Kenpo, "The Law of Fists", was Americanized in the 1950s, as an updated, more modern, form of self-defense. It relies on practical and logical thinking and addresses any type of attack from every angle possible. Combination of Karate and Kung Fu. Efficient, effective, explosive.
- Jeet Kune Do- created by Bruce Lee as an evolving form of self-defense incorporating movements from all disciplines of martial arts. Teaches immediate response in defense, as opposed to overthinking your reaction. Concentrates on kicking, boxing, grappling and trapping. Boxing and Filipino stick and knife-fighting techniques have recently been incorporated.
All martial art styles are great cardio and strength training. All of these forms will exercise muscles you don't realize you have. Adding just one or two classes a week to your exercise regimen should bring you out of that plateau and decrease your boredom.
