Learn to Conquer Mind over Body in Gracie Self Defense Classes

What do you look for in a quality self defense class? Start with philosophy. Learning Jiu Jitsu is more than just about how to kick and block. Ultimately, it’s about how to use the arts of self defense to improve your body as well as your mind. Denver self defense classes should ultimately teach self confidence and control, as well as an understanding and empathy for others. Meditation should be just as much a part of the curriculum as punches and kicks. At Katharo, we believe in using the power of self defense to free our minds to overcome our bodies.
