Considering the recent news regarding women and girls in our city being assaulted, the TGCA, Calgary Communities, and Professor Diana Trang (“Professor” meaning “teacher” in Brazilian Portuguese), have organized this free online seminar to teach others how they can defend themselves through Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, a martial art originating from Brazil to which she holds a Black Belt rank.   

No previous experience is required to register. Participants will learn valuable self-defense techniques and will also be taught the value of adopting these on-going practices for life.  

This seminar is open to all ages and genders. To get maximum benefit from this online seminar, we suggest that everyone to work in pairs with their families and/or cohorts in order to gain as much practical opportunity as possible. If you are unable to find another person in your household, there will still be techniques and drills taught for those working independently as well. 

Please wear comfortable fitness appropriate attire and ensure that the space you are in while participating allows for one/both participants to lay down across the floor.  

This is an online seminar, so you will need a zoomcapable device that you can watch while you participate.

Registration closes by March 17, so register today! 

When you’ve been registered, you will receive a confirmation email. Please expect another email that will provide the zoom link to the seminar. Tannis Eapen, our Thorncliffe Greenview community social worker, will contact all participants via email to provide the zoom link in the days leading up to the seminar.
