It is scheduled to go down on the 4th of February between 10 am and 12 pm at the Hartford Dojo. The course is based on the art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu developed by esteemed Gracie University. This course is specifically tailored to impart law enforcement and military personnel with the skills to handle worst case scenarios.

This 90-minute training exercise will cover several Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques that will enable you to better handle yourself in the field and keep yourself safe.

Tickets go for $12 for adults and free of charge for children.

Michelle Iglesias Forced Perspective

This has been an ongoing event that began on the 19th of January and is set to end on the 17th of February, so there is still plenty of time. Forced perspective will be held in the David M.
