Today, we had an outstanding demonstration and orientation to the philosophy behind Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Thanks to Kevin Kellems from Mushin Brazilian jiu- jitsu and martial arts and Jeremy Shaffer for an outstanding demonstration today. Kevin and Jeremy demonstrated multiple self-defense techniques that are taught through his program.

Kevin offers classes for youth through adults, male and female. He can be reached on Facebook at Mushin Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
