In light of the news regarding assaults in our city (see link below) and around the world, Professor Diana Trang ("Professor" meaning "teacher" in Brazilian Portuguese), has organized this 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.
This month's seminar is also geared at supporting those concerned about the surge of anti-asian hates crimes and racial violence occurring in our city and around the globe as well. This is extremely disheartening, but a way to offer a means of protection to those being targetted.
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 is a free event to anyone who may be experiencing financial barriers, however, Prof. Diana encourages everyone who is able to donate, to donate. 100% of the proceeds will go to a registered charity or non-profit (still to be determined) that serves ethno/racio-cultural diversity, inclusion, and equality - a cause Diana supports whole-heartedly, especially as a woman of Vietnamese/Chinese decent. To stay connected to announcements on which organization is chosen, please follow social media accounts.
To get maximum benefit from this online seminar, we suggest for everyone to work in pairs with their families and cohorts in order to gain as much practical opportunity as possible. If you are unable to find another person in your household, please feel free to join anyways! There will still be lots to take-away.

Over this time, Prof. Diana has taken part in the growth of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Canada and is one of the first female pioneers of BJJ in Western Canada.
