Eric Gardiner, a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and head instructor at American Kicks Martial Arts and Fitness in Durham, is offering a four-part self-defense series, beginning Sunday.

Workshops will be held from 1 to 2:30 p.m. March 4, 11, 18, and 25, at American Kicks Martial Arts, 1052 Royalsborough Road. The cost is $50 for the entire workshop series, or $15 per session.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art that concentrates on fighting while on the ground. The workshop was inspired by Gardiner’s talks with parents, who expressed concern for both themselves and their young adult children in the matter of protecting themselves.
