Solstice West Empowers Students with Gracie Jiu-Jitsu
Solstice West is thrilled to announce the addition of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, a renowned martial art and personal defense mechanism, to its roster of adventure therapy programming experiences. With a commitment to holistic healing and empowerment, Solstice West continues to expand its innovative efforts to enhance the lives of students overcoming trauma and emotional obstacles.
The integration of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu reflects Solstice West’s proactive approach to therapy, health, and safety. The new program offers a unique opportunity and provides a platform for teens to learn essential self-defense skills from certified experts at the local Gracie Jiu-Jitsu training center in Clinton, UT.
“Safety, empowerment, and personal growth are at the heart of what we do at Solstice West,” said Michael Sanders, Director of Adventure Programming. “Many students who come to us have had the unfortunate experience of being assaulted or hurt in one way or another, and engaging in self-defense in a program like this, with mentors and trainers who are trauma-informed, can help them process through some of the hurt and trauma that has resulted. We’re excited to witness this program’s positive impacts on their therapeutic journey.”
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is celebrated for its non-violent approach to self-defense, focusing on control and submission techniques that allow individuals, regardless of size or strength, to protect themselves effectively. This art also promotes physical fitness, mental acuity, and emotional well-being.
The new offering showcases Solstice West’s dedication to providing diverse therapeutic experiences. From the peaks of outdoor adventures to the mindfulness of yoga, and now the precision of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Solstice West continues to break new ground in youth therapeutic care.
Solstice West students eagerly anticipate the launch of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu program, viewing it as an additional tool to aid in their recovery and growth. Current students have expressed excitement about the new opportunities to develop new skills and coping mechanisms supporting their transformation.
Solstice West has solidified its reputation for pioneering interventions that support its EnRICH model of Excellence in Relationships, Influence, Character, and Health. With the introduction of the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu program, Solstice West positions itself at the forefront of the adventure and service therapy field, setting a standard for innovative therapeutic practices.
