Prince George's County Police Athletic League


                  PAL MARTIAL ARTS PROGRAM           

The Prince George's County Police Athletic League has partnered with Cabrera Jiu-Jitsu to provide self defense classes for the county's youth. The PAL Martial Arts program is designed to teach self defense to boys and girls, ages 9 through 13. The program includes a mentoring aspect, which focuses on the core values of respect, discipline, staying healthy and safe, and living by a code. Special emphasis is placed on avoiding unsafe situations and de-escalation of scenarios that have the potential to turn violent, while giving students the skills necessary to defend themselves and to reach safety if a confrontation is unavoidable. This is a great way for boys and girls to gain self confidence by learning an important and useful skill. They will also benefit from instruction and mentoring by Cesar Cabrera, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under the Renzo Gracie lineage. His training and breadth of experiences extend over 30 years, and he truly believes that making the decision to pursue the journey of martial arts changed his life for the better and wants to help others find this positive experience as well. Newcomers to the program should register for the Intro class.  Registration for the Advanced class requires previous enrollment in PAL Martial Arts or permission from the instructor.
