Sensei Blayne, a rare female Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt,  brings the female and small person perspective to Modern Vision. “Small people can not get away with bad technique. A 200+lb person doesn’t understand this, as hard as they may try,” says Sensei Blayne, “it is a great benefit to learn our art from a smaller person since our tecniques are precise and tight.”  One of Sensei Blayne’s biggest goals is to get more women involved in Jiu-Jitsu. “It is a wonderful art and it works. Women who are concerned with self-defense need to take a serious look at Jiu-Jitsu, it really worksand it’s a blast.”
