Brazilian Jiujitsu

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a martial art that teaches a smaller person how to defend himself or herself against a larger adversary by using leverage and proper technique. Based on Judo and traditional Jiujitsu, the art is a self-defense system that focuses on grappling, and ground fighting. This art form is also very useful for women looking to learn self-defense.

Menorca

Menorca is an island in the Balearic islands of Spain. Its beaches are unspoilt and idyllic with glistening sand and turquoise water. Outside peak season, it is still often warm enough to sit in the sun and the temperature is ideal for strolling around the coastal paths.

The island has been quietly encouraging sustainable tourism for years, long before it became fashionable. Its gentle landscapes are ideal for activities such as walking, cycling or riding – with no scary sharp inclines for those of us who are not super fit.

Stone monuments dating back thousands of years are scattered across the countryside, providing markers for a hiking holiday, while ancient coastal pathshave been restored to link the never ending series of perfect coves.

Although the season gets going in May and winds down in October, the islands are beautiful in early spring when the almond blossom is out. Outside the hottest months of July and August, all the Balearics are good for activity holidays, whether easy or more challenging, with plenty to see if you are interested in plants or birds. Sunshine is not guaranteed, however, and you may well hit a rainy patch in late autumn.

Menorca is all about getting out on the water, whether swimming, diving, kayaking, paddleboarding or sailing. Back on land, get your walking boots on hike around the coastal path or cycle through the lanes that crisscross the countryside. Spend a morning strolling around the elegant towns of Ciutadella and Mahón at opposite ends of the island, then kick back at a harbourside table to devour a platter of shellfish. No one is ever in a rush in Menorca.
