A set of classes specifically designed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Aside from all classes offered in the Adults Gracie Barra Program Structure, our school offers self defense classes designed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a means of self defense. Our Self Defense classes are offered to both men and women, but ladies do have the option on training with their own gender if preferred. As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, BJJ is a perfect fit for women who are interested in learning how to defend themselves!
The Gracie Barra Women’s Program combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum, with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack and escape situations. The techniques are complemented by a strong fitness component that is second to none compared to classes offered in regular gyms.
In addition to effective self-defense techniques, our women’s program is a great solution for anyone who wants to take their fitness routine to the next level. Gracie Barra’s Jiu-Jitsu techniques and versatile class schedules are a great way to keep your fitness routine from plateauing. Enjoy aerobic exercise and strength training that will help you achieve your fitness goals faster and more efficiently than classes offered in regular gyms.
Our martial arts classes for women include Rape Prevention, Jiu-Jitsu Conditioning and even social “get togethers” so you can swap Jiu-Jitsu tips and techniques with other like-minded women. We offer a sense of community that is unparalleled by any other martial arts studio in the world.
