Gracie Breakdown
It is NEVER the Victim's Fault

It is a man's responsibility to respect women and their boundaries. But until this day comes, we encourage women to learn self defense; not because it's their responsibility, but because it's their reality.

If you agree, help us spread the word.

Free Women's Self Defense Seminar - Saturday, July 15
On Saturday, July 15th, the Gracie Academy will be offering women's self-defense seminars in Torrance, California, and at select Certified Training Centers worldwide. There is no cost, but you must pre-register to save your spot. Learn more and register online at www.GracieGirls.com

Major thanks to Ryan Smith for collaborating with us on this one. Check him out at Ryan Smith Films and RyanSmithFilms.com.
