Mother and daughter self-defense class

In a perfect world, women wouldn’t need self-defense because men wouldn’t perpetrate these crimes — but the world is far from perfect. The Gracie Women Empowered program is a jiu-jitsu-based women’s self-defense system which addresses the most common threats against women. In addition to leverage-based physical techniques, women are taught to use the “psychology of an assault” to set boundaries, assess intentions and deter attacks before they happen!

The Basics Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy is organizing a self defense course which is open to the general public. It consists in four classes of an hour and a half long each, from 4:00 p.m – 5:30 p.m. Open to 13 yr old women and older.
No experience is needed to participate!
