Women’s Self-Defense That Actually Works!
Women Empowered® is the official Gracie self-defense program for women based on the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). In this 15-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 20 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience. Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques in the Women Empowered program employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents. Once you complete the Women Empowered program, you may test for promotion to pink belt! ONCE YOU EARN YOUR PINK BELT, YOU MAY ATTEND WOMEN EMPOWERED CLASSES FOR FREE FOREVER!
If you want to learn to defend yourself in a fun, safe and cooperative environment, the Women Empowered® program is for you. For more information, click Women Empowered.
We also offer half and full-day corporate seminars that teach employees how to set, trust, and defend boundaries in the workplace. For more information or to schedule a seminar, click here.
