Womens Program


A set of classes especifically designed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


Our women’s martial arts program is designed to teach women how to defend against any attacker – even those who are significantly larger in size. Our instructors will help you run drills to simulate realistic attack and escape situations you might encounter in the real world. With practice, you can leverage an attacker’s weight against them, allowing you to escape and get to safety unharmed. The self-defense techniques taught in this class use Jiu-Jitsu fundamentals that complement our selection of additional adult classes.

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.
