Gracie Jiu Jitsu is the most valuble martial art for women in the fact that you do not have to be the biggest or stongest in order to use the techniques developed and designed by Helio Gracie. Gracie Jiu Jitsu empowers women, builds strength through adversities, and prepares them for real life-threatening situations. It does not differentiate between male and female, what matters is that you understand the techniques and positioning so you can execute them flawlessly. Our self defense techniques provide the knowledge and skills for any woman to escape an attacker, whether she is on her feet or on the ground. Striking and kicking do not offer an effective strategy against an assailant who is bigger, stronger, and more than capable of hitting back. In addition, they are useless on the ground, which is where a rapist/attacker is most likely to assault a woman.
Through Gracie Jiu Jitsu, women learn that their bodies can create the leverage needed to escape, as well as submissions to subdue an attacker – regardless of size. Jiu Jitsu is also one of the most complete forms of exercise and students quickly notice an increase in strength, endurance, flexibility, and stress reduction.
We offer a Women’s Only class so that ladies have the opportunity to practice and train with other women, where they might feel more comfortable. We encourage all of our ladies to participate in every class we offer, but this one is designed specifically for the Empowerment of Women.
