Women Empowered: Women's Self Defense That Works!

Women Empowered is the official Gracie self-defense program for women. In this 20-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 15 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant. Each one-hour Women Empowered lesson addresses two techniques. 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.

"Law enforcement officials and survivors of sexual assault helped us identify the 15 most common attack strategies that a male assailant is likely to use on a woman. From hair-grabs and choke-holds, to bear hugs and weapon defenses, the Women Empowered program covers it all." Rener Gracie

This class is for YOU! 

We also understand that not every woman wants to be the next Bruce Lee. With that in mind, this class is not a traditional martial arts class that goes from white belt to black belt with hundreds of techniques, and it just so happens to be for women only.

> Go at your own pace
> Relaxing atmosphere
> One on one attention
> Train for the real world - not for Hollywood

We cover self defense from realistic situations that happen every day. We address all the "what if" questions our students will have such as: "What if I get grabbed from behind while jogging", "What do I do if someone breaks into my bedroom", "What if I get attacked while with my children"....Anything our students can come up with, we have a training method for it. 

Private and Semi-Private Workshops Available
