Event Description

This series of ongoing women Jiu-jitsu self-defense classes will teach you effective techniques/movements to defend yourself against common attacks including chokes, grabs, and bear hugs. You will learn how NOT to be an easy target by preventing visual cues, and how to communicate to a potential assailant.

This is a special Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) course that emphasizes survival and self-defense. Many other martial arts focus on aggressive moves like kicking or punching that could further provoke a much larger assailant. BJJ is a complex, multi-faceted martial art that covers competitive sports moves as well as practical, life saving defense techniques. For the purposes of this free women self-defense course, you will learn methods to increase the likelihood that you will thwart and escape an attacker.

I am never proud to participate in violence, yet I know that each of us must care enough for ourselves that we can be ready and able to come to our own defense when and wherever needed.


― Maya Angelou, Letter to My Daughter
