Women’s Self-defense That Actually Works

Since the beginning of time, many women have fallen victim to vile male attackers mostly due to a size discrepancy and a lack of effective self-defense techniques.

To remedy the latter, the Gracie Academy has created a Jiu-Jitsu based self-defense curriculum called the Gracie Women Empowered program.

This particular program places emphasis on the 15 most typical threats against women. The defense techniques are predominantly leverage based and they even include solutions to properly thwart the pulling of hair.

In addition to physical training, the Gracie Women Empowered program teaches the ‘psychology of an assault’. With the awareness of said psychology, proper boundaries can be set and intentions can be assessed before an incident ever occurs.

The program is designed to give women the confidence, awareness, and technical skill set to not only survive but to avoid life threatening situations. If you have a mom, sister, wife, and or daughter and would like to inspire them to become an ’empowered women’ then visit a Gracie Certified Training Center to get started.

  1. I’ll second that. ALL of the women (both daughters) in my life who have wanted it now have this program. It makes no difference whether you ‘drink the koolaid or not. You owe it to your loved ones to at least put the idea in their minds and give them the means to protect themselves when you are not there.
