Join Rachel and Dina, two certified pink-belt Gracie Women Empowered instructors, for a free women’s self-defense seminar. This seminar will cover the psychological and physical aspects of self-defense by teaching beginner-friendly Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques in a fun and collaborative training environment. Most self-defense systems rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination.
The techniques in this session instead employ leverage, techniques, and timing, so anyone (regardless of age or athletic ability) can make them work against larger opponents. No previous martial arts experience is required. By end of the seminar, you will feel empowered.
Open to all women and non-binary individuals who are undergraduate and graduate students.
