What is jiu-jitsu? Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art based on the principles of leverage and timing. It trains students in practical self-defense techniques that conserve energy, while forcing attackers to waste energy. Students are trained to end fights through achieving control of an attacker, finishing with a choke-hold, and/or making space to get away.

Will I learn what to do if my attacker has a weapon? No. Weapon training is very advanced due to the extremely high risk factor. There are moves to help fend off an attacker with a weapon, however, we will not be going over these techniques during the seminar. If you'd like to learn more, sign up for our Women's Self Defense course.

So what will I learn? We will be going over a few techniques addressing some of the most common attacks a woman encounters. These may include (but are not limited to): being grabbed and pulled, being choked, and being pinned to the ground.
