Women's Self-Defense/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Women’s Self-Defense/Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is the ideal form of self-defense for women. Using technique and leverage, women can learn how to defend themselves against larger, stronger assailants. At Fabio Novaes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, we can equip you to defend yourself in situations most commonly faced by women in a class taught by women and geared toward women.

If you couldn't tell by the flyer, I am very happy to announce that we will be starting a women's class at Fabio's and that I am going to have the honor of teaching it. I am very excited!

One of the reasons why I think a lot of women are put off by bjj is the fact that they have to wrestle around with strange, sweaty, scary, hairy men. I think that if they were given the opportunity to try bjj out in a class of only women, they would feel less self conscious and be more willing to give it a shot. We'll see if the theory holds up!

I do think that grappling bigger, stronger men is very helpful. You have to have the techniques right to make them work on someone larger and stronger. Being outmatched by weight and strength is exactly what bjj is designed to equip you for. But for some women, that idea is a deal breaker.

We are going to start classes in July 5th. I will keep you updated on the progress!! :)

Great job. I agree that more women may be willing to try BJJ in an environment where it is mostly women. When they become comfortable they may cross over to regular classes as well.

That's really cool! Congrats on doing this, and I hope you get tons and tons of women in there :-)

Brilliant! It's cool that a bunch of us in the BJJ blogosphere have started teaching now. I'll be interested to hear about your syllabus, who attends, how many, warm ups, drills etc. :D

Hello, I would like to congratulate everyone involved in this project of self-defense for women. In my opinion this issue should be treated more seriously by our authorities and our leaders. It is very important for our women and know how to use basic self defense against his aggressors, both on domestic violence which in my opinion is the most serious of all, as in our cities. Thank you Daniel Sesseven

You’ve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
