We want to help empower women, so on the 25th and 26th of March we will be holding FREE women’s only self-defence seminars taught by our experienced female instructors.

Gracie Barra Arnold – 25th March at 3pm

Gracie Barra Nottingham – 26th March at 10:30am

Why should women try Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for self-defence?

Known as “The Gentle Art”, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uses leverage and proper technique to teach a smaller and weaker person to successfully defend against a bigger opponent. It is the perfect martial art for women interested in learning how to defend themselves. You don’t need to be fast or strong, you just need the proper techniques and timing.

What will you learn at our free seminars?

Our Women in Charge seminars will look at common scenarios and aggressions against women and teach you BJJ based techniques to effectively react safely against them. You will learn simple techniques that you can continue to practice at home, building muscle memory and increasing their effectiveness. When you can recognise potential threats and have a good foundation in effective self-defence, you will feel more confident in your day to day life. Spaces are limited, reserve yours now!
