Womens Self Defence


We welcome you to the Irvine Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) Women’s Self-Defense Program

Our Women’s Self-Defense program in Irvine provides realistic, effective self-defense training for today’s busy female. The mission at Irvine Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Women’s Self-Defense Program is simple – empowering you to fight back against an attacker.

The paradox of self-defense is that the more prepared you are, the less likely you are to need it. When you can recognize and respond effectively to potentially dangerous situations, you are more confident in your every day activities. You are also less likely to become a target of an attacker.

At our Self-Defense Program in Irvine we believe that women’s self-defense training is more than just kicking and punching. That someone else will protect us. Unfortunately, the statistics show that the “someone else” usually turns out to be our attacker/abuser.

We face multiple challenges and obstacles as women when seeking self-defense and personal safety training.

That’s where our Women’s Self-Defense Program at Irvine Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) excels. We present information in clear, concise class formats so you can easily walk out of class and immediately implement the self-defense training strategies you’ve learned.
