Women's Self Defence


As a coach I have a strong belief in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Self Defence, Its without a doubt the most hands on form of self defence that can be learnt without kicking and punching yet you can effectively learn how to restrict an attack and practice this during class in live situations without chance of injury.


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is very hands on and close contact which will stop Women from wanting to learn yet if your'e wanting to learn good Self Defence it's important to learn to grapple. Jiu Jitsu is mostly about closing the distance to be safe and learning to restrict your opponents movement.


Our classes are mixed but if that isn't for you in the beginning we are going to organise a Women's only class. Please email or call if you're interested or feel free to come down and visit our Academy and see how the classes run.
