Women’s Self Defense
Women’s self defense is offered at Savarese BJJ Academy. Our women’s program was specifically designed to prepare women for real life threatening situations. In addition, our self defense techniques provide the knowledge and skills for any woman to escape from her attacker, whether she is on her feet or on the ground.
This course is unique because it does not rely exclusively on punching and kicking like other forms of martial arts. Punching and kicking do not represent an effective strategy against an assailant who is bigger, stronger and capable of hitting back. In addition, they are useless on the ground, which is where an attacker is most likely to assault a woman.
It is structured to achieve maximum comfort for females interested in pursuing Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This class offers a relaxed, non-threatening environment ideal for the beginner or intermediate student to grow and learn quickly under the guidance of experienced and highly-accomplished female instructors.
Men are not allowed in the room where the classes will be taking place unless they are an instructor. We understand that some women feel intimidated stepping inside a martial arts school with more experienced students or with the majority of male students. Due to this fact, we decided to offer many classes just for women, taught by women.
