Women's Empowerment Self-Defense/BJJ Class
InnerStrengths offers the opportunity for women to train Jiu-Jitsu.  Although all classes at InnerStrengths are taught in a safe, warm and friendly atmosphere, we understand the difficulties a woman might encounter, especially in the first stages of training.  If you would like to try jiu-jitsu or already have found that co-ed clases are not for you, InnerStrengths provides classes that are designed soley for women.  This provides the opportunity for you to train in an environment that might be more comfortable for you while you still have the advantage of learning the same jiu-jitsu principles and techniques. 

All women's classes are taught by skilled, dedicated women who have your best interest at heart.  We want you to be successful in your training, so InnerStrengths provides an opportunity for you to utilize your knowledge and ability to the fullest.  There is a huge emphasis on the female aspect which is key in confidence building along with identifying your strengths.

Whether you are training for self-defense, competition or sport, your training will be about you and reaching your personal goal.

I have found that jiu-jitsu is a great way for me to stay in shape and relieve stress. More importantly, it helps to keep a spiritual balance in my life.

This class is designed for students to gain more knowledge on what elements need to be present in order for an assault/crime to happen. Exercises in personal safety, boundary setting and self awareness will be practiced along with learning the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The research shows having the opportunity to practice in a Women's Empowerment Self-Defense Model significantly decreases the likelihood of an assault/attack.

      Some of the skills you will learn are:​

  • Exercise the Power of the Voice.
  • Following your intuition - "That Gut Feeling"
  • How to identify a potential threat.
  • Wrist grabs and hair pulling releases.
  • Escapes from various positions.

No prior experience needed. women of all physical abilities and ages are welcome.
