Women's Programs

In times past, the Martial Arts were a thing usually generalized as a male-oriented pursuit. And while that was not truly the case, these arts were definitely a predominantly male activity.

Beginning in the 1980's, the Martial Arts industry became modernized, and at the same time a great number of Martial Arts gyms and schools began to increase their level of professionalism to match their already high level of technical quality.

The immediate result was that schools around the country and elsewhere saw an explosive increase of women among their ranks. Since then, many Martial Arts programs have both men and women in equal numbers, and there are many cases where women are dominant gender.

The need of some variety of self-defense training for today's woman is a basic and apparent facet of martial culture, less obvious may be the fitness and wellness capacity of these arts. The Martial Arts are also a fascinating and profound realm of human possibility, empowering a person to ascend beyond ordinary human limitation.

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu has a compelling history surrounding a certain Helio Gracie, who due to being a sickly young man, was unable to execute many existing Jiu-jitsu techniques due to their reliance on a certain degree of raw strength.

His reformation and distillation of this body of knowledge led to the evolution of the Brazilian style of Jiu-jitsu, a method which can be employed effectively against a large and strong attacker regardless of one's size and strength. Chokes, joint locks, and positions of control native to Jiu-jitsu are combined with techniques from Wrestling, Judo, and other grappling methods to achieve a complete and unparalleled system of self-defense.
