Most of our classes are co-ed and everyone is equal on the mat. Those who don’t understand that should be prepared to find themselves humbled!

  However, we believe that reserving special times to address women’s particular needs can help you better achieve your goals. For this reason, we also offer a weekly Women’s Fundamentals class and a monthly Women’s Open Mat where ladies and girls from all over San Diego can connect and train! We also offer frequent Women’s Self Defense Seminars.


Our Women’s Jiu Jitsu program is for any woman who wants to:

Get fit and lose weight

Learn in a women’s only environment

Train in self defense and learn how to protect yourself

Focus on techniques to counter bigger, stronger opponents

Women’s Jiu Jitsu – Curriculum for Women

Gracie Jiu Jitsu empowers women, builds strength through adversity, and prepares you for actual, life-threatening situations.

Our self defense techniques provide the knowledge and skills for women to escape an attacker. Striking a bigger, stronger assailant isn’t an effective strategy. Striking also won’t likely be an option once you’re on the ground, where a rapist/attacker is most likely to assault a woman.

But most assailants have no training to fight on the ground, and that’s where Gracie Jiu Jitsu gives you the greatest advantage. Learn to create leverage for escapes, as well as submissions to subdue your attacker – regardless of size.

Jiu Jitsu is also one of the most complete forms of exercise. You’ll notice increases in strength, endurance, flexibility, stress reduction, and fat burning from the very start.

Our Women’s Jiu Jitsu program is a place where ladies can feel comfortable and just train with other women. Take advantage of your free trial and try it out for yourself!
