Women Only Classes

gracie botany women only classes

Gracie Botany’s Girls Only Gi lesson is exactly what it sounds like: a class that’s exclusively for women. Women are an important part of any academy, and classes like this are to make everyone feel as comfortable as possible on the mats.

This class takes place every Friday at 5:15 pm. This leads directly into our 6pm class on Fridays, the All Levels Gi lesson.

Each class retains a similar structure to a traditional one. There’s a warm up, technique training and then drilling. Techniques stretch from beginner to advanced, as we cater to a range of skill levels.

Jiu-Jitsu is a powerful self-defense system that can be used by people of all shapes and sizes. It’s particularly helpful for women, who can use the principles of timing and leverage to overcome significant weight differences.

But as important as training with larger opponents is, the Girls Only Gi class gives women a chance to practice their skills against other students of a similar size. It’s a safe, inclusive zone, one where all girls and women are welcome.

Is Brazilian Jiu-JItsu effective women self-defence?

Certainly! Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is an effective self-defence system for women, and it can help to protect you from physical attacks. Additionally, BJJ provides a number of other benefits that include improved balance and coordination, increased muscle strength and stamina, better breathing control, better communication skills, stress relief… the list goes on!

BJJ also has several female-specific techniques that are tailored specifically to aid in defending against assault. For example, the chokes used in BJJ often render an assailant unable to breathe or speak which can buy you time to get away safely. And finally, many times grappling positions allow you to take your opponent down with less chance of injury.

There are countless reasons why learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a good idea for any woman looking for self-defence options. So don’t wait – begin your journey today!
