Jiu-Jitsu for Everyone

Women In Charge


October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month and Gracie Barra West Cobb will be raising awareness by hosting a series of FREE women’s self-defense seminars: “WOMEN IN CHARGE” During a 4-week period, local women are invited to participate in Gracie Barra’s “WOMEN IN CHARGE” program, a FREE self-defense seminar series specifically designed for women, taught by Gracie Barra certified instructors. Attending all 4 seminars is not mandatory, but highly encouraged. Seminars will take place at Gracie Barra West Cobb on Saturdays, 1-2pm, 4 consecutive weekends in a row:

  • Saturday, October 11th – 1pm
  • Saturday, October 18th – 1pm
  • Saturday, October 25th – 1pm
  • Saturday, November 1st – 1pm

Violence against women, including domestic violence, rape and assault, is all too common. GBWC wants to be part of the solution by providing the community with FREE seminars in self-defense techniques specifically designed for these situations.

The self-defense curriculum begins with a discussion of the concerns that each participant has in regard to safety. The program clearly covers how the most common attacks against women are typically executed, and how effectively react to each situation. We stress appropriate responses to physical attacks, and how to avoid conflicts and harmful physical confrontations.

The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu techniques that we teach provide a foundation for effective self-defense and good conditioning. These are keys to self-esteem and self-confidence. We hope to help women to develop the mental and physical tools they need to stay in top shape, as well as teaching effective ways to evade, neutralize, and overcome an attacker, if necessary.

What do I wear? Come dressed in workout clothes.

What’s the facility and atmosphere like? Our facility is clean, and our environment is positive, professional and well-structured. We have a reception area, changing areas, locker room and plenty of seating to observe classes.
