In a perfect world, women wouldn't need self-defense because men wouldn't perpetrate these crimes — but the world is far from perfect. The Gracie Women Empowered program is a jiu-jitsu-based women's self-defense system which addresses the 15 most common threats against women. In addition to leverage-based physical techniques, women are taught to use the "psychology of an assault" to set boundaries, assess intentions and deter attacks before they happen!
