Women Empowered is the official Gracie self-defense program for women – a program that changed my life so significantly that I now dedicate myself to teaching it. In this 15-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 15 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant.

Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques in the Women Empowered program employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents.

Once you complete the Women Empowered program, you may take a timed proficiency test, and should your performance meet Gracie Academy standards, you will be awarded the pink belt as a symbol of your accomplishment!
