On Saturday mornings during October, local women are invited to participate in the “WOMEN IN CHARGE PROGRAM”. A Self Defense course, specifically designed for women.
The free program, open to the public, covers techniques and methods to prevent and respond to most common aggressions, and provides an introduction to basic self-defense aspects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Classes are held at the Gracie Barra Santa Barbara Academy, located downtown at 1014 State Street.
The final meeting of the Self Defense series will be held on Saturday October 26th at 12:00 PM. A closing ceremony will be held on the same day, and participants who attended all four class sessions will receive a certificate of completion and a coupon good for 30 days of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training.
