In addition to the adult classes offered in the Gracie Barra Ottawa Program Structure, our school offers a set of women’s self defense classes designed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
BJJ is a perfect fit for women who are interested in learning how to protect themselves because it combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack-and-escape situations. The techniques taught are complemented by a strong fitness component that is second to none in comparison to other classes offered in regular gyms. If you want a workout that will train you for so much more – then Gracie Barra Ottawa is the place for you.
We also offer specialty women’s self-defense classes such as our Sexual Assault Prevention and BJJ Conditioning classes, which are an added benefit to our everyday schedules. Enjoy social get-togethers that create a strong bond between Gracie Barra Ottawa’s Pink Team and join a community of like-minded women that train hard in their self-defense practice.

Although martial arts and joining a new gym can be intimidating, the Gracie Barra Ottawa Women’s self defense program is definitely not. You will find a group of girls, some of them wearing a pink GB uniform, who are excited to be there and excited to have you join. The instructor will run several basic drills and after only a few classes you will catch up with the rest of the group. Once you master the basics you will really enjoy the intensity of a class based on effective self-defense techniques and real life scenarios.
