    Women’s Martial Arts Program

    Learn martial arts and practical self-defense skills

    A Gracie Barra Introduction

    Thanks to our convenient Collinsville location in Illinois, it has never been easier for women of both Madison and St. Clair counties to enjoy world class martial arts instruction just minutes from home.

    Aside from all classes offered in the Adult Gracie Barra Program Structure, our school offers a set of classes designed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

    As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, BJJ is a perfect fit for women who want empowerment or are interested in learning how to protect themselves, and who wouldn’t be, right?

    Comprehensive Self-Defense

    The Gracie Barra Women’s Program combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack and escape situations.

    The techniques are complimented by a strong fitness component that is second to none compared to classes offered in regular gyms.

    Classes are specially designed for women and social “get togethers” are added benefits to the ordinary GB activities and create a strong bond between the members of the “Gracie Barra Pink Team.”

    “Girls compete against each other, but Women empower one another”
