Women’s Self-Defense

Do you want to learn proven self-defense? Our classes empower women to be proactive in order to prevent attack situations, and, in the unfortunate and rare event of an actual attack situation, provide women with a plan of action and the necessary training to successfully defend themselves and get away.

Participation in our course will help you understand the “Four Levels”:

LEVEL 1 = Prevention Defenses
A predator assesses “Victim Potential.”

LEVEL 2 = Rapid Response Defenses
A predator initiates an assault on a “Target.”

LEVEL 3 = Ambush Response Defenses
A predator attempts to control and exhaust a “Target”; in addition to survival techniques, you’ll learn the “False Surrender.”

LEVEL 4 = Survival and Recovery
Victims must have the support of their communities, and while we never blame them, we always learn from their stories

We also offer regularly scheduled Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai classes for women, and we have very supportive – super friendly – coed classes. Please check our Weekly Schedules for details.

Tracy Miller Finds Supportive Instructors For The Proven Martial Arts

“The staff at Capital is dedicated to the growth of women only programs. I came to the women only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Self-Defense classes as a stranger, and the staff and students immediately welcomed me with open arms.

Capital is an incredibly positive and supportive environment, and is a great place to tap into one’s potential, both mentally and physically. It’s also more than that. It’s a place where you can feel safe enough to fall and be picked back up. I feel extremely lucky and blessed to have such amazing teachers and teammates, especially since all of them have a deep respect and passion for the arts.”
