Women’s Self-Defense

Our She’Safe course teaches the universal self-defense principles of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu originated as the ultimate form of self-defense. It’s the very reason why the founders began taking on challenge matches, and then created the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Capital MMA & Elite Fitness has the only black belts in the DMV under the original Ultimate Fighting Champion – and world’s leading self-defense expert – Royce Gracie.

Our course empowers women to be proactive in order to prevent attack situations, and, in the unfortunate and rare event of an actual attack, provides women with a plan of action and the necessary training to successfully defend themselves and get away.

Participation in our course will provide you with knowledge and training in the “Three Levels”:

LEVEL 1 = Predator Assesses “Victim Potential” | Core Strategy = Prevention Defenses

LEVEL 2 = Predator Attempts to Subdue a Target | Core Strategy = Rapid Response Defenses

LEVEL 3 = Predator Attempts to Control and Exhaust a Target | Core Strategy = Ambush Response Defenses, Including the “False Surrender”

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.

Private classes are also available on request.

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.”
