At myBJJ, we believe in equal opportunity and empowerment of women, which is why we’re dedicated to teaching BJJ and self defence techniques for women at our Women’s Self Defence classes Sydney.


Why do we need women’s self defence classes?

While we’re striving to achieve gender equality in Australia, unfortunately violence against women is still common. From suffering physical violence at the hand of a partner or family member, to experiencing bullying school or in the workplace, there are many ways that women are victimised in Australia today. Our women’s BJJ classes and women’s self defence classes Sydney help women develop the skills to get out of dangerous situations, as well as feel more confident and empowered in their everyday lives.

How will BJJ help with self defence?

As a core tenet of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu’s philosophy and practice, better technique will overcome size and strength in an altercation. In our women’s BJJ classes and women’s self defence classes Sydney, you’ll learn how to defend and protect yourself against oncoming attackers, even if they’re bigger and stronger than you.

Unlike most women’s self defence techniques for women that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, our women’s BJJ classes and women’s self defence classes Sydney employ leverage, technique and timing, so that anyone – regardless of age or athletic ability – can protect themselves in dangerous situations.

What can I expect from women’s classes at myBJJ?

Our women’s self defence classes Sydney incorporate self defence techniques for women with the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. These classes exist as an on-going independent training program, as well as a fantastic supplement to our other BJJ, MMA and Kickboxing programs.

In our women’s self defence classes, you can expect to:

  • Learn effective self defence techniques for women
  • Learn essential Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques
  • Have the opportunity to practice your skills with other women
  • Improve your fitness levels
  • Increase your flexibility, agility and problem-solving skills
  • Develop greater self confidence
  • Learn in a safe, social and supportive environment

At myBJJ, we believe that while women are as capable as men, we understand the need to create a safe, women’s-only space to developing competency and confidence. As such, our women’s BJJ classes and women’s self defence classes Sydney are run by our amazing team of female coaches. Women of all ages and abilities are welcome to participate in these sessions.

When you join myBJJ Team, you don’t just join a gym, you join a supportive team. We pride ourselves on providing world-class instruction taught to a highly-regarded curriculum, as well as the social and emotional support to achieve your goals.
