Ground Control Jiu-Jitsu Ladies Class

Ladies Program

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is without a doubt the best martial art for a lady to learn in order to defend herself from an attacker. Our ladies jiu-Jitsu techniques are based on leverage rather than strength and physical ability. It is one of the only martial arts where a woman that has been put on he back by a larger and stronger attacker still has the ability to defend herself.

Originally developed by the Gracie family, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu promotes the principle that a smaller and weaker person can successfully defend themselves against bigger and stronger opponents using leverage and proper technique.

Because of the obvious benefits for women, Ground Control has had many ladies that are interested in learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. However, one of the problems was that the classes tend to be made up of mostly men. Some women were not comfortable getting on the mats with strange men. We fixed that by starting a program that is women only.  This gives ladies the opportunity to begin learning the art in a much more comfortable environment.

The new student will spend their first few months of training learning the basic fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  Building a good foundation is extremely important! Therefore, basic movement, position, and base will be the primary focus of the student at this stage of their training. Ground Control’s philosophy is that the students Jiu-Jitsu will only be as strong as the foundation that it is built upon in the beginning.

Students will experience results that go beyond gains in strength, flexibility, fitness or self-defense skills. By remaining truthful to the lessons learned in practice and applying them off the mats, Ground Control students experience an overall improvement on their focus, energy and general well-being.

The Ground Control Ladies Program teaches the basic principles of effective Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to the average woman while showing her how to use this in a real-life situation.

You will learn over 100 technique combinations in your first few months so be ready for the journey! You will also find strong support by the Ground Control team. Students with more experience are always there to help new members get started. By the end of class you’ll be physically tired but mentally exhilarated. Don’t get too exhausted, though–we hope to see you back the next day! Remember, you can train as much as you want.
