New 8-Week Women’s Self-Defense Class Starts September 9, 2017

Women's self-defense class at BFJJC Phoenix AZA new session of the 8-week A.C.T. Women’s Self-Defense class in Phoenix begins on September 9, 2017. The self-defense techniques in the program are drawn from an array of martial arts and are selected for their effectiveness and ease of use in escaping the most common attacks against women. This is a perfect mother daughter activity, and a must-have for all female high school and college students.

The women’s self-defense classes are explicitly not martial arts classes, and the only males allowed to attend are co-instructors who ensure you’re practicing against realistic male size and strength. Please see our Frequently Asked Questions page for more details on the self-defense classes.

How Much Do the Classes Cost?

All classes in this session are offered on a donation basis as cost should never be a barrier for women to learn how to defend themselves. Most people donate $5 to $10 per class, however no donation is needed to attend classes in this session.

Where and When are the Classes Held?

All women’s self-defense classes in this session are generously hosted at Black Flag Jiu-Jitsu Club, located on the southwest corner of West Northern Avenue and 35th Avenue in Phoenix.

All classes begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday mornings, and end promptly at 10:00 a.m. Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes early so you are settled and ready to start class promptly at 9:00 a.m.
