Self Defense for Women is a topic that isn’t talked about enough, in my opinion.
With the competition season winding down, we have time to focus on other areas of jiu-jitsu that are very important. Yemaso BJJ has teamed up with an all female organization to provide a women self defense tips and rape prevention seminar here in Sacramento. Self defense is an important skill to have. We are proud to be able to offer high quality bjj here in sacramento.
We want all women to be more confident in your abilities to avoid unpleasant and even dangerous situations. So, we will be hosting our first rape prevention and women self defense tips seminar at our Sacramento BJJ Academy on Saturday, December 1st.
The women self defense tips and rape prevention seminar will be taught by world champion Sacramento Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Marcos “Yemaso” Torregrosa. Depending on the success of this event, we wight be contacting other female organizations to hold another event. If there seems to be enough interested, this may become something we incorporate on a more regular basis to the entire public.
Unlike so many problems in the world, this is one that we can do something about: women CAN learn to defend themselves, face down an attacker and even avoid problems that could potentially escalate!
For those of you who will be a part of the women self defense tips and rape prevention seminar:
- Please wear comfortable clothing.
- Please remove all jewelry.
- Please remember to silence your phones during the seminar.
Here are some pictures of the appropriate attire to allow for ease of instruction:
