The days of going to a martial arts gym with a "survival of the fittest" mentality are over. At 417 BJJ you will learn in a controlled atmosphere alongside others who also want to learn Jiu Jitsu. We have instruction for the person wanting or needing self defense as well as the person who wishes to be a high level competitive athlete.

WOMEN'S SELF DEFENSE: A Jiu Jitsu program designed specifically for women's self defense situations


Women's self defense is much different than a man's. It is not common that women get into "street fights" over petty things. In the woman's world, self defense actually means defense against sexual assault or a sexual assault attempt. 

Women at 417 BJJ are taught to defend themselves from much larger attackers and to survive self defense situations through the use of Brazlian Jiu Jitsu techniques strictly based on leverage and timing, not speed and power. 

We hold our women's self defense program twice a year, January through March and September through November. Make sure to enroll to assure a position for yourself or your loved one.
