Saturdays. Athena's Shield is a six week self defense course focused on the application of jiu jitsu in self defense scenarios. This 12 hr course is broken down into 2 hour sessions covering how to protect yourself from an attack using jiu jitsu. Females only.
In this class we focused first on the aspect of awareness / avoidance, your number one means of protection, and second on understanding how to defend yourself in an attack (more closely looking at rape situations) via the use of jiu jitsu. Secure your spot today while prices are low!
*In addition, during the 6 weeks you are enrolled in this course, you are welcome and encouraged to participate in the Friday Jiu Jitsu 101 course at no additional cost.

Also, if you have taken our 6 week course, you are welcome to drop in and refresh on those skills. We only ask that you reach out first and make sure we have space available that day.
