Athena's Shield

TBD | 11am

12 hrs | $150

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.

Jiu Jitsu 101

Fridays | 6pm

Looking to continue your self defense education in jiu jitsu, but not ready to commit to the larger classes? Coach Mattie teaches a co-ed jiu jitsu 101 class focused on the basics of jiu jitsu, building a strong foundational understanding around techniques. This is a perfect opportunity to expand your jiu jitsu knowledge and use of techniques, all while growing your confidence. No experience necessary. Ask about our Jiu Jitsu 101 classes!

* While enrolled in our 6 week Athena's Shield Course, this class is included at no additional charge.

Cardio Kickboxing


​COMING SOON! Health, cardio, strength, technique, endurance, it is all apart of self defense. Self defense is not only about defending the life you have, but also includes building a life you love. That is why we will soon be incorporating a cardio kickboxing class at our Jacksonville location. We are very excited about this new endeavor. Stay tuned for updates or message us if you would be interested!
