Women’s Martial Arts Program
Should a girl know how to fight? Why should a female be part of Gracie Barra?
A Gracie Barra Introduction
Thanks to our convenient Chesterfield location right off Olive Blvd., and 141, it has never been easier for women of Chesterfield, Creve Coeur, Ballwin, Maryland Heights, Kirkwood, Clayton, and Town and Country to enjoy world class martial arts instruction just minutes from home.
Aside from all classes offered in the Adult Gracie Barra Program Structure, our school offers a set of classes designed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
As a martial art designed to allow the weaker to defeat the stronger, BJJ is a perfect fit for women who are interested in learning how to protect themselves, and who wouldn’t be, right?
The Gracie Barra Women’s Program combines a comprehensive self-defense curriculum with emphasis on drills that simulate realistic attack and escape situations.
The techniques are complemented by a strong fitness component that is second to none compared to classes offered in regular gyms.
Classes are specially designed for women and social “get togethers” are added benefits to the ordinary GB activities and create a strong bond between the members of the “Gracie Barra Pink Team.”

Womens Program Benefits
Positive and Friendly
You’ll notice a very positive and friendly environment when you enter our school. Although martial arts can be intimidating for women, this class is definitely not intimidating. You will find a group of women, some of them wearing GB uniforms with pink trim, who are excited to be there and excited to have you there. The instructor will run several basic drills and after a few classes you will catch up with the rest of the group. Once you master the basics you will really enjoy the intensity of a class based on effective self-defense techniques and real life scenarios.
