Global Women Empowered Seminars: Huge Success

July 24, 2015

Mission Accomplished, Nearly 500 Women Begin the Journey!

On July 18, 2015, the Gracie Academy hosted 13 Women Empowered Self-Defense Seminars at Certified Training Centers around the world. We appreciate all the certified instructors who made this movement possible for nearly 500 women, and we congratulate these women on taking the first (and most difficult) step in their jiu-jitsu journeys!

If you have any words of advice for these new members of the jiu-jitsu family, leave them in a comment on the Gracie Academy Facebook.
