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
Our West County and O’Fallon locations make it easy for women all over the Greater St Louis area to participate in martial arts classes close to home.
In addition to the classes we offer in the Adult Gracie Barra Program Structure, our Academy has a specialized program developed to introduce women to the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
BJJ is a martial art designed to allow a weaker opponent defeat a stronger one. It is ideal for self-defense, and is a great fit for women who are looking to protect themselves.
The Gracie Barra Women’s Program pairs an inclusive self-defense curriculum with focuses on drills that emulate realistic attack and escape/defend situations.
The techniques students learn are integrated with a strong fitness component that cant be found or offered in regular gyms.
The courses are specially designed for women and the team gatherings are an added benefit to the Gracie Barra activities. You will have the opportunity to create a strong bond between the members of the Gracie Barra Pink Team!

Womens Program Benefits
Positive and Friendly
You’ll be welcomed into a positive and friendly environment when you visit our Greater St Louis area martial arts schools. Some individuals may find martial arts as intimidating, but our classes are not. You will be greeted by a group of women; many of who will be wearing Gracie Barra uniforms with pink trim, who are excited to have you there! The instructor will go over basic drills, and after a few classes, you will be up to speed with the rest of the group. Once you master the basics, you’ll continue to enjoy the intensity of a class based on efficient defense techniques and real life scenarios.
