Women's Program

Get empowered by our Brazil-021 Women Jiu-Jitsu program. Classes are focused on self defense techniques and sport Jiu-Jitsu, taught by a world class black belt female champion, Hannette Staack.

This class is excellent for people that are interested in learning martial arts in an environment exclusively for women.  As a self defense system few programs have proven themselves as well as BJJ.  The only way to be able to defend yourself is to regularly and consistently train the movements and techniques you will use.  

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. The Brazil-021 Women’s BJJ 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 specially designed for women like Rape Prevention, BJJ Conditioning and others, taught by a Jiu-Jitsu world champion female Hannette Staack.

Women's classes are only available at our Chicago location.

Growing up I was highly discouraged and at times forbidden from participating in competitive sports as a consequence of having overprotective parents who often exaggerated the gender differences, fragility of women, etc.

At Brazil-021, there is a place for everyone no matter your physical condition or prior experience. The Professors adapt the program to help each individual student achieve his/her maximum potential.
