In this 20-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the most common attacks ranging from having your arm grabbed to being pinned to the ground. The most vunnrable place for a woman is being pinned to the ground with no way to escape. Each one-hour lesson addresses two to three techniques. You can start the program at any time and participate in any class without previous experience. Unlike most self-defense systems that rely heavily on strength, speed, and coordination, the techniques our program uses leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents. Once you complete the program, you may test for promotion to Pink Belt!
Law enforcement officials and survivors of sexual assault helped us identify the most common attacks that a male assailant is likely to use on a woman. From arm-grabs, bear hugs and choke-holds and weapon defenses, this program covers it all.
We have divided the 20 techniques into 12 one-hour classes so that you can complete the course at your own pace. We designed each lesson so that you can start at any point in the course. As a result, you can start the program at any time and complete the 10 lessons in any order. Upon enrolling, we will issue you a attendance card on which we will track your progress every step of the way.
Once you complete each of the 12 lessons twice, you will qualify to participate in the Reflex Development (RD) classes where you will learn how to combine the 20 techniques to address the most common occurrences in a real self-defense situation.
Once you complete each of the lessons four times, and you’ve completed at least four Reflex Development Classes, you are eligible to test for promotion to Pink Belt! During this 30-minute test, we will assess your execution of all 20 essential techniques. If your performance meets Zenith Authentic Brazilian Jiu jitsu Academy standards, you will qualify for promotion to pink belt. As a pink belt, you will be more than ready to move on to the our Adult Self Defense program should you choose to continue the jiu-jitsu journey!
