While women are encouraged to attend any and all of our classes, we wanted to create something that is specifically catered to the amazing women at Checkmat Phoenix. This course is designed, planned, and taught solely by Checkmat Phoenix’s female instructors, and focuses on self defense for smaller individuals facing larger attackers, reaching fitness goals, and training with like-minded women.<< Back To Programs
At Checkmat Phoenix, we are passionate about using Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to create a safer world for women and provide them with the tools needed to protect themselves. By educating women on self-defense skills that can be applied to real-life situations, we hope to decrease this terrible statistic, empower women, and bring greater awareness to issues of rape and sexual assault. Though this class focuses on several different aspects of BJJ, self-defense is our #1 priority and is incorporated into every technique and skill students learn.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a full-body workout that improves endurance, builds strength and mobility, and provides cardio that will keep your heart healthy. In fact, BJJ will boost your health in all areas of your life. BJJ has been shown to decrease stress, improve mental health, and help you get an amazing night’s sleep. Our women’s BJJ class will work every part of your body and push you out of your comfort zone. Though you’ll feel pretty tired when class is over, nothing compares to the sense of accomplishment that’ll come with it.
We get it – learning self-defense can seem intimidating. That’s why Checkmat Phoenix is committed to providing women with a BJJ training experience that is welcoming, encouraging, and uplifting. While learning self-defense can often feel like a nerve-racking and stressful undertaking, we are here to educate and prepare women in a way that is comfortable and safe. Our women’s BJJ class is an environment where women are guaranteed to feel supported by other women in their community. Checkmat Phoenix is devoted to helping you accomplish your goals and establish a new level of safety in your life.
We believe that experience and confidence go hand in hand. As you gain greater experience and a deeper understanding of how to defend yourself using the techniques of BJJ, you will feel more confident in your ability to protect yourself. Not only could this confidence help you escape a dangerous situation, but you will see it play into your day-to-day life. When you know that you can protect yourself from an attacker or get out of an unsafe situation, the way you carry yourself will change completely.
