When it comes to self defense, BJJ empowers a smaller individual to fight against a larger opponent. But the advantages don’t stop there.



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 Upper Academy & Alliance Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This course is designed, planned, and taught solely by Upper Academy & Alliance Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu’s female instructors, and focuses on self defense for smaller individuals facing larger attackers, reaching fitness goals, and training with like-minded women.



 BJJ focuses on ground level altercations – utilizing holds, throws, blows, and a variety of submission techniques.



Though the application of self-defense is at the core of every class we teach, our No-Gi Jiu Jitsu course prepares students like no other.



Why every student should do at least one private per month!​ Your private classes will be specifically designed to fit your needs and goals.
