Atom Academy

Women Self-Defense Workshop


Women Self-Defense is the official Atom self-defense program for women based on the techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. In this 30-lesson program, we will teach you how to neutralize the 20 most common attacks ranging from having your hair grabbed to being pinned to the ground by a weapon-bearing assailant. 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 in the atom program employ leverage, technique, and timing, so anyone, regardless of age or athletic ability, can make them work against larger opponents.
