Gracie Barra St Peters is offering a fun, enjoyable and professionally prepared self defense seminar exclusively for women and teenaged girls. And the best part is: IT’S FREE! 

Our FREE Women’s Self Defense Program will prepare you physically and mentally to deal with a potential attack.

In this 1.5 hours structured program, your Gracie Barra instructor will not only cover the most common attacks against women, but teach you how to attempt to prevent them, and then, if necessary, how to respond effectively!

Join us on Saturday, November 16th at 1:30 PM for an afternoon of empowerment and learning. Please be sure to wear comfortable clothing and easy to remove footwear. This event is open to the general public.
