Women Empowered is the Gracie Self-defense Program for Women. Originally, this 15-lesson program could only be accessed at Gracie University HQ in Torrance, CA, but now, the entire program is available online, so you can complete the course from the comfort of your own home under the direct guidance of Ryron and Rener Gracie, along with special guest instructors Sage Gracie and Eve Gracie! The Women Empowered program consists of 15 lessons – 10 Core Lessons and 5 Advanced Lessons. To ensure that your at-home learning experience emulates the live training students receive at Gracie University HQ in Torrance, CA, we present the Women Empowered lessons online in precisely the same format that you would experience if you were to receive private lessons from a Gracie University instructor. Each lesson features a series of simplified drills or “Slices,” along with a Reflex Development Drill designed to help you achieve muscle memory. We also spend time in each lesson discussing the guiding principles of the techniques so you can modify and adapt them to the specific circumstances of any situation you find yourself in. Once you are 100% confident in your execution of all the Women Empowered techniques we invite you to take the Pink Belt Qualification Test via our Video Evaluation Process. Digitally record your performance of all variations of the featured techniques, and then upload the video in the 'Women Empowered' section of the online Testing Center. Once uploaded, a Gracie University instructor will evaluate your test, and if your performance meets Gracie University standards, we will mail you a Women Empowered graduation certification and an official pink belt to symbolize your accomplishment!
