About Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (website)
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu offers programs to accommodate everyone. Every program is structured in a beginner friendly, co-operative environment that fosters learning. Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is perfect for the average person because it does not rely on strength to subdue the aggressor, but rather uses the framework of your body and leverage techniques to allow you to overcome a stronger, more aggressive attacker.

About Gracie Bullyproof (website)
The goal of the Gracie Bullyproof program is to instill in your child unshakable confidence so they can overcome bullies without violence.
In response to the recent homicide of a Froedtert nurse who was attacked while walking to her car after work, we are offering a FREE Women Empowered Seminar to current employees of Froedtert Hospital, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin, and the Medical College of Wisconsin. The purpose of this seminar is to help expose women to the benefits of learning self-defense, and to aid in the prevention of these unfortunate occurrences happening in the future.
