Woman’s Self Defense – UNTOUCHABLE!

Untouchable! is the Gracie Jiu Jitsu based self-defense program for women available exclusively at Scranton MMA. This ten week program is based on the original teachings of Royce Gracie as first previewed in the highly acclaimed Rapesafe course. Under the direct guidance of Royce Gracie trained instructors you can expect the highest quality results from this program.

At Scranton MMA we know that women’s self-defense is not just a set of techniques; it’s a state of mind, and it begins with the knowledge that you are worth defending. No matter what you say or do, you are never at fault if sexually assaulted. You have the power within you to defeat a sexual predator, and Untouchable! will bring it out of you. Your first and most important line of defense is a heightened sense of awareness. Untouchable! teaches you the most common strategies used by assailants so you can prevent attacks before they happen. Of course, no matter how diligently you practice awareness and avoidance techniques, someone might slip through your defenses and attack you. Regardless of your age or physical condition, you can defend yourself, and Untouchable! will give you the tools and the confidence to make it happen.

Although there are many other academies claim to have a women’s self-defense program, Untouchable! is unique in that it is effective for all women, and it is the only self-defense program that effectively addresses what to do all phases of a sexual assault.

Untouchable! consists of 10 lessons over 10 weeks– each lesson features a series of simplified drills along with a reflex development scenarios 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.

You will learn how to escape the most common control holds, including wrist grabs, chokeholds, and bear hugs as well as master the critical physical and psychological techniques that will enable you to avoid panic and escape from an attacker who has pinned you to the ground. You will also learn how to defend against sudden attacks from the rear or against a predator armed with a gun or knife.

The next round of Untouchable! begins in June and sign ups have already begun! For further information contact the academy today.
