Women’s Self-Defense and Empowerment Seminar

Straight Blast Gym Sandy Springs is hosting a free Women’s Self Defense and Empowerment Seminar April 19th from 2PM – 4PM


This will be the first SBG Women’s Self-Defense and Empowerment Seminar taught at our newest location in Sandy Springs but, this isn’t our first rodeo.  Coach Phillipe Gentry and his coaching staff have taught numerous self-defense and martial arts seminars to women, police and military.

The April 19th Seminar in Sandy Springs will be taught by Straight Blast Gym Atlanta Head Coach, Phillipe Gentry.  Phillipe is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt and retired MMA fighter. He’s won numerous gold medals including the 2009 PAN AMs and he is undefeated in Mixed Martial Arts.  Don’t be intimidated!  Coach Philipe’s passion is bringing true functional martial arts to everyday folks like you.


In addition to training numerous mixed martial arts champions, Coach Phillipe trains kids, women and executives that have no desire of ever competing. True functional martial arts transcends sport vs self-defense making them effective in any scenario.

The Women’s Self Defense Seminar is taught in 4 sections:

  1. Assault Repellant – It’s been researched and proven, that predators prey on the weak.  In this section you’ll learn how to carry yourself in ways that deter predators so that you can stop an altercation before it starts.
  2. Verbal Jiu Jitsu – This could be the most important part of the seminar.  Here you’ll learn what to say and how to say it while positioning yourself in a safe way.  You’ll determine your bubble and the importance of protecting it.
  3. Houdini Escapes – Should someone grab you inappropriately, you’ll need to know how to escape. In this section, you’ll learn the same techniques used by professional fighters to get out of buddy locks and wrist grabs.
  4. Get on Up! – Jiu Jitsu is the only art that teaches people how to fight from their back but, until you learn it, you need to know how to Get on Up!  The proper way to create space and stand up, will be taught in this section.

At Straight Blast Gym, we’re all about teaching the real deal stuff and we like to do it in fun loving and relaxed environment.  We don’t coach by yelling and screaming at people.  Instead you’ll find one of the most encouraging and motivating groups of people around.  So, grab a friend and come join us April 19th.
