International Women’s Day Celebration and Fundraising Event at Brazil-021 Arlington Heights

In recognition of International Women’s Day, Brazil-021 School of Jiu-Jitsu will be hosting a special two-seminar event at our Arlington Heights location on March 6th, 2016.  This event celebrates empowerment in women and the growth of female presence in the jiu-jitsu community, and it will provide support to our own female competitors.  Professor Hannette Staack and brown-belt instructors, Sharon Gosun, Kristen Martin, and Kristin Mikkelson will share their knowledge in women’s self-defense and competitive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.  This event will serve as a fundraiser for our female competitors dedicated to competing at the highest level and representing our jiu-jitsu family to the world!  Take a look at our schedule and see which event(s) you would like to attend!
