We’re celebrating the holiday season at Iron Roots BJJ with amazing deals!
Martial Arts Classes make awesome gifts!
Come celebrate with us!
The Smart Defense program uses Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga, and Muay Thai kickboxing techniques. Each technique is selected to give women the best chance to fight off their attacker and/or create an opening for escape. Each of our instructors has extensive experience in at least one of the above martial arts and goes through specific Smart Defense technique training. Additionally, due to the nature of the subject matter, all of our self-defense class instructors have received survivor advocacy training through the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault. We hope to provide trauma-informed self-defense to all of our students, especially those who are sexual violence survivors. If you would like to learn more about the program please contact us today.
The program includes 8 hours of content and will be held in 2-hour blocks over the course of 4 consecutive weeks.
In addition to our normal course, we offer private sessions, small group sessions, and corporate sessions by request. Inquire for availability and pricing.
We will announce future classes as they become available. To sign up click the “register” button below and you will be taken to the Elizabeth Smart Foundation website. Please reach out if you have any questions.
Bring hope and end the victimization of sexual assault and abuse through prevention, recovery, and advocacy.
