Hi, I am just looking for affordable ways to do any kind of martial arts. I trained in Tae Kwon Do as a teenager and dabbled in Brazillian Jiujitsu a few years ago. Now I am a graduate student just looking to get any training I can.

What Tara is saying about this Meetup Group

I go to the Sunday meet-ups as often as I can. Looks like the group is growing in popularity. I personally feel that more women pay more attention to this form of defense. It is more practical than others and works well with different body types. Other forms of defense, including ones considered more practical (ex. BJJ), emphasize techniques. This doesn't give students the flexibility to experiment with their own body type, which often differs greatly from the instructor teaching it. The group is a pretty welcoming bunch. Don't let the macho sytema videos scare you into thinking this a testosterone club. Come out and see for yourself.
