So how many of you strong, independent women want to kick butt this year?

Physically we mean. Want to get in shape and protect yourself, or just feel confident in body and mind?

You can, and for free too!

At Class One MMA, a martial arts gym in Brooklyn, women can now take free self-defense classes. Taught by world renowned instructors, Class One takes pride in helping out their trainees and visitors.

According to TimeOut NY, classes are held on the first and last Sundays of every month at 3:30pm. The sessions are free, and any donations made will be given to the Rape, Abuse, & Incest National Network.

We think it’s a great idea considering women’s recent strives for equality and their voices to be heard at the Women’s March last week.

Or you know, keeping up on that resolution for New Years. We’re still on it, we swear.


The free classes are at 85 4th Avenue in Brooklyn, NY.

Ready your fists, because we hope to see you there!
