Feminist Self-Defense


Rachel Piazza is a TEDx speaker, award-winning activist, college educator and published author. As a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner--with over a decade of experience--she helps women ignite and celebrate their power.


Combining her strengths as an athlete and scholar, Rachel developed Feminist Self-Defense, an empowerment-based self-defense curriculum. Her fun yet effective approach has been lauded by leaders in the anti-violence field.

Rachel believes each individual is the expert of their own lives and that the blame and shame always belongs to the perpetrator.


Feeling powerful can have a tangible impact on a person’s life – and ultimately their ability to defend themselves. While Rachel acknowledges that only men can stop sexual assault, she wants to give women more choices when responding to potential threats.


This women-power fueled program will leave participants feeling uplifted and powerful from the inside out.
