Every women is a badass! Come unlock your potential on January 25th, 2020, as we open 10th Planet Redlands up to Jiu Jitsu Instructors and Badasses, Lila and Dawna, for a Women’s Self Defense Seminar. This Seminar is Donation Based, so every dollar raised little counts toward a good cause, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to “Building a Generation,” a organization located in Redlands, aimed at educating, providing resources and preventing child abuse.
About Lila Smadja-Cruz and Dawna Gonzales:
Lila and Dawna became training partners and quickly became friends during Muay Thai Kickboxing classes in 2007. Shortly after they started to add jiu jitsu classes to their training regimen. The style of jiu jitsu they trained in was called 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu, a style in which one doesn’t wear a traditional gi, hence the term no-gi jiu jitus.
Lila and Dawna became two of the first female students to train under Jiu Jitsu Master Eddie Bravo and earn the ranks of black and brown belt, respectively. After a decade of pushing eachother, and experiencing the empowering metamorphosis jiu jitsu has given them, Lila and Dawna knew they had to share their found passion with other women. They formed 10PWSD (10th Planet Women’s Self Defense) in 2016 in order to become ambassadors of jiu jitsu. Their aim is to educate women in not only the self defense and sport aspects of jiu jitsu, but more importantly to help other women discover their own power.
The Women’s Only Self Defense seminar will take place on location at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu Redlands.
