Conor McGregor’s coach shared the initiative on Instagram earlier today, encouraging women to avail of the free classes at any point.

Introducing a FREE women’s only BJJ Self Defence class at @sbgireland starting this Saturday 11am. This will be on-going and on at the same time every Saturday. Don’t worry if you miss this weekend, you can start any time.

John, who is the founder of Straight Blast Gym Ireland, explained that the motivation for the classes came from recent high-profile events pertaining to the safety of women on our nation’s streets.

This class is free to any girls from any other clubs that want to supplement their training. In light of recent horrific attack in Dublin by a deranged individual we feel the need to do something to give women a fighting chance. Come down and meet @jaqueoalmeiida and see if you enjoy it.

And listen, there’s no pressure.

Feel free to drop in and watch one if you’re considering taking it up.

The post has been met with enthusiasm from thousands of Instagram users.
