Fighting Chance Seattle
At a Glance

We designed our practice, and our dojo specifically, as one answer to some tough questions: How do we grow, get stronger, and become more confident? How do we inhabit our body? How do we find joy and community? Where do we go to be seen, heard and valued? How do we change?

 

Our programs, curated by instructor Jordan Giarratano, are grounded in truth, and based on extensive research by some of the best seekers the world has known.

 

Designed for Survival is a radical and holistic approach to self-defense instruction: embodied, feminist-oriented, and offering practical real world skills.

 

Karate Without Armor is a journey to empowerment, self-mastery, self-discovery, and transformation through ongoing martial arts training.

 

Our Dojo is the container for our work, a place of belonging, a place for us to train hard, to help each other, and to model the kind of world we want to live in. Our Dojo is a sacred space: a place to grow; to be open and vulnerable, courageous and powerful.

 

Every human has a fire inside. Whether it burns bright or dims is decided by how we choose to face the challenges in our world. Whether for one workshop; or a longer journey, we invite you to reclaim your fire.

We want to work with you

We adapt our teaching to you. To what you need. We all have different ways of learning. We all have different body types. We will never leave you feeling inadequate or unsupported. When you train with us, you will be seen and heard. Our curriculum is systematic and organized, so we always know what comes next. Which means we can meet you where you are to help you progress to the next level. Join us!
