The renowned Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy runs a women's self-defense program that Eve is actively involved in as an instructor.
"I'm very passionate about it because it changed my life in many ways," she said.
She talked about the confidence it has given her on a daily basis and touted the power of the program.
She stated flat-out, "Every woman in the world needs to know this program."
Beyond the physical techniques of the jiu-jitsu elements, the Gracie Women Empowered program "encompasses everything" including the necessary "mindset and the awareness principles." It also includes what one should do if their assailant is someone they know.
Eve laid out several important aspects of the program in an article in Cosmopolitan magazine. The Gracie program and jiu-jitsu itself work with leverage, allowing someone to defend themselves against a larger opponent, especially when "you are at the bottom of the fight."
The Divas champ, who has trained in jiu-jitsu for about five years, told me, "As women, we have to accept that our opponent is going to be much bigger than us."
Male attackers "want to get us to the ground and eventually between our legs and we have to know what to do in that position."
Not every woman can be as powerful and athletic as Eve, but they don't need to be. The program she is so proud of can help teach women how to escape and how to protect themselves even before an assault.
Eve said she'd happy if young girls look up to her because of her work with WWE. One thing she wants them to know and understand is that "it's really important to take your own personal safety into your own hands."
Her involvement with the Gracie program is an example of Eve using her star power to better her world, something she's made a habit of doing with charities like Feed the Homeless and St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
