Jiu Jitsu changes lives

As a female grapplerJiu Jitsu has changed my life in so many positive ways and it is great to see more women joining the Jiu Jitsu community.

Jiu Jitsu has given me and other women more confidence and strength.

Rolling challenges females and puts us in uncomfortable situations that only helps women grow physically and mentally on and off the mats.

Women in Jiu Jitsu

Self Defense

Women are taught self defense through Jiu Jitsu and they learn how to protect themselves and others around them.

There are unfortunately cases of assault and it good to know women are prepared for such incidents.
The Jiu Jitsu community has grown a lot over the past few years and women contribute so much to the martial art. Grappling is a very male dominated sport and women help diversify Jiu Jitsu.

Females are not as physically strong compared to our male counter parts and rely heavily on technique which helps close that gap.

Be more technical

Rolling with women helps teaches people how to rely less on strength and more on technique improving everyone’s game overall.

Women in Jiu Jitsu give young girls strong female role models to look up. There are so many diverse females in Jiu Jitsu that are not seen on your typical magazine cover or popular tv show, These women show young girls it okay to look different, be strong and defend themselves.

Jiu Jitsu is a great martial art that is continuously growing and developing and it’s great to see women grow and become more involved.
