Women in Jiu Jitsu and Other Combat Sports
Jiu Jitsu (The Gentle Art of Self-Defense)
Welcome to Girl-Jitsu, a company that proudly supports women and girls who train in jiu jitsu and other combat sports. We encourage females of all ages to empower themselves by training in jiu jitsu, a discipline specifically designed for the smaller, oftentimes weaker individual, who finds herself in a precarious situation against a larger attacker. Jiu jitsu emphasizes leverage and momentum as opposed to strength to fight off an aggressor. It is one of the most practical forms of self-defense when utilized in a real-life scenario. We hope you enjoy your time exploring our site and learning about our company.
Girl-Jitsu is always looking for a few more good women to contribute articles to our site. We pride ourselves on being a platform for females in jiu jitsu — and other combat sports — to have their voices heard. Share your opinions, experiences, advice and thoughts with other ladies across the globe. This is also a great opportunity to network and learn from others who put in time on the mat. Send articles (300+) words — with pictures — to firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you. Happy training!
