Dedicated to Supporting Female Combat Atheletes
Looking for Contributing Writers!
Girl-Jitsu is looking for a few more good women to contribute articles to our site. We pride ourselves on being a platform for females in 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 — with pictures — to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hey, ladies, Girl-Jitsu wants to know about your upcoming events and tournaments in your area. We want to give as much exposure to events primarily for women or led by women. We also want to list as many tournaments as possible so other women can learn of the numerous opportunities out there to compete. If you know of any upcoming events and tournaments, let us know. Email us at email@example.com. Happy training!
What’s tougher than training and competing regularly? Training and competing regularly while being a mom! Girl-Jitsu wants to highlight those Pretty.Tough. moms who somehow find the time to do it all: train, compete, work and raise a family. If you know of any email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can spotlight them on our web site. We look forward to your submissions!

How did you get into training? I got into it through my ex-husband. I started as a way to lose weight. I didn’t want to compete. After six months I entered my first tournament and liked it. I’ve been competing ever since.
Tournaments/Awards: I have competed in lots of tourmants, including Grapplers Quest, De La Riva Cup, Daytona Open, NAGA and the Florida State Championships. I’ve placed anywhere from first through third in white belt, blue belt and purple belt divisions.
I have a little boy who recently started training as well.
