Women Only Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)
Sisterhood like no other.
1. It teaches you to love your body for what it can do rather than for what it looks like.
Jiu jitsu erases a lot of those insecurities by showing you all the awesome things your body can do. all that exercise will get you closer to the hot bod you’ve always wanted, but by the time you make it there, you’ll be way more invested in your abilities than your appearance.
2. It smashes ideas about what a woman “should” or “shouldn’t” do.
Jiu-jitsu is a giant middle finger to every time someone has scolded you for being unladylike or tried to put you in your “place” as a woman.
On the mats, everyone is equal; there is no gender. You will get your butt handed to you just as much as the men do, and you’ll also dish out a fair bit of butt-handing yourself.
3. It makes you a positive role model for younger girls.
Jiu jitsu comes with plenty of benefits, and when you have a daughter, a niece, or any other young lady who wants to be you when she grows up, you pass on a lot of those benefits to her just by showing her what you do. You can give that little girl a head start on loving herself and making friends who genuinely care about her well-being.
Who knows? You might even convince her to get an early start on training!
