Yes. You Can!
You’ll see moves and think “Why would Sensei expect that I could do that?” or “This is too complicated.” or “My body doesn’t move that way.” Then slowly, but ever so surely those thoughts will be replaced with “OK, show me that again.” And “How do I get there from here?” or “Wow, that’s a really cool move!” So my greatest evolution in Jiu-Jitsu isn’t just the progression of skill level; it’s your belief in your own abilities.
If you’re a woman or know a woman, you know we have a strength that is undefinable. It’s the unleashing and tapping into that strength that is the ultimate benefit of this martial art form. It will challenge you in ways you don’t expect. And when you meet and exceed those challenges, you’ll see yourself developing as a martial artist.
BJJ is about adapting. You will do things you didn’t think you were capable of doing. You’ll have mental barriers that come up and tell you the reasons BJJ isn’t for you. Try it anyway! We have 4-year-old girls doing Jiu-Jitsu. And they absolutely love seeing their role models on the mat. You can do this!
