It took months for BJJ Coach Tawny Haynes to try her first jiu jitsu class. When a friend invited her to drop in, it was a hard pass. Then one day she decided to give it a try. She choked a male partner, and she was hooked!

“I love the self-defense aspect of the sport and the way it’s changed how I carry myself. The confidence you gain in pushing yourself to be comfortable in the uncomfortable is priceless. It’s incredibly empowering and liberating.”

Starting Tuesday, August 23rd, Coach Tawny will be teaching our first Women’s BJJ Foundations class! And as she explained, there are so many benefits to women who want to train jiu jitsu.

  1. Physical Fitness. Brazilian jiu jitsu is a great way to get in shape and lose weight while having fun. With consistent training, you’ll be in the best shape of your life!
  2. Self-defense.  Jiu jitsu is about skill over strength, and it teaches you to fight from the ground. It’s designed to give smaller fighters the advantage over bigger and stronger opponents. You will learn how to defend yourself in real-life fighting situations and walk like you own the earth.
