This Saturday, December 10th 2022 we will be hosting a Girls in Gis event at our academy. This academy is open to women and girls of all ages and no experience is necessary. Register for the event here. This event will be led by our own Professor Tessa and Coach Hannah. The event will run from 1:30 PM – 4:30 PM MST.

Girls in Gis is a community of women and girls in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that come together through donation based training events which are hosted, instructed, and attended only by women and girls. It’s our time to come together and take over the mats! Women and girls of all ages and skill levels are welcome to attend from any academy affiliation. We welcome beginners and don’t require any experience. Our events are designed for 100% participation. However, we do allow parents or chaperone to accompany underage participants as spectators.

Our events are donation based in order to provide equal opportunity to everyone. Your donations provide paid teaching opportunities for our guest instructor(s) and help to expand and make Girls in Gis programs such as our events, our leadership program and instructional training programs and our scholarships possible. If you are not able to make a donation please contact us and we will work with you so that you are able to participate.

She is a Pan American champion and a multiple time Master’s world’s Championship medalist. She enjoys simplifying the instructional part of Jiu-Jitsu for everyone to understand from basic movements to advanced strategies.

Hannah Strong is a purple belt North Carolina native that currently resides in Colorado,. She started training in jiu jitsu in 2015. Upon moving to Colorado in 2014 strong had no training experience. As a former powerlifter Strong was seeking out another work out alternative, She decided to check out jiu jitsu and fell in love. She started teaching kids in 2016 and still teaches kids today. She has competed a decent amount in the earlier part of her journey, However she says injuries have slowed her down.

Congrats to Helen at Grappling Industries

Also a big congrats to Helen who competed at her first tournament last Saturday December 3rd in Lakewood, Colorado and took home gold medal in gi and a silver medal in no gi at Grappling Industries. I was super impressed with her takedowns, passing and grit that she showed in her matches. She hit numerous double leg takedowns and passed a lot of guards, then went straight to mount after showing great jiu-jitsu out there.
