5 Reasons Why Women Should Train Jiu Jitsu (That Aren’t For Self Defense)

The number-one reason women are usually given for why they should train jiu jitsu is “because it teaches you how to protect yourself.”

There’s a good reason for it: jiu jitsu is designed for weaker, smaller opponents to dominate larger ones using technique rather than strength. Being as a woman in the United States is assaulted or beaten every nine seconds and has a 1 in 5 chance of being raped in her lifetime, it would make sense that jiu jitsu would be a recommended form of self defense for a group of people that is (usually) smaller and weaker than the people most likely to assault them.

As someone who started jiu jitsu after nearly being sexually assaulted by a taxi driver about four years ago (and has since used it to get myself out of another sketchy situation), I’m a huge, huge proponent of anyone learning BJJ to protect themselves.

That said, jiu jitsu has so much more to offer than just self defense. You’ll get in shape, develop lifelong friendships, and have a lot of fun – and that’s only the beginning!

If you know a woman or are a woman who’s been thinking about stepping onto the mats, there are plenty of reasons to do it that don’t involve choking out would-be rapists.

1. It teaches you to love your body for what it can do rather than for what it looks like.
2. You don’t need to be big and strong to be good at it.
3. The sisterhood is like no other.
4. It smashes ideas about what a woman “should” or “shouldn’t” do.
5. It makes you a positive role model for younger girls.

Whether you’re motivated by self defense or something completely different, it’s never a bad idea to put on that gi and take your first steps on an unforgettable journey.

We will see you on the mats!!



Discovering Your Inner Strength with Muay Thai TrainingIf You Think Muay Thai …

Discovering Your Inner Strength with Muay Thai Training

If You Think Muay Thai Is Just Physical… Keep Reading Because The Answer Will Shock You!
When most people sign up for Muay Thai lessons, their initial thoughts turn to the sport’s physical/technical aspects, as well as how the training can help them lose weight.

Maybe you are in the same boat?

However, we quickly discover that the ‘Art of the Eight Limbs’ is more than just learning self-defense techniques, throwing proper punches and kicks, and working up a decent sweat.

In fact, gaining inner strength and self-confidence are the greatest benefits of Muay Thai, the ultimate reward for all your hard work and effort. Make no mistake, this martial art demands hard work and perseverance. However, by pushing your physical and mental limits, you as a Muay Thai student will learn how to harness body, mind, and spirit to achieve massive goals – both in training and everyday life.

The Four (4) Pillars of Muay Thai Inner Strength.

What does Muay Thai offer that will build your inner strength and character like no other activity? A simple look at the following “pillars” should clarify things:

1. Discipline.

Self-discipline is a key to achieving personal inner strength, as this is where your commitment to Muay Thai will really show.

Question: Do you have the discipline to excel in all aspects of Muay Thai training?

✔️Yoga (balance, flexibility, injury prevention)
✔️Overall fitness (cardiovascular endurance, stamina, weight loss, etc.)
✔️Basic Muay Thai Techniques: Footwork, shadowboxing, etc.
✔️Bag work, Pads work, and Drills Training.
Sparring sessions.
✔️Post-training Recovery: Stretching, Relaxing (Cool Down) and Rehydration.
If you answered ‘Yes’, then you are on the path of ✔️Self-fulfillment and (possibly?) spiritual enlightenment.

2. Courage.

A Muay Thai fighter must have the courage to push through when the odds are stacked against him and all seems lost in the squared circle. Often, he must dig down deep within himself – even against himself – to complete a fight, complete a round, or fulfill training requirements as his body cries out to surrender. It is this fighting spirit that will separate you from the pack.

3. Respect.

Superior technical skills are worthless if you do not respect the historical and cultural heritage of Muay Thai…

4. Vision.

Muay Thai training is visual art in motion, and demands intimate self-knowledge of your body and its capabilities. Yoga, fitness training, and technical work (see above) all play a role in your development. However, you must also develop strategic and tactical knowledge about fighting, e.g. evaluating opponents and exploiting their weaknesses. With experience, this knowledge can evolve into the clear wisdom needed to outperform and achieve championship status.

Hopefully, the Four Pillars description above will encourage you to visit our facility. I can’t tell you how many folks have walked into the gym lacking self-esteem and confidence, only to become tremendous trainees and fighters within a short period of time.

It doesn’t matter what point in life you find yourself in right now. Take the Thai boxing challenge to gain the inner strength and peace you so richly deserve.
