The Significance of Women Only Events

Updated: Mar 6

For women in Jiu-Jitsu, participating in women-only events holds a unique significance that goes beyond the regular training routine. My goal with this post is to explore the importance of women-only events in fostering a supportive and empowering environment for the women that train.



I'd like to add that as the author of this blog, I'm a man. As a male practitioner in this sport, there's going to be quite a few things that I'm never going to know or quite understand. I do my best to be informed but I understand that even in a close mentorship relationship between myself and a female student, there will be gaps between us. With my group, I actually want the women to attend women's only events like Girls In Gis and Alchemize Fight Wear camps and events.



Building Confidence and Camaraderie

Women-only events create a comfortable and inclusive space where female Jiu-Jitsu enthusiasts can build confidence in their skills without any reservations. It's a chance to connect with like-minded individuals, share experiences, and forge lasting friendships within the supportive community of women in the sport.


With some gyms, being the only women isn't all that uncommon and no matter how understanding the guys at the gym can be, there's always going to be a bit a bit of a gap. At these gyms where there aren't that many women, these events give women the chance to just freely be around other women.


Considering this is a Martial Art, you're going to have a healthy percentage of practitioners that come to the gym that have been abused verbally and physically.


Tailored Learning Experience

These events often cater to the specific needs and challenges that women may encounter in their Jiu-Jitsu journey. Instructors at women-only events can focus on addressing techniques and strategies that align with the unique attributes of female practitioners, ensuring a more tailored and effective learning experience.


This is a big one. I believe you can learn great technique from any qualified instructor, but there is a difference when you learn from someone who isn't able to use either size or strength. The sharpest and cleanest technique that you'll see on the mat in my opinion will come from women and smaller men. Their technique just has to be so much better in order to it to work.


Mentorship Opportunities

Women-only events provide an excellent platform for mentorship opportunities. Experienced female practitioners and instructors can share their insights, guide newcomers, and inspire the next generation of women in Jiu-Jitsu. This mentorship fosters a sense of community and encourages continuous growth within the sport.


Jiu-Jitsu without solid mentoring isn't nearly as fun. That mentorship helps how students move without a ton of wasted movements. You can learn from someone else mistakes instead of going through the massive trial and error phase that so many of us encounter.



Embracing Diversity

While Jiu-Jitsu is known for its diverse community, women-only events offer a space for celebrating and embracing the diversity of female practitioners. It encourages women from different backgrounds, ages, and skill levels to come together to exchange their experiences that contribute to the overall growth of the Jiu-Jitsu community.


Conclusion

In conclusion, women-only events in Jiu-Jitsu play a crucial role in creating a positive and empowering environment for female practitioners. From building confidence to breaking down stereotypes, these events contribute significantly to the growth and inclusivity of the sport. By actively participating in women-only events, women in Jiu-Jitsu not only enhance their skills but also contribute to the vibrant and diverse tapestry that makes up the Jiu-Jitsu community.
