This started as a blog about training together as a family, in part to inspire other women & families to get involved. As female participation in jiu jitsu has increased, as we have grown as athletes and as we learned that families training together aren’t such an anomaly, the blog has evolved. Jen gets personal with posts on ambition, challenges & achievements in BJJ, CrossFit & with nutrition, while Tom's posts are more educational, informative and analytical in regards to training. On occasion you may hear from the kids.

The Sisterhood of Jiu Jitsu

by Jen

It seems that the number of female Jiujitsu bloggers and resources has exploded in the two years that I’ve been training. This may be because I’m paying more attention lately, but I don’t think so. I find it comforting since I personally know only a few women who train. Folllowing the other bloggers helps me to remember I’m not alone in my love for bjj.

New blogger, Ashley, recently posted this video which was shared with her by Slideyfoot in this post. It sums up a lot of my feelings about training so I wanted to pass it on.

Girls, keep sharing your love for this sport. Hopefully, the more we talk about it, more will be moved to join us!
