Girls Who Fight is a self-defense, MMA, and confidence program for kids and teens. Our programs are lead by champion athletes who are passionate about helping our students develop an unbreakable character, while building unbreakable bonds. Beyond martial arts, we teach our girls how to speak assertively, walk confidently, and present a powerful self. We pride ourselves on helping our students gain self-discipline, a healthy body image, and a grounded sense of confidence in their mental and physical strength.

It's not about training girls to fight. It's about training them to be so capable, so confident, and so resilient, that they never have to fight. 





KIDS: 8-12  |  TEENS: 13-18

Our classes are built to help girls become confident, capable, and resilient, while developing powerful skills. Girls learn a mix of kickboxing, Brazilian jiu jitsu, and wrestling with our champion female coaches.

"Gemma teaches very much needed set of skills as important as writing and reading. This does not compare to any courses I took in the past! My daughter completed a week long summer camp and came back each day to show us what was taught. I can whisper cues such as "confidence" when we walk in crowds and my daughter immediately stands tall and owns her space."


"So much fun! The self-defense workshop surpassed all expectations. The moves were simple, useful, easy to remember and Gemma is so genuine, knowledgeable, strong, nice, cool, you name it. Definitely considering singing up for one of their weekly classes. What an awesome business!"


"Gemma and Danika are awesome! They did a corporate lunch and learn at TD and the audience was very engaged. I leaned useful knowledge and Gemma's story was very inspiring. Highly recommend it!"


"I did a women's self defense seminar here and my 7 year old daughter did the week long "Girls Who Fight" summer camp. Both were exceptional. Gemma, the instructor, is warm and knowledgeable, with boundless energy. After completing the camp, my daughter now has confidence that will help her in *all* areas of her life, not just in self-defense. She can now do things like escape a choke hold, kick, and knock an opponent off balance. She also learned about situational awareness and uses it in her daily life. I love that she learned these valuable life skills while also having the time of her life. We owe Gemma and Girls Who Fight Inc a debt of gratitude!"
