The Girls Who Fight Film By Director Jennifer Roberts.
Girls Who Fight was founded by ex-MMA fighter Gemma Sheehan. As a rising athlete with a record of 5-1, a Pan Am gold in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and nominated for best up and coming female fighter internationally, Gemma was advised to stop fighting due to emerging visible brain damage. She then started Girls Who Fight Inc, building a leading self defense and martial arts program for females in Canada. Today, Stand Your Ground, Camp Hero, and Girls Who Fight bring self defense programs to different audiences, while employing local female athletes who share their incredible skills. Our overarching goal is to help women and girls gain mental and physical strength that will help them succeed in the world.

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.
