Class sizes are capped to maintain social distancing between pairs. Girls train with the same partner each week. Mats and equipment will be thoroughly cleaned before and after each class. We are booking spots on a first come first serve basis. Free trials will only be permitted if there are any openings. Please be prepared to attend each week, as we maintain the same partners in class. To reserve a spot now please fully register. To get on the waitlist for a free trial, please register for a free trial on our sign up page.
Our goal is two fold: to give girls the skills needed to defend and stand up for themselves physically and verbally; and the confidence and resilience needed to succeed at whatever they do. Here's how we do that.
Learn the most effective and realistic martial arts, Kickboxing or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
Every class includes moves from our self defense curriculum. It takes 20 classes to learn all of the self defense techniques in the program.
Healthy Body Image
Learning martial arts helps girls see their body in terms of what it can do, instead of what it looks like.
Self defense techniques taught in our classes & camps
Girls track progress on their curriculum tracker, where they catalogue what they've learned, and see what's next.
Student of the Month
Awarded in each class to a student who shows commitment, effort, and teamwork!
Every six months in the program is rewarded with a new piece of GWF merch that symbolizes hard work and dedication.

Skills For Success
We help girls build confidence, discipline, resilience, assertiveness, perseverance, and mental strength.
The GWF Code
Our student expectations include presenting yourself confidently in class, giving your best effort, taking initiative, speaking up, and respecting teammates.
Students learn our GirlSafe content, which includes expert principles of street safety, online safety, situational awareness, and more.
"When you hold girls to a high standard, they rise to meet it, and they take great pride in doing so. This is why GWF is so transformative—you're going to have fun, gain life changing skills, be challenged and encouraged, and learn that you are capable of anything you set your mind to."
Gemma Sheehan, Founder of Girls Who Fight.
