"Gemma is an excellent instructor. She is patient and carefully explains the “how’s and why’s” of the defence moves. No matter what age you are - I highly recommend that you take the Girls Who Fight workshop."


"I had Gemma come out and do a Mom's and Daughters Private session. She was amazing - we all loved her. She is a patient and knowledgeable instructor on self defense. She took the time to go through all the exercises and made sure everyone was comfortable doing them. The girls (age 9 - 11) felt more confident about getting out of difficult situations. We all look forward to taking more classes with her through the Girls Who Fight camp or weekend classes.
THANK YOU Gemma! We are so thankful for sharing your knowledge and feel empowered with what you have taught us."


"A friend and I took the 2 hour self defence class together and it was a lot of fun and very informative. Gemma is a sweetheart, very patient and caring with her students. She is knowledgeable about her craft as she has been doing martial arts for more than 10 years and her priority is to make sure girls and women leave her classes having gained confidence in themselves and their ability to be better prepared to defend themselves. Girls who fight is definitely the way to go whether its for you or your kids!"
