This past weekend was a record breaker in women’s BJJ events. The Girls in Gi group run by Shama Ko organized two events; one in Texas, at Revolution Dojo, which was taught by guest instructor Veronica Mota-Messina; and the other event in Oklahoma, at Triton Fight Center. Black belt Gina Franssen and purple belts Jessica Champion-Linnabery and Janie Meadows were the guest instructors who shared their knowledge amongst the ladies.
This was probably the biggest weekend for women’s Jiu-Jitsu in history, with 165 women attending the Oklahoma event and 60 women attending the Texas event ,which made headlines in the news! It is great to see the impact these all-woman BJJ groups are having on the sport and the difference they are making in women’s lives.
