I am so happy to be a part of this movement of empowered women empowering women through jiu jitsu.  My first stop a couple of weeks ago was Tennessee where I was the guest at the Girls Gone Gi Camp, an organisation that was founded by Pan Am and World Champ Rachel Morrison Casias who is a pocket rocket black belt who somehow survives  pretty much on Pepsi??? lol

 Izel Bazua: Mexico's highest ranked female and a pioneer for the sport with all her camps, competitions and refereeing.

My next stop was Mexico where I taught the camp alongside none other than Mackenzie Dern for the Ma'at Association founded by Itzel Bazua who is a brown belt, the highest rank in BJJ in Mexico who is an absolute pioneer for BJJ in her country and is making a big difference. Hats off to these ladies who are paving the way for women in BJJ and who are making a difference in the community. These ladies are providing opportunities for other women to learn and grow and are building the sisterhood that is getting stronger and stronger each  year.
