Our Story

Established in 2017 by MMA fighter Gemma Sheehan, Girls Who Fight was created to bring the invaluable lessons of Mixed Martial Arts to the female audience. We believe that learning how to defend and stand up for yourself is a critical life skill, as essential as reading and writing. Everything we do is dedicated to improving the self defense and street safety skills of as many women and girls as possible. From fun, unique, and empowering programs like our weekly classes and summer camps, to our educational blog and social media, to informative workshops for organizations around the world. Our mission is to give each student the street safety skills needed to avoid danger, the self defense skills needed to defend a physical threat, and the confidence needed to succeed at whatever they do. If through all our efforts, we help even one woman or child avoid harm or defend themselves from violence, we will consider our organization to be a complete success. This is our purpose, and there is much work to be done.
