Building Super-Girls Through Self Defense

Girls Who Fight is perfectly aligned with the Girl Scout mission: to help build girls of confidence, courage, and character. We help girls unlock these super-powers through fun and empowering self defense training, street-smart strategies that keep girls safe, and instilling the confidence in every girl that she can and will be her own super hero!

Our special 75 minute Girl Scout workshop teaches Girls Scouts the self defense basics and allows girls to earn their self defense badge. Lessons are tailored for each age group, ensuring a relevant, engaging, and fun training for every troop from Daisies to Ambassadors. Workshops can be held at our martial arts gym in Highland Village TX, or at your location.

Earn Your Self Defense Badge!

STEP 1: Learn Self Defense Techniques

Girls learn simple, fun, and effective self defense techniques from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and kickboxing, like how to defend a punch, escape a wrist grab, reverse being pinned to the ground, and more!

STEP 2: Learn Street-Smart Strategies

Girls learn how to always be one step ahead through situational awareness and trusting their instincts; and how to be a non-target by walking confidently and speaking assertively

STEP 3: Take Action

Girl Scouts get the opportunity to demonstrate their new physical and verbal self defense skills in front of the class in a fun self defense challenge with the instructor, demonstrating courage and confidence and getting cheered on by their fellow Girl Scouts!

What Troops Say

 "We booked a 1.5 hr self-defense training session and it was amazing. Everyone, even our shyest girls, participated fully, and Gemma took the time to watch each one and give them specific pointers and encouragement. She had them laughing and fully engaged from beginning to end."
-Melissa Brydges, Troop Leader

Gemma is amazing! She came out to our meeting and taught our girls some self defense moves. They listened to her really well and had fun trying out the techniques on each other. She talked to them like they were adults, and more than capable of doing what she was showing them, which was really great. Highly recommend!!


-Caitlin A, Troop Leader

“Fantastic program! My daughter was empowered and excited to have some fighting skills and she's keen to learn more. Girls need to carry themselves confidently and be aware of their surroundings, and Gemma does a fantastic job of balancing street smart education with fun, energizing martial arts. It's so great to have this program that's tailored to girls and women!”


-Erica Westman, Parent

Physical Self Defense Skills

"Gemma takes the time to connect with the girls. Her program and the connection she and the other coaches have with the girls has inspired my daughter to try hard, push herself harder and accomplish more than she ever expected. I can not recommend Girls Who Fight enough."

-Trish B, Parent

“Gemma came and taught girls at our church. She was able to keep it very engaging and informative for all levels/ages. The exercises she had us do were fun and taught us a lot. We all feel a little more safer knowing some ways to protect ourselves. She is very professional, kind, and motivating. Highly recommend her!”

-Kenna P, Church of Latter Day Saints

Confidence, Anti-Bullying, Self Defense

If there's anything girls need today it's confidence, awareness, and the ability to defend themselves from bullies and predators. Our fun, empowering program combines self defense and martial arts, bully-proofing and street smarts, and the undeniable confidence building that comes along with gaining these life changing skills.
